Stream Cooking Masters

I don't like to cook (or bake or grill or...); it is entirely too much work. But I do enjoy watching others make delicious-looking food. Hoopla, one of Herrick District Library's streaming services, has us covered.

There's the classic The Great British Baking Show. Always a delight to watch. There are five seasons available on Hoopla, which should keep you busy for at least a bit.

Part travel show, part cooking show, Sachie's Kitchen takes you around Japan to discover new food and then shows you how to make those tempting morsels at home. I particularly enjoyed the street food episode.
