The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 458
Chapter 447 .Inspiration for transformation
During the Spring Festival, some people spend it in the gathering of relatives and friends, some spend it under the influence of Chinese delicacies, and some spend it in the roar of the Exterminating Dragon.
“China on the Bite of the Tongue” broadcast for seven days, from the gift of nature to the story of staple food, on the third day of the new year, the theme tonight is “inspiration of transformation”.
Tom Granger, a well-known gourmet video producer at the overseas station of Chuyin Video Network, opened the Chuyin Video Network on time at 12 noon to watch “China on the Bite of the Tongue”.
Tom is a native of the English Kingdom. The dishes of the English Kingdom have always been called dark dishes. Many of the videos that Tom uploaded on the overseas version of Hatsune Video Network are also tasting and cooking of dark dishes, such as the most classic starry sky pie, haggis, eel Dong, etc., from time to time, I also order some unpacking videos of canned herring, which is very popular with the audience.
He is very interested in Chinese food, not only the classic foods such as roast duck and Xiaolongbao, but also exotic foods such as snail noodles, stinky tofu, soy juice, preserved eggs, etc. Tom is also passionate about.
Tom once asked a friend who went to China to bring snail noodles and tried it during the live broadcast, but the taste directly caused him to vomit out by running to the toilet, and even vomiting cleanly during the supper yesterday.
But there is no way, the snail noodles cooked by myself, I have to pinch my nose and eat it.
Tom picked up snail noodles with a fork and stuffed it into his mouth like pasta.
In an instant, the sour taste of sour bamboo shoots, chili oil, and capers rushed into Tom’s mouth. All the flavors penetrated into the translucent vermicelli. To Tom, it was like detonating one in his mouth. A huge taste bomb.
The taste building built by Tom for more than 20 years collapsed in an instant.
Because it was a live broadcast, Tom’s distorted expression also affected the audience and made them empathize. Many people wailed in front of the screen.
But it’s amazing. About thirty seconds later, when Tom swallowed the snail noodles containing the soup and fans, the first sentence he blurted out turned out to be—
Tom himself didn’t quite believe in his tongue, but after the disgusting taste at the beginning, the snail noodles really made the word delicious appear in his mind.
The audience looked very surprised, and there were constant comments, such as “Do you believe that an Englishman said it is delicious? He grew up eating starry pie” and wanted to trick me into buying snail noodles. I won’t be fooled. “This guy is a guy who can eat a whole can of herring without changing his face. I don’t believe even one word of his!” Such comments came and went one after another.
Of course, that bowl of snail noodles was finally eaten by Tom. As for the fact that his kitchen has been ventilated for a month, it is another story.
He finished watching the title of “China on the Bite of the Tongue” and saw the subtitle of this episode, “Inspiration for Transformation”.
Although the documentary is in Chinese, it is also accompanied by English subtitles. Tom saw it smoothly.
At the beginning of this episode, the tofu in the bamboo plaque was placed on the rooftop. Tofu is a unique ingredient of China. Tom’s favorite to eat in Chinatown is Mapo tofu, but now the tofu on the screen obviously agrees with him. Knowing is not the same.
The dry, hard, dark-brown skin looked as if it was moldy, making Tom frowned slightly.
Next, the documentary shows how this special tofu is eaten.
On the grill of the charcoal brazier, this piece of small tofu expands when heated, just like popcorn. You can break it apart, dip it in a little seasoning, and serve it in your mouth. It is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Tom was not able to accept this kind of food at first. Fermented things always have some special flavors, such as sour bamboo shoots, and canned herring. But watching the documentary, people put it in the mouth one by one, Tom suddenly Some want to eat.
Next is the process of making tofu. Tom has seen the information, but this is the first time I have seen such a detailed image. It is hard to believe that the soybeans will turn into such a white and tender jelly, and the taste will become delicate and soft. The original appearance is completely different.
The next scene left Tom stunned. He saw a chef quickly cut a piece of tofu with a knife and cut it into something like mud, but when he plated it up with a knife and put it in the water, he found that the tofu had become extremely fine. Very fine tofu shreds, and basically not broken.
Tom couldn’t help but admire.
In Western food, knife skills are also a part. Western food chefs are good at using various knives to perform operations, such as classic ham slices.
However, the chef in Chinese food can only use a kitchen knife to complete the work that Western food can only be done with more than a dozen kitchen knives. It is really amazing.
In addition to ordinary tofu, there are milk tofu made from goat milk, edamame tofu covered with white hair after fermentation, and vegetarian dishes made from tofu and various vegetarian dishes. Eye-opener.
The following sauced duck, miso, and sauerkraut are also Chinese delicacies that Tom can’t touch in his daily life.
All the food ingredients in this episode are what Tom can see in the market on weekdays, but through a special transformation, it has become a style he has never seen before.
This transformation method is quite similar to the molecular cuisine in some modern western restaurants , but it has been passed down for hundreds or even thousands of years.
By comparison, most of what Tom usually eats are simply processed products, which can be made with a microwave oven, which is too crude and barren.
“…All these imaginative transformations, the flavor and the sublimation of nutrition they create are breathtaking, and form a part called culture, which can be passed on.”
At this time, this episode has just reached the end, the narration is spoken, and the background music has a long charm.
After watching the episode, Tom was still full of thoughts. At the same time, he suddenly had some inspiration and thoughts in his heart.
“I can buy all these materials, can I learn how to make tofu by myself?”
Soybeans and plaster are common materials. Tom also knows some friends in Chinese restaurants in Chinatown and learns from them. Maybe he can make tofu himself.
This can be used as the material for the first video. I believe that Tom’s fans have seen “China on the Bite of the Tongue”, and they will definitely be very interested in the tofu production in it.
Thinking of this, Tom immediately packed up his things, put on his clothes, and prepared to go shopping at the market.
Walking out the door, the winter in London is still bleak, but Tom is like a child, jumping and jumping into the distance.
