Gourmet Live Room (Interstellar) - 2
According to Su Yemu, for thousands of years in ancient China, people viewed food as their top priority. As a Chinese citizen, and as a foodie, he couldn’t endure it. Climbing out of bed, Su Yemu searched his head for any useful memories. At that moment, he thought of an electronic product called terminal. This thing is equivalent to the modern day ID card, bank card, mobile phone and computer all combined, which is very convenient.
Su Yemu follows the memory to open the terminal on his wrist, scanned his face to login directly, the page is a bit like Taobao1.
On the left-hand side of the bottom menu bar, the ‘my’ option contains personal information such as identification, star currency balance, etc. There are also four other options: e-mail, shopping cart, and friends. Above the menu bar is a web page, which is similar to the engine of his original world.
There are many categories on it. Su Yemu stared at the word ‘supermarket’ and clicked on it. In there, it’s then categorized in meat, vegetables, and so on. If he must say what’s different from the original world, it is that there are a lot of unknown animal meat names that he doesn’t recognize, and animal meat is also graded. Isn’t this the same as how there are different types of chicken in the original world? Like feed chicken, free-range chicken, and farm chicken? Su Yemu thought to himself.
Su Yemu does not understand, but his eyes are shining. The meat in the supermarket has already been placed in a pot or being steamed or braised by him. The best taste requires us to stir-fry and roast it. Though it’s easy to get a slight fever or heat from it.
Su Yemu browsed through the supermarket once, and had a general understanding of the price of food. He returned to check the balance of their star coin on the terminal and there were only 200 star coins. For this poor family, 200 star coins were already quite a lot. This should be the pocket money Su Xiaonan gave him. Although a fool is stupid, he can buy snacks with star coin. From this, we can see that Su Xiaonan treats her brother really well.
Thinking of Su Xiaonan’s skinny body, Su Yemu felt that these low-quality nutrient fluids must be eliminated as soon as possible, and making money needs to be put on the agenda immediately. Su Yemu can’t let a 12-year-old child raise him, he’s not too thick-skinned for that.
So how do you earn money?
SuYemu, who is not yet fully familiar with the interstellar, thought of an idea; ask online.
[What profession pays the most money now?]
As expected for an interstellar era, the Wi-Fi speed is so fast that it’s scary. In an instant, a list of the money-making professions came up. The third place is chef, and the second place is live broadcast.
There’s also an explanation underneath as to why broadcasts about chefs are ranked higher.
When humans left the earth, Neptune established political power. It’s unknown whether it was due to radiation, but it didn’t take long for the genes of a human body to change. The spirit divides human beings into eight levels, the highest SSS level and the lowest F level. The higher the spirit, the stronger its ability to drive starships and warships. Thus, in 820 Ephemeris, mankind had the first war, and the war burned for three hundred years. During this war, mankind not only lost its own civilization, but even many books brought from the earth were missing. At the same time, because the war lasted for 300 years, the country consumed nutrient fluids for 300 consecutive years in order to save money and manpower, which directly led to the loss of human cooking.
Subsequently, the regime split into two, forming a Federation and an empire. After another 300 years, mankind began to revive civilization, and at this time, as something that had followed mankind for thousands of years, cooking was pushed to the highest point.
At present, in the interstellar, cooking technology is monopolized by several families, and the restaurants opened are basically concentrated in the main star and several rich planets, and the prices are terrifyingly expensive.
In addition to these families, there is a group of people who have mastered some cooking skills, that is, chefs. However, the number is scarce. At present, the Imperial Chefs Association has issued no more than a thousand cook certificates. One must know that in an Empire that has tens of millions of people, this number is a bit frightening.
As for the second job occupation on the list, live broadcast, to Su Yemu who was born in the era of information explosion/bomb, he is not surprised. His senior would often cook while broadcasting live. He heard that his income is very high, perhaps he can start from here.
With an idea in mind, Su Yemu chooses a platform with the highest ranking. According to the platform, the number of permanent users here reaches more than 10 billion. If there is a holiday or festival, it can reach 20 billion, which is very frightening.
There are recommended posts or videos on the platform pages, and the top one is a video called ‘teach you how to make xiaolongbao2‘. When Su Yemu clicked on it, the anchor had already reached the stage of kneading dough. While introducing the proportion of water and noodles, the anchor puts the materials into the machine. After five minutes, one after another, the dumpling wrappers spit out from the machine, it looks like the thickness is just right, but for Su Yemu who is a chef, this is just a soul-less xiaolongbao.
After the machine spits out the wrappers, the anchor picks up the wrapper and begins to pack the xiao long bao. Su Yemu was curious about this process, and he also wanted to see how people in this era closed the steamed dumpling. To Su Yemu’s surprise, the anchor put the stuffing directly in the middle of the wrapper, and closed the skin, pinching it tightly and finishing it.
Using this method, the anchor wrapped twenty-four steamed buns, steamed them directly in the pot, and then came out after twenty minutes. At this time, the screen was full of barrage comments, and all of them were talking about how delicious the food was.
Su Ye Mu is a little confused. Delicious? How do they know if it’s good or not? Aren’t they all just watching?
Su Yemu took a closer look on the screen and saw a holographic option, which reminded him of an article on the interstellar network that he had not seen before. It said that the virtual technology in the future is mature enough to let people live in it. Can they really taste it?
