A lot of home cooks have gone from amateur to amazing during the self-isolation period, but baking and making the same dishes over and over is starting to get a little dull. Introducing the YouTube cooking challenge; something you should definitely add to your kitchen to-do list for this weekend. Whether you follow the lead of one of the videos below, or challenge your siblings to a cooking challenge of your own making, it’s a sure-fire way to spice things up in the kitchen.


Whichever challenge you'd like to try, make sure you've got the help of a responsible adult nearby!

Cooking challenges are fun, but burns, cuts and spills are not.

 

1. Cook Using Ingredients Starting with the First Letter of Your Name

If you’re name’s Anna then you can only cook with ingredients that begin with the letter “A”. Avocado? Tick. Anchovies? Yep! Mustard? Nope. Test this one out against your siblings and see who can develop the most creative recipe using alliteration.

 

2. Shop Your Ingredients from a Convenience Store

Convenience stores and petrol stations are known to stock the basics, so you’re pretty limited when it comes to finding diverse ingredients. But, this challenge could take place anywhere that sells food; you could shop the aisles of your closest international grocery store, or a specialised spice shop. Take this opportunity to develop and new and creative recipe using things you’ve never eaten before!

 

3. Limit Yourself to One Type of Cooking Utensil

How much does a cooking utensil matter to the final dish… really? Well, you’re about to find out in this creative cooking challenge. While we don't recommend using a microwave (consider it a fire hazard!) we do recommend to stick to one type of cooking utensil to cook an extravagant feast, i.e. using only an oven, only a frypan or only a crock pot. You might be surprised to discover a new favourite recipe!
