The hallmark of the death of home cooking narrative is a singular vision of “real” home cooking as cooked at home, from scratch, including fresh ingredients, and using complex techniques. Anything that falls outside of this vision is viewed as a symptom of the demise of home cooking. However, the internet offers a counter-narrative that emphasizes both the continuities and complexities of home cooking. In particular, YouTube cooking videos rebuff the “death of home cooking narrative” by underscoring the ways in which home cooks adapt meal preparation strategies and kitchen traditions to meet their current needs. Far from a singular, rigid view of the meaning of cooking at home, these videos reveal the dynamic nature of today’s cooking practices.
