      How did "American" Chinese food come to be? It DOES seem so different. But, every Chinese buffet or restaurant I've been to is owned and run by.........people from China. What gives?

    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

    Ok that flopping fish did for me I'm not going to eat fish too much anymore because I watched another show in the fish was filleting in half and it started jumping and it didn't stop so I don't know what's going on with the fish not dying like it's supposed to so you can cook it and eat it can you imagine if you had a sister was frozen in the freezer and you took it off and it throw it out and it started flopping okay I'm going to watch the rest of the video

  • Tylonfoxx

    When the fish is so fresh it literally jumps out of the bowl, you know it's good ;)
    but really, really a waste not to eat the pork bones, it just tastes so good after being infused with all the different tastes of the broth and it gets really nice and tender.
    I've heard a (an albeit Japanese) saying that a good soup (or ramen) keeps a man well fed for three days. On day one, you eat the pork bone meat on a bed of rice with some steamed veggies. On day 2 you eat the soup or ramen, on day 3 you eat the rest (and the best), because (proper) Asian food is nice and filling in that feel-good way :D
    But, in the end, there's nothing that warms the heart more than seeing a child go head over heels for a good bite of one's cooking. That's where you know it's really good :)

    That is super delicious. So simple and tasty looking. Surprised me no rice ! Eating like this youll never get fat and will be very healthy. Beats the hell out of mc donalds and barbeque loaded with sugary sauces. Your little girl is so cute. Wants everything you eat. My only " but in " advice : keep her away from the sugary stuff.
