Entertainment World: The Wild God of Gourmet - Chapter 44
Someone said before, if you wanted to know how skillful a chef was, you could tell from his way of stir-frying.
This statement might be one-sided but you could measure the basic skill of the cook. Apparently, this statement could be proven by Chen B-Dog.
Looking the way he flipped the ingredients in the pot, it was like doing acrobatics.
The ingredients in the pot were flipped up and down and the fire was sent into the little black pot again and again. The whole scene was full of excitement. If there was an audience at the scene, they would burst into thunderous applause.
After frying for almost two minutes, it was ready to be served.
Under the firelight, even though there was not much of seasoning, pepper, and cooking wine, the Braised Rabbit with Brown Sauce was presented with flaming luster. If you noticed it clearly, it looked like the oil was attaching to the skin and the meat texture and color were just perfect. Furthermore, the dish was interspersed with colorful mushrooms and white rootstock blocks as well as precious ginseng slices and ginseng roots. Besides that, eating the dish under the environment of hot steaming air and white snow was making people slobber over the food.
He used the knife to probe the fire and took out two cooked potatoes.
The main course was ready as well. He tore the outer charred skin and the audience could see clearly the hot steaming yellow flesh now. Together with the rich scent of the rabbit meat, the audience could not help staring at it.
Chen B-Dog smiled to the camera and said, “The dishes look good. The cold wind is blowing, the bonfire is crackling and the snow is coming down. It seems like the fragrance of the Braised Rabbit with Brown Sauce is whispering and is stimulating my nose. I can’t wait anymore… Let’s eat.”
Logically, if a man was eating in the wild, he should be eating in a rough and boorish manner. However, Chen B-Dog was eating in a leisurely manner. He ate at a moderate speed, neither too fast nor too slow. Every bite made it seemed like he was enjoying the taste of the cuisine deeply and attentively. He looked very elegant.
He definitely did not look like a depressed gourmet in the wild. Instead, he looked like a traveling aristocrat. In fact, looking at his expressive face and the way he ate, it made people’s stomach rolling up and down.
Unfortunately, millions of audience could only watch the screen. They could not even smell it.
Hence, even though the live broadcast was still new, his favorite section had already been ranked by the audience as the most annoying section.
Chen B-Dog was eating mouthful by mouthful and commented, “Even though there is not too much of seasoning, this dish has completely invaded my taste buds. Especially the attractive ginseng which has been reused for several times is now completely inside my stomach. I feel full of happiness. At this moment, I cannot think of any other cuisine that I have eaten before. This is certainly not self-boasting. If there is a chance, I have to find a diner to try the taste to prove I am not lying.”
With the torturous feeling, the audience watched him finishing his dinner. Meanwhile, the live broadcast room was flooded with the pop-up comments of “lunch or dinner dates”.
“It is so torturous to see Lord B-Dog eating.”, “This is the most annoying section. Nothing worse than this.”, “Anyone interested to have a meal near Beijing Dashilan?”, “Anyone at Dongbei ice city wants to eat barbecue with me? After that, we can go for a Karaoke session. If you are a man, then go Dutch. If you are a woman, then free of charge.”
Chen B-Dog licked his lip and hung the water bottle on the fire to boil it. He said, “Making a pot of after-meal-tea and I am happy as an immortal.”
“So friends, it is getting late. It’s time to rest.”
“I am destined not to sleep tight tonight. I need to check the tiger cubs every two hours and the fire cannot be extinguished. This is to ensure they will not die in the middle of the night due to freezing. Uhm, what? Sing a song? Still wanting me to sing?”
The pop-up comments that were still talking about meal gathering just now had changed to the comments of “Sing a song” that flooded the whole screen in an instant.
Chen B-Dog had no choice and said, “All right, I will sing a song. To the friends who are watching the live broadcast on the bed, it is time to sleep while listening to the song.”
Looking at the sleeping little cubs, he was struck with sudden inspiration. He smiled and sang, “Two tigers, two tigers; running quick, running quick; one does not have an ear, one does not have an eye; that is so strange, that is so strange…” He just started singing and could not help laughing, “It is so pitiful. Who wrote that nursery song? Why did he write about tigers like that?”
