What a REAL Chinese Home Cooked Meal in China Looks Like

  • Published on Oct 28, 2017
  • Hey Laowinners!
    The Patreons have voted and you guys wanted to see what an average, normal, everyday meal looks like in China. Chinese food is diverse, so we are covering Cantonese food today. We head to the wet market and buy all of our fresh Chinese ingredients, and head home to cook a normal Chinese meal. Vivi did her best!

    I think washing the rice, what it really does is remove excess starch from it before cooking. It turns out better the more you wash it. I know that Sushi rice is washed 2 or 3 times before it’s cooked. You can see the starch start to separate from the rice when the water turns a light cloudy white color. Ideally you could rinse and stir rice with your hand until the water runs clear.

    • Rockin’ Pixels

      In all of the asian cooking stuff I’ve watched here on youtube they always recommend washing the rice before cooking. Even professional chefs. Everyone stands by it turning out better that way.

    This is similar to my Taiwanese wife's cooking (we live in US). She uses an Instapot instead of a clay pot, and she makes sure to eat the meat off the pork bone, but otherwise - very similar. Always a lot of vegetables.

    YEP that's an authentic Chinese home cook meal. Only thing missing is SIC SAN GO (Eat fruits) after the meal :)

    I could not go to China as I don’t like the look of any of real Chinese food. I don’t eat pork, I have a sweet tooth, I need to have coffee available near me, I hate Soya milk and like a lot of fresh food, clean water, no pesticides that aren’t safe to consume, like real chocolate not fake cheap varieties, hate tripe don’t want to eat testifickes cats dogs . I would starve there. It’s like a ghost town of all my food

    A friend steamed fish a lot (freshly caught trout and things from local rivers and lakes), using a bamboo steamer, but he always steamed the fish outside the house because it would make the kitchen reek of fish.

    Nice video. I'm from Brazil and I've been watching your videos for some time now and I'm curious about how chinese people season their food.
    Specially about the rice, cause brazilians eat it literally every day, like chinese people do. Here in Brazil we fry chopped garlic (or onions) in oil. After they're golden we pour hot water, season it with salt, put in the rice and let everything cook together.

    This is really fabulous because it is very intimate and real! Something else that is wonderful is getting the translation on what the locals are saying. In most cooking, travel shows, you never get to hear what the people are saying and it makes them seem dumb in a way, because they are silent and don't say anything. I loved hearing how the lady was worried about you filming her killing the fish. It shows how much we are alike, and not so different. It is also marvelous to see what you really eat and how you cook it. Love it!

    My mother is a 95 year old Italian. Her parents came over from the old country. She used to hold down a chicken while her mom killed it. Turn they'd watch it run around with its head cut off. (Nerves still firing. ) that's where the saying comes from!

    When you cook vegetables and meat for that long, it does extract all the flavor and nutrients. Same with western stock making! It’s science. You’re just eating over cooked and flavorless meat/and veggie (aromatics) at this point. I’m a Chinese American chef in the USA
