Food videos have always been widely approved as satisfying to watch. Cooking enthusiasts around the world who try to dabble in the content creating world, make sure that the food they are cooking looks soothing and satisfying. After the huge wave of ASMR trend of 2010, food vloggers have started combining their recipes videos with ASMR style video making. These video creators started getting creative and gave birth to huge trends emerging from their own aesthetic.
Here is a list of 5 cooking accounts on TikTok you need to follow for the love of so-called food “ASMRists.”
If you are on TikTok you have either seen or heard of the salmon rice bowl recipe. Emily Mariko is a San Francisco Bay Area-based lifestyle creator. She has been a creator on YouTube for a while before she gained recognition on TikTok as the “salmon rice bowl girl.” Her videos are specifically satisfying because she never seems to overdo it. Her style is limited to tidiness and a clean aesthetic. In her brightly lit kitchen, Mariko not only makes videos of her meal prep but also quick recipes and footage of her cleaning the kitchen. She is certainly the ultimate creator to go to for indoor ASMR cooking sounds and clips. With a whopping follower count of 6 million, her videos get 7-8 million views on TikTok.
Miniature Cooking ASMR
This one is solely for ASMR lovers. This Thailand-based cooking account soothes the lovers of tiny kitchen ASMR videos. Based on the Japanese kawaii aesthetic, cooking videos like these gained a lot of popularity. There certainly has to be a psychological explanation for watching miniature cooking videos and loving them. There is something about escaping the real world of cooking and diving into the cuteness of miniature kitchen magic.
