These Extremely Soothing Cooking Videos Are All About Silence

By

Food is a sensory experience, but that’s sometimes lost in the short, quick-cut video model that’s taking over the internet these days. Lucky for us, there’s Silently Cooking, which, as its name suggests, is a series of food videos dedicated to cooking silently. Cooper Nelson, a news videographer in Albany, New York, says he launched the channel after getting fed up with typical host-centered cooking videos.

As for BuzzFeed, Nelson says he has a “love/hate relationship with those videos. They’re perfect for lighting a spark in people to cook! But, anyone can open a can of biscuits and melt cheese on them … I wanted to try something I didn’t think people really did on the web. So I told myself ‘no music beds.’ I wanted the Natural Sound to help drive the video. Something people can maybe learn a little something from, but, more importantly, something that just looked and sounded good.”
