The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 354
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
When Jordan sat down to eat just now, Chris refused to let Jordan eat the food he ordered, and instead, insulted him by feeding him a bag of sauerkraut and bread.
Now, Jordan used the same method to get back at him!
Jordan said, “This is the food I made for my daughter. You’re not fit to eat it!”
Chris had long gotten used to being tyrannical and would make himself at home wherever he went. Hence, he would often eat anything he wanted without asking for permission.
This was the first time in his life that he had been denied food so his face turned sullen immediately!
Robb, who was standing at the door, immediately came forward to speak for Chris. “Bastard! Mr. Hank is being kind to you by being willing to eat the food you cook! How dare you forbid him from eating?”
“Mr. Hank has been to the French state banquet before. Do you understand? Do you know what kind of level you have to be at in order to attend that kind of event?!”
“You bumpkin, Mr. Hank wanted to give you some pointers because he noticed that you like cooking and yet, you still think we’re taking advantage of you?”
Jordan had long gotten sick of Robb’s incessant chattering. He snapped, “You dog, you’re in no place to speak to me. Get lost!”
Lauren also looked at Robb and said, “Go out. Don’t disturb us while we’re having a meal.”
Robb did not dare to disobey Lauren and thus retreated dejectedly.
At this moment, Chris was greatly embarrassed.
Lauren said to Jordan, “Jordan, Chris and I are going to get married soon, and he’ll become Chloe’s stepfather in the future. I hope that you two can get along a little better, okay?”
Lauren pleaded for Jordan when Chris forbade him from eating just now and now, she spoke up for Chris.
Jordan could tell what Lauren meant, so he said to Chris, “You can eat, but you have to wait until Chloe finishes eating.”
After saying that, he picked up the spoon and helped Chloe crack the cheese puff pastry. As soon as he did, the puff pastry, which looked like a mushroom, vanished immediately to reveal the black truffle soup that looked like a heavenly pool.
Once the puff pastry was broken, the steam from the truffle soup quickly wafted up along with a rich aroma that infiltrated their nostrils.
The soup would taste best when eaten hot. Jordan quickly scooped up a spoonful of soup and fed it to Chloe.
“Baby, open your mouth.”
Chloe opened her mouth and took a sip of the soup before flailing her arms about frantically. “It’s delicious!”
Jordan scooped another spoonful and handed it to Lauren. “You were out and about with me the whole of yesterday, so you didn’t eat anything either. Try it.”
Lauren was touched. She had tasted the delectable food made by Jordan previously, so she naturally wanted to eat the food he cooked.
“Thank you, I’ll do it myself.”
Lauren picked up her spoon, too.
However, Jordan held the spoon for a long time without putting it down. He said, “Just use this one. Chloe used it just now. I didn’t.”
Jordan knew that a mother would never find her daughter’s used spoon dirty.
Lauren blushed and was a little embarrassed. “That… that’s not very appropriate. Why don’t you put the spoon down while I drink it on my own?”
Chris turned beet red, and he glared at Jordan and Lauren with his eyes wide open. ‘Is Jordan going to feed my fiancée right in front of me?’
Jordan said, “I… I don’t intend to feed you either. Take it.”
“Oh…” Lauren felt really ashamed and embarrassed for mistakenly thinking that Jordan would feed her like he had fed Chloe!
He didn’t mean that at all! Worst still, she had made that blunder right in front of her fiancé!
Lauren took the spoon, took a sip, and praised, “Mmm! It’s delicious! I’ve never had such delicious truffle soup before!”
Chris humphed coldly and said, “People who have never seen a grand scene tend to be easily moved by such a trivial thing.”
Seeing that Jordan didn’t have a spoon himself because he had given his to her, she hurriedly handed Jordan her spoon and said. “Use mine. Have some soup too. Don’t just focus on feeding Chloe.”
Jordan nodded, took the spoon from Lauren’s hand and took a mouthful of soup himself.
Jordan was extremely upset because he felt that the act of exchanging spoons was way too romantic!
At this point, Jordan, Chloe and Lauren had already drunk the soup. Thus, Jordan said to Chris, “You can drink the soup now.”
Chris was so furious that he no longer wanted to eat anymore. He even felt an urge to smash the food that Jordan cooked onto the ground!
However, he had to taste it now because only then could he accurately point out the flaws in Jordan’s cooking.
Chris picked up the spoon and took a spoonful of soup, only to be astonished!
“How can this be? It tastes exactly like the food I tasted in the Élysée Palace!”
Chris was extremely picky about food and after tasting these two dishes made by numerous people after Paul Bocuse passed, he felt they were all far from Paul’s.
However, Jordan’s cooking had surprisingly perfectly met Chris’s high requirements!
‘How can this bastard be so good at cooking!?!’
Jordan’s combat strength had already taken Chris by surprise and the latter had never expected him to be so good at cooking!
However, how could Chris possibly compliment his love rival, who had defeated him?
Chris deliberately made himself seem like he was feeling extremely uncomfortable. “What did you do to the black truffle?! It tastes like kerosene. Surely it isn’t poisonous, right? Ahem, ahem…”
“Lauren, Chloe, I advise you not to eat it either. It tastes totally off!”
Lauren said, “No, I think it tastes great. It may be a little subpar compared to the one made by the world famous chef you mentioned. It’s not as bad as you made it out to be.”
Jordan humphed coldly and asked, “Have you ever tasted Paul’s cooking or not?”
Having been questioned by Jordan, Chris immediately argued, “Of course I have at the Élysée Palace! That’s the French president’s official residence! It was a state banquet!”
“Okay, okay, stop mentioning the state banquet at every turn. Aren’t you annoyed at all?” Jordan was speechless. “I’ve also lived in France for a period as a child and I used to go to the Élysée Palace all the time. Paul used to be in charge of all my meals.”
“Moreover, before he died, he also gave me the secret recipe of the puff pastry black truffle soup and sea bass in puff pastry.”
Hearing this, Chris immediately questioned, “You’re bragging! How could you have eaten at the state banquet before!?!”
Jordan was helpless. ‘This guy is still talking about the state banquet.’
Lauren explained, “Chris, the Steeles have great influence all over the world, and are on good terms with many of the world’s top families and masters of various trades. It’s not strange for Jordan to know Paul Bocuse.”
Chris also suddenly remembered that Martin had once asked him to give up on Lauren because of Jordan!
He also said that Chris’s family background couldn’t be compared to Jordan’s!
Although Chris didn’t know much about the Steeles, he knew that the Steeles were truly powerful!

Chris said, “Hmph, why do you keep mentioning your past glory? So what if you know Paul? So what if you’ve been to the Élysée Palace?”
“That doesn’t change the fact that you’re so broke now that you can’t even afford your cab fare or a bowl of noodles. Hahaha…”
Jordan was just about to lose his temper when his phone suddenly rang.
The person who called was Mandy, the owner of the house he was living in now!
Jordan was astounded.. ‘Does she have Victoria’s whereabouts?’
