What are your favorite YouTube/online cooking channels?

I love watching YouTube cooking channels like Hot Thai Kitchen or Maangchi (Korean) food. Are there other home cooking channels like this out there?

I'm looking for cooking videos that revolve around a cuisine or culinary tradition and not so much channels that are more health/diet-based (such as gluten-free, low-carb, low-fat, etc.) Skill level can vary as often I'm just watching for fun and to learn about other cultures' foods and food traditions.

I do have a slight preference for videos based in North America (where I am), for the sole reason that if I try to make the foods it's easier for me to replicate due to similar ingredient availability, ingredient naming, measurements, etc., but this is not a requirement.

Cooking with dog! Its silly, but the techniques are solid, and the food is damn fine. Most of the Japanese ingredients that they use are more pantry-style items, and can be ordered online, or at your local asian market (H mart will probably have everything you need).

Also, its not specifically a youtube channel, but I always give a shout out to Good Eats, generally entertaining, and gives just enough scientific backing and history to really help you become a better, broader cook. They have the DVD's at our local library, and we routinely pick up a few.

Cooking with Dog. Really good Japanese food, well explained and they usually include options for ingredients you can find them in other parts of the world and give metric & US Style measurements for things. I have been able to get most of them at my local Mid Western Grocery store except for 1 or two things I got on Amazon.

There isn't a single cuisine being discussed, but I thoroughly enjoy the Food Wishes youtube channel.

Depression Cooking with Clara. (That's Clara who lived through the Great Depression, not Clara who is clinically depressed, which would not be all that fun to watch actually.)
