Found this feature in today's AGE (newspaper). You click on the chef/cook & watch their dish being prepared. Just checking it out now.:

I'd forgotten all about this thread till I stumbled on it again recently, looking for something else completely ....

Anyway, the last post was in 2009 sometime, so no doubt there'd be many, many new cooking sites which are now available.

They don't necessarily need be about particular recipes.

I rather like the idea of sharing programs about regional cooking, different approaches in different countries & cultures. Up to you, anyway ...

I'll throw this one in & perhaps some of you might be interested. It's a series of programs about Kylie Kwong, who's sort of Australia's contemporary Chinese cooking guru. She's very down to earth. The programs are as much about her family, her restaurant, Chinese/Australian culture, as the traditional type of cooking approach.

If you have any programs from your part of the world to throw into the mix, I'd be really interested.:

@msolga,
I hope these "work" for you. Fingers crossed.
They're from an Oz link, obviously.
Could you let me know if there's a problem with viewing them in your part of the world, please? I'd love to post more.
And I'd really love to check out programs from other parts of the world, if you'd care to post them here.

@msolga,
I love Kylie Kwong! I used to catch her on Sunday afternoons. I don't think she's on here anymore or if she is I don't know what channel.

There used to be an old Cajun guy, Justin Wilson who had a program on back in the '80s. He's passed away now, but he was quite a character. He started every show by saying, "How y'all are? I'm glad for you to see me. I guarontee." He would proceed to cook up a mess o' gumbo or jambalaya. He taught us about the trinity of green pepper, onion and celery that was the base for Cajun dishes and topped everything off with Loosiana hot sauce. I miss that guy. I guarontee.

Oh yea. He has a website http://www.justinwilson.com/Default.aspx

@Swimpy,
So the videos worked in the US, Swimpy?
I was a bit worried that they mightn't.

Cajun cooking?
You know, yesterday, when I found this thread again, I was thinking ...
I would love it if someone here posted some programs on that. (Not making this up, I swear! Wink )
Also southern US cooking, which I pick up interesting bits & pieces on from time to time ...

I really like Kylie, too.
I love how she's so matter of fact, yet really enthusiastic at the same time.
No airs & graces at all. Smile

@msolga,
Yep,she seems like a woman you'd love to have a cup of tea with. I didn't try the videos. I assume I can view them. I'm trying to think of good examples of southern cooks. Right now I can only come up with Paula Deen who I really don't care for. It's too late for my brain, I'm afraid.

@Swimpy,
When and if the spirit moves you, Swimpy, (assuming there's readily available material, of course) I would definitely be interested. Smile

@msolga,
I recall that Nathalie Dupree has wriitten many cookbooks on southern cooking, mostly southern low country styles from South Carolina. She used to have a tv show many years ago. She has a website, but nothing too fancy. http://www.nathalie.com/

Also in the Louisiana/Cajun mode is Emeril, of course. http://www.emerils.com/
Also John Besch, who is a young restaurantuer from New Orleans. he's got some videos on his website http://www.chefjohnbesh.com/video.html

JPB could probably give you many more suggestions on New Orleans.

@Swimpy,
Thank you, Swimpy.
Very good of you.

I've browsed through the links you've posted.
Interesting.
Unfortunately some of the Emeril videos (those I was most interested in, dammit.) couldn't be accessed.
But never mind. I learned about the difference between a chowder & a bisque & the secrets of his Table 10 salad, anyway! Smile

Later on today when I have more time, I'll come back for another browse & see what else I can find.
John Besch interests me.

Thanks again.

You look to Emeril for all this? Please.

@ossobuco,
I do, osso.
You may not be aware of this, but bisques & chowders are much more a US than an Oz thing. (In fact, any good videos on the subject/s would be most appreciated.)
But I would have loved to have been able to access his Fresh Food Fast videos. Unfortunately no go in Oz.

@ossobuco,
Oh, woe is me, as I get thumbed.

You want me to slide and respect this guy like a food saint?

Stop it.
I am interested in authentic recipes.

@msolga,
I surely don't mind your finding out about bisques and chowders, especially by a popularizer if that makes you happy.
I don't give a hoot about videos, find them generally annoying.

I'll look up a few links for you, but not right now.

I suppose that is not clear - I'd like individual people with time worn recipes to post.

OK, no problem with that at all, osso.

However, this particular thread is about internet sites & videos for information about cooking. Which I am very interested in, as well as A2Kers' tried & true recipes. There is no reason why the two cannot go happily hand in hand. In fact I think that's a bonus.

@msolga,
Emeril has become a bit of a joke here, Olga. He was way overexposed when he was on the Food Channel. He was their first big star. He's still a good cook, though.

@Swimpy,
Ah, I see, Swimpy.
However this was my very first encounter with him. Different country & all, no cable ...
And I thought, from the little I've been able to see of him, that he was perfectly OK.
