    The one motto I will always remember from my childhood is "If Yan can cook, so can you!". The man is a legend.
  • @Rokakaka
    Yan cooking wasn't the only good thing about him, his personality and how entertaining he is as well
  • @sethsegal8333
    It's amazing that this chef still has his PBS show today at age 74! He's never stopped cooking and inspiring people and that's truly admirable and remarkable. Mad respect
  • @JKat316
    Little did we know, nearly 40 years ago, Martin Yan was going to reveal what Uncle Rogers ex- wife was going to look like.
  • @jhpak
    Yan didn't cook to show off his skills, he cooked to inspire us. A legend
  • @viktorcheng2061
    Martin Yan introduced the world that Chinese food wasn’t just fried rice and chow mein. Martin Yan is a legend and the only person on tv with an Asian face in the 80’s and 90’s.

    Saturday mornings, after cartoons were done, PBS time and it was Martin Yan, Justin Wilson, and Julia Child exposing my tiny rural Indiana brain to culture and flavor. His skill with a knife and his positive, affirming voice were mesmerizing. That szying "If Yan can cook, you can too!" Was burned into my brain and inspired me to try tasting and cooking food from cultures I had no experience with. It led to a lifelong love of cooking and an openness to new things that would lead me out of my little rural town and into a much wider world. Legend almost seems to humble.

    We need a Yan/Roger collab more than ever... I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed this show growing up.
  • I was lucky enough to meet and interview Mr. Yan back in the 2000s. He's a friend's Uncle (really) and he was gracious enough to let us bother him for a couple of hours. Mr. Yan was an incredible guy - nice, knowledgeable, and a force of nature. I was really impressed at his breadth of knowledge - from production, to business, to cooking. One of the highlights of my career.
  • Uncle Roger really went from (sort of) generic youtube react content to a serious food chanel for homecooks (with a laugh) and actually giving great advise about asian cooking. I think you motivated a lot of people (like me) to cook asian food as correct as possible. I even got a rice cooker. I loved the video you did with guga and josh, and you actually kept up compared to josh his cooking. Great direction this channel is heading towards.

    The best thing I heard of Martin Yan is that he was awarded the James Beard Life time achievement award in 2022. Many Americans have forgotten about the legend but his peers have not.
  • @eve.nguyen
    As a former Vietnamese kid, his show was such a hit here. We barely understand English back then but we all known the phrase "Yan can cook". I dont even remember the content now but still remember his chopping
  • Was born in 1971. Martin Yan is awesome and a life saver. Moved to Alaska in 1982, was one of the few shows that we got. When i joined the Army in 1989, used to watch his show when stationed in Korea. He fostered an enjoyment in cooking and learning about dishes that has helped me to this day. Awesome episode, he is one of the OGs.
  • @jessenorris1672
    Martin Yan was the inspiration for me becoming a chef, such an amazing man and chef. I remember the episode after his son was born they carried him on to the set in a giant wok so Martin could introduce him to the world.
  • @ALEXANDERBELL0
    I love how Nigel casually insults the Chinese government with the credit score and Taiwan stab 😂 such an underrated move!
  • @AN38385
    Martin Yan was the man who introduced me to cooking and enjoying great food. I remember buying his book and trying as many recipes as I could. The man is a legend and great entertainer.
  • @mikukumiku
    OMG, I grew up watching Martin Yan! Thank you so much for this Uncle Roger! Because of Yan can cook, I always found it weird that TV chefs/cooks never shared their food with the audience after the show, haha!
  • @t0mlee11
    I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Martin Yan when I was helping teach at a high school last year. He's still just as witty and charismatic as he has always been. He even took a picture with me. Nice guy, he was showing a variety of students how to make various dishes and adding a bit of his own pizazz to it.
  • @jimhayes316
    When I was young all the cooking shows were on PBS. It was Julia Child, Galloping Gourmet and Yan Can Cook. Martin was my favorite. I was fascinated by how great he chopped and how funny he was. 25 years later I got to assist Martin for a whole day of cooking demos, and even got to show him how I taught myself how to chop like him with a Chinese cleaver. He gifted me a signature cleaver and I got an autographed Martin Yan cookbook and lots of pics. One of the best days of my cooking career
  • @figmo397
    I've had the pleasure of watching Martin Yan cook in person. He's even more awesome in person! He's also hilarious. It's almost like watching a comedy team cook where his "partner" is the food. If you want to see something REALLY hilarious, dig up the episode of "Emerald Live" where Emeril cooks alongside Martin Yan. Yan constantly makes fun of Emeril's (lack of) technique through the whole show.
