Dunno about stunning, but very relaxing.

And now I want some chowdah.

/and happy to hear the little dog bark again at the end.

Suddenly, adding a couple tablespoons of hoisin sauce to my instant ramen seems pretty lame.

Um, the preferred term is "Chinaman," dude.

I have no idea what was going on, but it looked way harder than adding a can of water to a can of mystery ingredients and salt and heating.

Being connected to the food sources that actually comprise your meal, and also being intimately involved in the preparation thereof, using traditional methods that emphasize those connections, makes the resulting meal much more nourishing, both physically and emotionally.

Or something like that.

And since it was in winter, it showed her using mostly preserved food. She was rehydrating a lot of dried materials. I also think it was interesting how so much meat was used to make the broth. I would eat the hell out of that soup.

silvervial: dried materials


Wonder what those dark spiky things are?  They look kind of rubbery when they were served.. Some sort of bizarro fungus?

I'm guessing rehydrated sea creature of some sort.  Maybe sea cucumber?

That video is very confusing when you misread the headline and are expecting soap.

Better than me adding Taco Bell mild sauce

Neat. Took 2 days, though.

Yeah, this just confirms that Hot Pockets are WAAAAY better since they are ready for consumption in minutes.

Excellent cleaver work.

There really is something dare I say moving about watching a practiced hand at work.  There's a guy who regularly cleans the windows at the office where I work. His ability to soak and squeegee so completely while not letting anything get on the carpet is astounding.  Just one continuous swipe on and another off.  Window washing may not be a glamorous job, but dammit there was no way he was going to half-ass it.

Google Translate is really messed up. Or at least I hope it is--the first line of text under the video, it translates to:

Greedy cats eat the hearts of their love, a Tao Tan mix vaginal - Buddha jumping wall

It's days like this that I'm soooo happy I live in DC.

I really do love some nice cleavage.

Plus that cleaver was super-cool! Loved how it became a spatula.

I don't know about the rest of the translation but
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddha_​J​umps_Over_the_Wall
is the name of the dish, so called because its meaty delishiousness will make vegetarian Buddhist monks sneak out of their monastery to eat some.

A typical recipe requires many ingredients including quail eggs, bamboo shoots, scallops, sea cucumber, abalone, shark fin, fish maw, chicken, Jinhua ham, pork tendon, ginseng, mushrooms, and taro. Some recipes require up to thirty main ingredients and twelve condiments.[2][7]

I hate cooking. The longer a food takes to prepare, the more irritated I become. At some point the ratio of consumption time to preparation time becomes such that I declare it not worth the effort. There's always a quicker option that tastes just as good.

I also do not get the popularity of the cooking shows that seem to have taken over the tv. The joy of food lies in it being eaten, if I don't get to eat it, there is no fun. Watching people cook is like watching people vacuum the house, wash the floor, or sort the laundry, and you don't see shows about those chores, so why cooking?

/at least the video in the link had pretty scenery

Ancient cooking methods? You mean like boiling and frying? I understand that in the age of the microwave that these ways of heating something may seem outdated but really?

Creating dishes that stimulate all your senses takes a lot of skill.  It's an art, not a chore.

Heating up a bucket of nutrient paste in a microwave is a chore/task, and uninteresting, as is the end result of your efforts, but hey, enjoy it, and that leaves more good food for the rest of us!

You are correct. Those things are all over the reefs of the Pacific and pretty commonly available dehydrated in Asian markets in the US. Taste like ass.

That's one heck of a soup.

Still think it qualifies as a chore if you'd rather not be doing it.

That's why you have to order the soup for your table in advance at Kirin Court in Richardson. Like, a couple days in advance.

Ms Yeah doesn't need advanced notice.

something tells me that the soup tastes like boiled ass.  far too many big, weird, chunky ingredients.  I mean...  ok, whatever, but that really didn't look like "flavor" was a concern.