After the joke, he coughed dryly and said, “All right, no more joking. It is pretty late now. I will sing the song ‘An Ordinary Path’ then we shall end tonight’s live broadcast. This song has been uploaded to Music Cloud. If you like it, you can download it.”
The familiar music was played, Chen B-Dog immersed himself in the song and seriously presented his favorite song “An Ordinary Path”. “Those lingering about on the road, do you want to go? Over the rivers and mountains, going through the thousands of people; everything I used to own, now it is gone like the smoke.” The simple lyrics, the soulful melody, and singing under this atmosphere, were giving off the feeling of telling his own story.
He sang too passionately and made the audience asking for more. They requested him to sing repeatedly for two times and felt it wasn’t enough. They even asked him to sing the third time. They were really taking him as a jukebox.
However, Chen B-Dog did not want to sing anymore. He said, “At last, let’s visit a room and I will go offline. Tomorrow morning 7am, broadcast will start on time.”
He talked and clicked on the web page. Browsing the game zone, he saw Big Nose Nuofeng playing a ranked game. B-Dog’s rising probably affected him. The popularity of this former LOL world champion team leader was pretty good, but it was only around a million points.
Chen B-Dog had not signed the contract so he could not afford to give ten Buddha Jumps over the Wall. He could only send a Buddha Jumps over the wall as the return present.
Besides, he also sent the return presents to those anchors who had presented him Buddha Jumps over the Wall.
At last, he came to the room of a little beauty. Exactly, it was Zhou B-Ke.
There were more than 200 thousands of people listening to her singing in the room. Although it was not as good as her previous popularity at Shark TV, but it reflected the loyalty of these followers. Along with the room visit of Chen B-Dog, the live broadcast room immediately popped out the comments of “B-Dog army is coming to propose marriage”. The popularity rose at top speed.
Zhou B-Ke was singing and she was shocked. After checking the pop-up comments, she smiled and said, “Welcome, B-Dog’s army. What song does Lord B-Dog want to hear?”
Chen B-Dog said nothing and his fellow friends had helped him to make the decision. “An Ordinary Path” became the one and only pop-up comment.
Zhou B-Ke smiled and said, “Okay. I like “An Ordinary Path” too. There are many people want to hear this song last night. So I have learned to sing it this morning. Lord B-Dog, if I don’t perform it well, please give me some advice.”
Chen B-Dog was listening to her singing. At the same time, he was tidying up the bed and laid the wolf skin on the ground. He could sense the singing skill of B-Ke but it was not too professional. Probably it was because she was singing live, so she did not have much emotion. The desolation feeling could not be felt from her singing. B-Dog simply rewarded her with one Buddha Jumps over the Wall.
“Chen B-Dog treats Zhou B-Ke 1 Buddha Jumps over the Wall. Quickly grab the treasure box!” He left a message, “You need to learn to sing professionally. Do not waste your precious talent.”
Without waiting for Zhou B-Ke’s reply, he said goodbye to the audience and turned off the broadcast.
It was getting lively now. Five million audiences were now homeless and they were all entered into the live broadcast room of Zhou B-Ke. They were making fun and commenting in the room. At glance, the popularity of Zhou B-Ke had risen from 200 thousand to 5 million. She became the super anchor directly and it made the other anchors feel envious of her.
The next day morning, at 7 am, the live broadcast started on time. There were few hundred thousand audiences that could not wait to rush into the broadcast room immediately.
By that time, Chen B-Dog was already neatly dressed and was making the fire to boil water. However, he was wearing a frown.
“Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Something had happened last night. I have only slept for three hours and have been looking after the tiger cubs until now. Probably because they are newborns; their immunity systems are too low and could not digest the meat soup. They have been groaning with pain. Now, they are at the gate of death.”
He aimed the camera at two tiger cubs. The audiences were very worried when they heard that something happened to tiger cubs. These two tiger cubs had helped the live broadcast room to increase its popularity yesterday. At night, they even appeared on the headlines of the social news. If they died at this time, then it was really game over.
