It's the swearingest Aussie YouTube cooking channel that we need in these difficult times. Nat's What I Reckon shows you how to make Quarantine Sauce, Carbo-Rona Sauce, Quarantine Spirit Risotto, End of Days Bolognese, Sin Bin Soup and the Crowd Goes Mild Curry. NSFWFH if you have kids or other sensitive humans around.

This made me intensely homesick, especially when he said to give the risotto "a good belt of white wine”. Happy Anzac Day, you legends.

I've been enjoying these a lot on social media. But let's be honest, that's pretty fancy for antipodean cooking. He needs to learn how to speed cook.

These are my new favourite cooking videos. I love how he gives people permission to "use what you have, cut it up how you want". When I first started cooking I followed recipes to the letter; I'd hunt down specific ingredients I'd only use once, for that recipe; I'd pull out the measuring spoons for salt and oil. Once I got over all that, cooking was a lot more fun.

Also he has totally awesome knife skills I wanna chop onions like that

"Free range lorikeet broth" is my new sockpuppet name.

I love these. F*ck jar sauce.

I kept expecting Welcome to the Jungle to start but really it was the colonial style spice rack in the back that rounded it out for me.

Sorry dude. I come from a long line of Italian, simmer the homemade sauce all day people. Sometimes I don't feel like doing the dance. After a long period of testing I have found sauce in a jar that is made from San Marzano tomatoes. And it's pretty damn good.

I come from a simmer-the-homemade-sauce-all-day grandmother and I bridled at that sauce, too, but then I thought, well, to be fair, what he ends up with is going to taste exactly like jar sauce.

I laughed my arse off at this. All the haters take note that at least he's not putting fucking sugar in it like most half-arsed restaurants do.

I just want to go on record that I am not a hater. I especially liked when he said that just because it's the end of the world doesn't mean you have to eat like a fuckwit. I loled.

Fuck I love it when he napalmed himself with the cooking chilis. I did that for a pickle brine where lazy ass me put it in the microwave to heat up forgetting I put a tablespoon of chili flake in it. The entire house's sinuses were clear for days.

I love how his stock pot lid is a random one that doesn't actually fit, just like mine.

I also loled at the "it doesn't fucking Parramatta".

I clicked on the Bolognese because it's a good test of what people like, and IMO, he's legit. (Well except for the rosemary. But I can live with that).
Why are there two different kitchens, though?

"Never buy rosemary. Go for a fuckin walk, it grows out the back of pubs." Love this guy. That potato-leek soup looks fantastic.

SKILL LIVIL: BEGINNAH. Happy to confirm that the potato-leek soup turned out delicious despite no free range rosemary in Brooklyn.

I saw this last week and have taken to saying "fuck that off" more than is probably wise.

Seriously, I've watched every one of these at least 5 times. It's very much my own cooking style. No pretense. No preciousness. Just good shit. I just wish I had the linguistic panache.
And now I have to say "bang it in a bowl" every time.

Thanks, rory - you've just introduced me to my new favourite Aussie.

Here's a Grauniad piece about him. Seems like a genuinely interesting bloke.
