Debunking Viral Tik Tok Videos

 

In this episode I am debunking viral videos from Tik Tok, facebook and youtube. There continues to be a meteoric rise in the amount of ‘fake’ content surrounding the topic of food. Perhaps because food is easily accessible and relatively low cost for most content producers. It is important to educate young people how to check if a source is reputable. Misinformation can be donagerous and one hack in this video could make you very sick. We will explore can you safely cook steak in a toaster? Do razor blades dice strawberries? If you put strawberries in a jar do they last longer? Does Pepsi make worms come out of pork? Are there parasites in pork? How to best to make hard sugar numbers for on top of a cake and more.

Of course Dave will get to taste test a recipe or two.

    I love how your videos are so informative and really fun to watch! It’s nice to have a YouTuber who provides educational, family-friendly videos while still being fun and very real. Can’t wait to get your book and try to be a pastry chef in my own kitchen 🙂

    Dear Ann,
    I am a big fan from the other side of the world, Austria, and love your videos. I just preordered the book from Amazon Germany and I’m sooo looking forward to get it! Especially your chocolate recipes helped me so much with getting presents for birthdays and christmas (when stores are closed making presents yourself is advised and so much more personal!) during lockdown and I’m so excited to try some new ones from the book. The next goal is macarons, looking forward to try them.

    All the best from the snowy alps!

    I discovered your channel this past year and it quickly became my favorite thing to watch on YouTube. I love how you educate people not only on the dangers of certain videos, but also on how to do the topics safely and effectively. I literally screamed out loud when I heard that you were releasing a cookbook and immediately told my fiance about it. I can’t wait for it to arrive and start in on your recipes. Thank you for contributing such wonderful content to the platform, and thanks to Dave for always being willing to try your concoctions. That’s a star husband, right there!

    My husband preordered the book for me because I am in love with how you educate with regards to the science behind cooking while also tackling topics like youtube and other tech algorithms. I proudly have your fridge magnet in the center of my fridge as it reminds me about the importance of not feeling like a failure because cooking like science is about trial and error. You have such a positivity about you and I hope to learn how to be more like that too!

    I just wanted to say thank you Ann. I discovered your channel during the pandemic and have been showing your videos to my students to demonstrate how they can apply critical thinking skills. I can’t wait until your next debunking video comes out and I can’t wait to try out the desserts from your new cookbook!

    My husband pre-ordered the book for me because he’s the one with the Prime account, does he have to be the one to enter the contest on my behalf or can I enter it with the order code he got?

    Hello! My mom (Cyndi) and myself (Trevor) watch your debunk videos alot and then we would also watch your other content and we just absolutly love you and your family ! We see so many things we can relate to in the jokes and love you share with the world and just wanted to say we enjoy your hard work and determination!
    We’ve had alot of time together in hospitals since I was 12 and diagnosed with kidney failure and most that time was spent watching cooking shows and food network dreaming of better food then hospital menu items. We got pretty good at making food delicious from all that too, but my main point in mentioning that was to say we’ve seen alot of the shows that teach or show how to make food and your channel has so much more heart and chemistry so keep up the great works!

    • Should we be getting a confirmation email?

    The site keeps telling me to enter a valid email address to enter the raffle but I did and I am not sure if it took my entry. Either way, I am so excited to get the cookbook.

    I haven’t been watching your videos recently because I’m so busy lately but I just watched your most recent video today and pre-ordered your book as soon as you mentioned it!!! I’m so excited! I’ve been watching your videos since I was 11 or 12 (like 8 or 9 years ago!) and I’ve made so many of your recipes and have learned so much about baking because of you. Congratulations on the book, I can’t wait until its release 🙂