With doubts, Su Yemu changed to the hologram mode, and instantly felt that he had come to another place. Here, he could hear voices and see the surge of people’s heads, and can see pairs of chopsticks putting one xiaolongbao after another into the mouth of the virtual characters. They kept talking about how delicious it was, that before Su Yemu figured out how to work the holographic thing, he had also picked up chopsticks and picked up a xiaolongbao to taste.
The skin is too thick, and the stuffing is a little fishy. The meat must have not been handled well. The skin of the xiao long bao is even worse. Nevertheless, Su Ye Mu is quite amazed by the power of high technology. He can really taste the food, although he can’t swallow them.
Su Yemu is not satisfied, but the audience is satisfied ah!
/ I love xiaolongbao: [😭] It’s so delicious. It’s easy and convenient to make. We must get a ‘spaceship’ /
/A husky that needs to lose weight; I haven’t had such a delicious snack for a long time. The anchor really deserves the certificate of second-class chef/
/I don’t want to eat nutrient fluids: Why am I still keeping this ’suspension car’ for? Come on, send the anchor up./
/Carnivore: the anchor is beautiful and kind-hearted. He is willing to teach us how to make xiao long bao. I loves the anchor so much, here’s a ‘starship’ for encouragement/
Su Yemu watched one gift after another exploding and the corner of his mouth twitching. According to his understanding of the gifts on this platform just now: Captain [10000 star coin], star ship [1000 star coin], spaceship [100 star coin], airship [10 star coin], suspension car [recommended].
The chef only broadcasted a few baskets of xiaolongbao, and the gifts were already brushed up, and the income erupted as well.
Su Yemu looks at the anchor’s information and finds that his popularity is as high as 600 million, and he holds a second-class cook’s certificate. After visiting other food anchor platforms and understanding the operation rules of the platform, Su Yemu made up his mind, and directly applied for an account, which is called ‘Su Ye Mu’, and the live broadcast room is called ‘Gourmet Live Room’, which is simple and clear.
After hanging the announcement, Su Yemu quit the live broadcast room and went to the supermarket to choose the ingredients. He only had 200 stars, and he still have to go to the kitchen to see if he needs to buy a pot. He doesn’t know if this money is enough.
Right after Su Yemu quit, the live broadcast platform exploded. Due to people’s love for food, every time a new food anchor enters, the platform will send out a notification. Although Su Yemu hasn’t recorded a video yet, the name of the food has been hung in his live broadcast room. People click in to see it, and instantly feel high-class.
/123Woodman: I don’t know why. I got hungry seeing these two names./
/mhe: Three fresh congee, i’ve never heard of it, what is it? Jian dian bing is a cake made with eggs! So how do you turn it into a cake? /
/I am stupid: feels like the new food anchor is very amazing, but I’m not sure about his capabilities./
/ Want to eat delicious food: no star, no chef’s license, an expert among the people? Looking forward to tomorrow/
/ I’m a legend: Su Yemu? Real name? Is it alright to be so direct? How fascinating/
/Girl: Inexplicably worried, if the anchor’s cooking is delicious, but he does not have a chef’s license, the food cannot be taken out, isn’t that awful? ‘Waa’, cry/
There are more and more comments in Su Yemu’s live room. With just the names of the two dishes, he had suddenly become popular. However, Su Yemu had no idea about this as he was looking at the pot in the kitchen. Unexpectedly, although the contents in the kitchen were not complete, there were still some pots and bowls.
After confirming the tools, Su Yemu began to place orders in the ’supermarket’. Rice, meat, eggs, and other ingredients. He did not dare to buy more. For a meal for two people, and the usual oil, salt, sauce and vinegar, a total cost of 198 star coin, is too expensive.
The only comfort to Su Yemu is that the express delivery here is fast, even if he is not on the same planet emperor star, the arrival time of express delivery will not exceed fifteen minutes. Therefore, even though Su Yemu had already placed an order, he had set the arrival time to be for tomorrow morning at 7:10am.
“Older brother?” When Su Xiaonan opened the door, she saw what her brother was doing. When she walked over, she saw the prompt notification that said that the order is now completed on Su Yemu’s terminal, and asked, “Brother, can you really do it?”
After reorganizing her state of mind, Su Xiaonan is now able to face her older brother’s somewhat abnormal brain settings, so she asked bluntly.
“Don’t worry! Watch older brother tomorrow.” Su Yemu rubbed Su Xiaonan’s head lightly and smiled, “From now on, older brother will raise you.”
Su Yemu’s face is exquisite, and his eyebrows are curved when he smiles. It is not the first time that Su Xiaonan sees Su Yemu smile, but it is the first time that her brother makes her feel at ease. Her brother also knows to say that he will raise her, how nice.
“Ah, that’s right, I’ll be live streaming me making breakfast tomorrow, would you like to see it?”
“Ah? Older Brother, you even know how to apply for an account? ”
“Let me see … Older brother, you’re stupid, why did you use your real name! ”
“You are so stupid.”
The intertwined and undulating discussion sounded in the living room. Two heads gathered together to discuss how to attract and retain the audience tomorrow. Su Yemu completely didn’t expect his live room had become a hot search due to the names of the two dishes.
- Taobao is a Chinese online shopping website.

It’s pretty good sanxian congee
- 鸡蛋饼/ji dan bing is an egg savory crepe consists of egg, green onion and flour. It is similar to Malaysia’s kuih kapit. And it can be similar to an omelette (since you fold them as well), and egg rolls (you can roll them up as well). But it’s actually egg savory crepe.
