  • You can tell Chris does mostly western style cooking. Scallions and soy sauce are staples for asian cooking, as is incorporating all the ingredients into a sauce without any prep. They all get soaked and cooked together.

  • Well, pretty common for korean homes to not even have an oven so that roasting of the chicken was a nope.

    Skalare MalarkinsSkalare Malarkins7 gün önce
  • The thing that Chris doesn't seem to realize is that Asian cuisine has a tendency to use maybe a maximum of 2 pots/pans/whatever cooking method per dish. Like if you're already using a pot and you have to break out two more pans and an oven, you're doing something wrong.

  • I demand more reverse engineering episodes with Chris! This, along with the episodes with Brad and Matty going noodling is the best content on BA. Not saying that the rest isn't great, too, of course!

  • Apples and pears, pretty similar texture, and stewing negates their flavor profiles. Forgivable. But, Asian cooking are quick and simple processes. Have a Western trained chef do it and you get stuff like precooking the chicken, post cooking assembly (no Asian cooking anywhere requires intricate assembly prior to serving), and blanching scallions on the side for a garnish. Because that's totally a Korean thing to do.
