When I watched Chef Lin Shuwei’s live broadcast of Sichuan cuisine in the evening, I found that the chef’s cooking process seemed to be no different from that of ordinary people, and there was no big difference in the choice of ingredients. To say that there is a difference, it is reflected in some details. For example, when making twice-cooked pork, the neck of the garlic sprouts is cooked and the roots are cooked first. When making Mapo tofu, you must choose old tofu, and you must thicken it three times. , When making Kung Pao Chicken, be sure to fry it quickly on high heat to ensure that the pan is not sticky. If you think about it for a moment, whether cooking is delicious or not seems to be closely related to these details. From your life experience, what details do you think you can tell the level of a person’s cooking skills?
I don’t know much about cooking, so I can only answer questions from the side. The person I have personally met with the highest cooking skills is a roommate of mine. We lived together for two years. I personally think that the key to a person’s cooking skills is whether he really loves cooking. Since I was little, I have seen too many people cook, and I have cooked many meals myself. Some people cook, they have to do it to feed themselves or their family. Some people cook because they like food, and they like to make delicious food, not the cooking itself. Some people cook for work, or want to do this job, be a chef to open a restaurant, or want to be an online celebrity, and be a host of ups. Some people cook simply because of their specialty. He can cook for various reasons and has good craftsmanship, so he likes to give Others cook and eat, listen to others praise him for his good craftsmanship, and receive compliments. Only my roommate is the first person I have ever met who simply likes cooking. His attitude towards cooking is more like an artist’s attitude towards creating artworks. My roommate has cooked beef with sauce. Go to the supermarket to choose the best beef, mix various seasonings, use a stopwatch to calculate the time for boiling and cooling the beef, and finally freeze it in the refrigerator for several days to cool. The moment the finished product was taken out, the beef was crystal clear, as if brown marble mixed with brown crystal. He shared with me, I said it was delicious, and he said it was okay, it just made the taste he wanted. Write a summary, take photos, keep files, and end. He did not post to Moments, did not show off to anyone, and never cooked this dish again. It is enough to complete a work with heart and enjoy the joy of success. My roommate has cooked three lobsters. My mother came to the United States to see me. To entertain my mother, I went to the supermarket and bought three large lobsters (with my roommate). I wanted to bake it, and my roommate said that he could use some complicated techniques to deal with such a large and fresh and good ingredient, and it could be regarded as a reward for his eating my lobster meal. I agreed. Eat three, namely steamed lobster, baked lobster, and fried lobster balls. Needless to say, the steps of steaming lobster are the most important to keep the original flavor. My roommate still uses hand-made ingredients, and a stopwatch is used for timing. Baked lobster is a Western-style recipe. My roommate rarely cooks Western food. This time I made some preparations specially for me. I went to the supermarket to buy the most suitable cheese brand and strictly followed the video instruction of the Western food chef. Deep-fried lobster balls are considered a luxury. The largest lobster only makes three lobster balls, one for each person and one bite. For these three shrimp balls, he took care of them for a long time. In the evening, three lobsters were served, and my mother and I were shocked. Anyhow, we are also people who have met the world, and we are still impressed by the craftsmanship of my roommate. In the first year of the Mid-Autumn Festival, my roommate made mooncakes by himself. Buy pork and chicken, and fry lard and chicken yourself. Buy red beans and lotus seeds, and make your own red bean paste and lotus paste. Buy different varieties of flour, prepare the flour you need, and make the cake crust for moon cakes. At that time, he went home early every day, and the kitchen was busy until late. It took about a week and the mooncakes were finally completed, no more than six, each of which was small and lovely and delicious. I, a person who had only bought mooncakes since I was a child, praised it, but it’s a pity. The roommate was very satisfied with the results and said that he got the taste he wanted. In the second year of the Mid-Autumn Festival, my roommate wanted to chase a girl, after much deliberation, she decided to give her mooncakes made by herself. So repeat the above steps, but this time he added the jam he made to make a modern fruit-flavored mooncake. The girl was very moved and agreed to him. So he won’t be my roommate next year. I have never eaten his food again.
