    Are you looking for a whole series, almost like an online course, or just single dish instructional videos?

    YouTube has tons of instructional cooking videos from around the world of varying quality, some really terrific.

    <http://dailyvideorecipes.com/> also has tons of recipe videos.

    Eric Ripert has a podcast that's shown on Hulu called 'Avec Eric'. He does a very simple but elegant recipe at the end of each one that sort of sums up the theme of the show.

    Maangchi is a Korean food blogger who has very good instructional videos on her site.

      A whole series, or specifically a series focused on dessert/pastries/baking

        Have you looked at these:
        http://astore.amazon.co.uk/rivecott-2...
        http://courses.rivercottage.net/

        I like the philosophy ad the food.

        You might be looking for something a little more sophisticated than this, but King Arthur's Flour has a range of basic baking technique video classes. <http://www.kingarthurflour.com/baking...>. And so does Keiko's Cakes: <http://keikos-cake.com/shop/>, although I think Keiko's requires some payment for video downloads. Best of luck, Ninrn

          If you are looking for a pay site Rouxbe seems like it might be worth paying for, but I don't know how much they charge. Someone posted this sample lesson from their site, and I thought it was very informative. I don't know how much there is about pastry though.
