Learn How to Cook Like a Top Chef With Salted
Master every kitchen skill you ever wanted to on the Netflix of cooking videos.
If your idea of dinner is popping frozen meals into the microwave or ordering takeout, it's about time you upgraded your cooking skills. Allow Salted, a subscription-based cooking video streaming site, to be your new kitchen secret. Whether you're starting with the basics or looking to experiment with more complicated recipes, Salted will get you going in the right direction with the guidance of 50 master chefs at the helm of the nation's most noteworthy restaurants.
When you think of the way we save hundreds of recipes on Pinterest and never try them out or collect entire libraries of heavy cookbooks and never revisit them, learning visually seems like a much smarter option. Salted's original videos cover a range of topics, and are all beautifully produced so you feel like the chefs are in your own kitchen. You can search by chef, recipe and skills.
We found searching under "skills" to be the most useful—you get a breakdown of the fundamentals such as "How To Perfectly Boil an Egg," "How To Use a Stand Mixer" and "How To Roast." You can also get more specific with diets by watching options including "Understanding Paleo Nutrition" and hone in on types of cuisine like Thai, Italian, Mexican and more.
Salted also has several multi-video courses you can take on particular topics. One we tried out was "How To Cook Bootcamp," which covered foundational topics including steaming, knife skills, grilling, seasoning essentials, frying, sautéing and making sauces. Some other fun courses we'd like to try include "Cooking for Date Night" and "The Ultimate Vegetarian Starter Course."
If you're less of a visual learner, you can also read the instructions written out alongside lists of materials needed and cooking times. We guarantee you'll be sucked in for hours at a time browsing through the site's features—one thing to definitely check out are the chef interviews under each of their profiles.
Membership is only $10 a month which, considering all the resources at your fingertips, is a major steal! Sign up for Salted here.
