Aimless Who?

The Aimless Cook is an online show following the culinary adventures of me, Jay del Corro. Explore and try food from all over the world with me as I share delicious and often exotic flavours with you. From granny’s recipe box to the street stall in Vietnam, there’s a universe of tastes and experiences and it’s all right here in my kitchen!

Food is a wonderful thing. It gives us life, brings people together and creates memories. Best of all, it’s an adventure I want to share with you.

    Hi jay! Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes specially the korean and the japanese dishes. Of all the cooking show I’ve watched, I love The Aimless Cook the most! I’ve already downloaded 44 episodes in my ipod and is looking forward for more! Im always excited to watch these videos in my vacant time at work and is greatly inspired to push through culinary.

    Came across your you-tube video on how to make takoyaki, while looking for instructions on how to use this new appliance I just purchased!!! Having just moved to Japan, I am anxious to continue my interest in cooking to include the wonderful dishes unique to this beautiful country, although I doubt I will use the octopus…. I am assuming it can be made with cooked chicken? The cheese variation sounds delicious, as well. I found your video extremely helpful, and especially appreciate the English listing of ingredients and instruction, and the thorough step by step instruction!! I am looking forward to studying all your information here at the aimless cook, as well as, watching the you-tube videos. Just wanted to say thank you; your video makes it a little less intimidating than it might otherwise be!

    I love your channel! I’m actually having an Aimless Cook marathon on my WiiU!! :)

  5. Not enough information, Jay! What city are you in? Your Kalua pork video said you were in Canada and I was excited to hear that! Where? Great videos!

    • Calgary is where I hang my hat. Nice to meet you!

        Hi Jay! Thank you so much for your recipes! I just moved to Edmonton (Deadmonton as my friends call it) and since you’re close-ish to it, have you been to here and found any good recommendations for food? Thanks a bunch!

        • Depends on what you like. My friend owns a nice Ramen/Sushi joint called Nomiya that I like. There’s also great tacos at Tres Carnales. I also like the Greek fare at Koutouki. There’s also great places like MRKT and Corso 32. Have fun!

    I just saw your video on Steamed Bao. Looks delicious. My question is this, would the recipe work out if I used same quantity of gluten free all purpose flour as I am celiac

    • Lily says:

      Hi Renee, you’re best to use medium flour (gluten-free) to substitute and substitute by weight not by cups :) hope this helps .

    Hi Jay.. I just wanted to say, I sat and watched your Thai dishes on Roku today. I have an Aunt who is Thai and have always wished that she would have taught me some of her dishes. The only thing that she taught me to make was sumtum. Thai food is my favorite food. I have made your Laarb Gai,and it was a hit. Keep on cooking.. enjoy your show.

  9. Hi! I’ve been following your site for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from New Caney Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the good job!

    stumbled on your podcast on Roku, fantastic!

    I’m in Hawaii for a couple of weeks (working) and went by a local joint to have lau lau today. So it got me thinking how to make it. I found your video on YouTube — I like the way you explain things in easy terms and show just what to do.

    Another commenter, Mo, mentioned you are on Roku? How can I find you there?
