And one place some are turning to is the social media platform TikTok where there are more than 15 billion food posts.

Fans say TikTok’s short-video format is a good way to see if a recipe is one you want to make.

There’s a lot of variety.

You can see how to perfect a hamburger or ferment kimchee or make old-fashioned Japanese candy or fry frog legs.

Seattle student Camden Allard has made several recipes from TikTok including one that went viral for feta tomato pasta.
