Chapter 568 – Temper tantrum appeased (6)
This Manager Xu was so nervous that he nearly cried.
His Highness Prince Jin had just issued some orders to people at the manor, whoever dared to neglect this great Buddha in front of them in the slightest, then the consequences would be too horrible to contemplate.
Hearing herself being addressed so, Su Luo immediately smiled.
“What young lady Princess? What’s all this and that title? Just calling me Miss Su Luo will be fine.”
Su Luo rarely had a smile on her face, but these people in the kitchen, including Manager Xu, each and every one of them was frightened and treated her with caution.
They seemed even more nervous than when facing the emperor.
Su Luo subconsciously touched her own face.
The facial features were delicate, a quiet and exquisite style that was pleasant. At first glance, she might not be stunning, but she was the type where the more you looked, the more she seemed to deserve a second look.
“Su, Miss Su, whatever you need, just tell us. Inside a kitchen is a place full of oil and soot, and also very slippery. If you knocked or bumped into something, we will, will…” With our ten lives, it would still not be enough to compensate.
Once Manager Xu said it, those cooks and helpers all nodded simultaneously.
Su Luo’s heart secretly sighed, the servants in Prince Jin’s Royal Manor were too pitiful. Being intimidated by Nangong Liuyun, this tyrant, made their psychological strength exceedingly low.
“How long has it been since your Highness Prince Jin last ate?” Su Luo asked lightly.
Manager Xu deferentially responded: “Since His Highness returned last night, the kitchen had prepared meals eighteen times already, but without exception, it was all left uneaten.”
“Okay, you people can go now.” Su Luo waved her hand.
“But….” Manager Xu was still not assured, trembling with fear as he stared at Su Luo’s delicate little hand holding the knife. He swallowed a mouthful of saliva, and with great difficulty: “How about letting this old servant act as your sous-chef?”
“No need, all of you go out now.” Su Luo stiffened her face, not allowing another say in this.
Manager Xu was suddenly nervous and repeatedly nodded, bringing everyone out.
Very quickly, such a huge kitchen only had Su Luo remaining behind in it.
Nobody knew, not even Yun Qi from before knew that Su Luo actually had very good cooking skills.
Su Luo decided to be a little nicer to Nangong Liuyun, as a result, she would start with cooking, first.
Nangong Liuyun hadn’t eaten for a night, his stomach should be empty, eating soft foods was most suitable, therefore, Su Luo decided to make congee.
There was no way for her to make the most delicious and popular, meat with preserved egg congee, because here, they didn’t even have preserved eggs.
Thus, Su Luo decided to make her best dish of threaded chicken congee.
She took out a piece of chicken breast and tore it into threads, and also washed the vegetables clean and cut it all.
Su Luo the put together the chicken breast soup with the highest grade rice. As for the water used to boil the congee, Su Luo very extravagantly exchanged it for the spirit spring water from inside her space.
After tightly covering it with a lid, she used a slow, thin fire to stew it.
Just drinking congee was too monotonous.
Su Luo looked all around in the kitchen, and saw a golden whitebait fish in the water jar.
The golden whitebait fish was great for healing injuries, it was most suitable for Nangong Liuyun, that sick patient.
Su Luo discovered that after she had her martial arts, the speed she processed the fish was not just an ordinary sort of fast. The hand raised the knife then landed, and a golden whitebait fish was already neatly processed.
Su Luo washed it clean, and on both sides of the fish, she cut a few slanting lines that were neither too deep nor too shallow.
A wind from her palm swept by, and the originally dripping wet golden whitebait fish was immediately dry.
She opened the fire, poured in a little vegetable oil, added a few slices of ginger and segments of green scallions.
Su Luo placed the golden whitebait fish into the wok and stir-fried it for a short time. She then pan-fried both sides of the golden whitebait fish until it was golden brown.
She poured in the already boiled water and placed the already pan-fried fish inside the water. Then, she added a few slices of ginger and segments of green scallions, using a huge fire to cook, until her soup had turned into a milky-white color.
