5 Emerging Cooking Channels on YouTube
Thanksgiving and December holidays are coming up, which means, for a lot of people, it’s time to cook, consume, and celebrate with plenty of food. With all of the culinary content that’s cropped up on YouTube, it’s not a space to ignore when prepping meals for visiting family members.
As you’ll see with these growing food channels on the video platform, identified by Outrigger Media‘s Emerging Talent Tracker tool, such creators wholeheartedly embrace tentpole events like Thanksgiving, which also makes them prime targets for brands seeking partnerships that will get them noticed by potential customers.
“The opportunities for partnership in this vertical are ripe,” noted Cristin Jordan, the vice president and director of social content at DigitasLBi, “and it’s a great way for marketers to capitalize on a content creator’s audience, supported through consistent organic search.”
This organic search may very well increase in time for the approaching pie-centric holiday, which has thus far provoked relevant video from the following emerging YouTube talent.

Not as popular as the cooking personality’s Food Tube, his drinking channel is coming up in the ranks, providing cocktail recipes along with info on beers, milkshakes, and smoothies. Other drink food and specialists narrate recipes, as well, like this one for a pumpkin pie smoothie (to stick with the whole holiday pie theme):
