Food media to consume while you stay at home

I wanted to do a different post today and share with all of you different food media that you can watch, listen or learn while you are staying at home. This post is going to be most likely very long but I made sure I divided each type of media in big categories so that you can search through it much fast. So here, the very long-long-long list of food media that you can consume at home!

I will be sharing media in three languages: french, spanish and english, voilà, enjoy your trilingual trip down this list!