Only naturally, the water in this soup was also replaced by Su Luo with the spirit spring water from her space.
Opening the pot, one could only smell an intense fragrance that hit one in the face…
Chapter 569 – Temper tantrum appeased (7)
Looking at the fruits of her own labor, Su Luo nodded with satisfaction.
Outside of the kitchen, Manager Xu and them didn’t really go far. They were all nervously standing watch from outside the door, straining their ears to listen for the situation inside, fearing that their future princess would meet with even a small mishap.
“Princess, what is Miss Su doing ah?” The first chef stood on tiptoe, sticking his head out to look around inside.
“She is personally cooking for His Highness.” The second chef’s first guess was right on the money.
“Does she even know how to ah? I’m not just saying this, but our Highness is the pickiest about his food. He does not eat any kind of chicken, duck or fish, he does not even look at the fresh vegetables. We are also considered some of the top-notch cooks in the kitchen right, but His Highness is still not very satisfied. The stuff this Miss Su manages to make……” Would it be edible? A third chef had deep skepticism towards the outcome.
The fourth chef felt the most indignant at this injustice: “How could such a rich miss personally cook in the kitchen? The stuff she makes certainly won’t be edible.”
Manager Xu scowled coldly, cast them a glance and solemnly warned: “Shut up if you don’t want to die.”
His Highness Prince Jin had already said, if he let this Miss Su have one thread of dissatisfaction, even just a slight wrinkle of her brows, and they would all have to automatically jump into the lake.
Therefore, everyone’s manner in treating the future princess must be a heartfelt, dedicated worship like holding the moon. They must not let the future princess receive even an iota of grievance.
Once Manager Xu said those words, immediately, the surrounding area turned quiet. You could even clearly hear the sound of the blowing wind and leaves dropping down.
Wasn’t His Highness Prince Jin not interested in females getting close? This time, it was truly unprecedentedly grand ah.
Just at this moment, from the kitchen, came a startling sound.
“Eh, what is this smell? So aromatic ah.” The first chef sniffed with his nose, step by step, he walked forward, his eyes carrying a touch of infatuation.
“It seems to be coming from the kitchen.” The second chef was staring in astonishment at the tightly closed door.
“Could it be Miss Su……” The third chef said, simply in disbelief.
“This is impossible!” The fourth chef’s eyes were opened wide until they were perfectly round, with an outrageous appearance.
“Creak——”The noise sounded, and the tightly closed door of the kitchen quietly opened.
Su Luo, fully concentrating on carrying food containers, walked out.
An unprecedented aroma filled the air between heaven and earth. The aroma spread, making everyone’s mouth water.
“Oh Heavens, this smell, so fragrant……”
“Oh Heavens, just smelling this aroma, I am already about to pass out from happiness……”
“Is this the kind of food truly made by our future princess? If it’s real, then how could we survive?” The food that the princess personally made was many times better than these expert imperial chefs’!
Everyone repeatedly sighed ruefully and was also restless.
A rich fragrance filled the air, lingering for a long time.
The fragrance was simply too captivating, making a person’s mouth move(water) and making it so difficult for them to swallow their own saliva. It gave people an urge to pounce up and snatch that food container away.
They had served as chefs for most of their lives, yet, such a fragrance had never appeared from the food they cooked.
Moreover, they faintly felt, that regardless of how many spices they put, they would still be unable to cook this kind of fragrant, rich smell.
“How was this achieved, in the end? Simply putting spices in is not the cause, really, no matter how much I think, I can’t understand.”
“Really want to taste a bite, just one bite is fine……boo hoo hoo…… Wait until the dish has been withdrawn, nobody is allowed to snatch it from me!”
“If you let this old man taste a bite, this old man can immediately die and also rest in peace contentedly ah.”The first chef, who was the oldest, ruefully sighed.
Manager Xu swept a glance at this crowd of chefs who originally had no hope for Su Luo’s cooking skills.
