If you enjoy cooking as much as eating food, then you will love the new live-streaming platform called Nom. This is launched by YouTube’s co-founder, Steve Chan (Nom’s CTO), for gourmands, home cooks, professional chefs and anyone interested in the culinary arts to share their kitchen adventures in real-time.
The idea of Nom is to encourage users to run their own live cooking shows and food adventures around the world. Also, the viewers can interact with the streamers using reaction buttons or through delay-free-two-way chat to ask about questions and tips on the dish that they want to create, which is something you can’t do when you’re just watching recorded tutorials or reading recipes.
Similar to YouTube, Nom lets its users broadcast their food escapades from their desktops or iOS device. It lets you create your own channel where you can air yourself in a matter of seconds or create static posts with pictures, links and text.
And if you want your show to be more interesting for your audience, you can also add recorded video, links and GIFs to your live-streams. That, along with an upcoming feature to allow you to use multiple cameras for your broadcast, should help you create your own mini cooking show right in the comfort of your own home.
What’s great about Nom is that it’s not only for professional chefs. If you’re a foodie who loves to create simple recipes, then this is the perfect platform for you. If you love traveling and trying exotic food, then you can share your experiences with Nom. And, if you’re the type of person who doesn’t really have time to create dishes, then you can still enjoy watching Nom live-streams while munching on a homemade pizza. Nom is for everyone!
"Collaboration is key for us at Nom," said Vijay Karunamurthy, Co-Founder and CEO of Nom. "We worked with an incredible group of chefs, makers, and creators to build the site and app they would want to reach an audience live. Now any creative team can produce their own show. We're seeing people use Nom for coffee tastings, cooking demos, and live coverage of pop-up experiences.”
