“Where did this gluttonous lady come from? To be so skilled, yet to have not heard about her before?”
Huan Qing Yan asked, “Is it done? Can I eat now? There would be a loss of flavor if the dish gets cold.”
Her words immediately woke Old Imperial Chef Zhang out of his stupor as he waved his hand to shoo her away, “Go go go, the judges have the right to taste the dishes created. You can go rest for now as there is nothing here for you.”
“Yes, indeed. You can go take a rest, do not block the other participants from submitting their creations.”
Huan Qing Yan was ‘pushed’ away with this method.
The group of elderly imperial chefs helped themselves by taking turns at having a spoonful of Steamed Egg with Prawns each, eventually cleaning out the plate through this method.
By then, the
other participants had begun to submit their creations for testing.
“No. 14, 50 Spirit Energy Points, Culinary Rate: Normal…”
“No. 3, 0 Spirit Energy Points, Culinary Rate: Fail…”
“No. 91, 78 Spirit Energy Points, Culinary Rate: Good…”
Only when they saw a dish with a Good rating, did the judges sample the food.
However, after eating Huan Qing Yan’s dish, the other dishes always seemed to be lacking something…
While everyone was focused on the information displayed on the scale, Huan Qing Yan focused her attention on Huan Meng Yue instead.
Earlier on, Huan Meng Yue was blankly staring at the ingredients. Only when the appointed hour was reaching did she begin to start cooking. Her actions were exceptionally skillful and elegant, moving like a fluttering butterfly. Her deliberate and practiced actions would make people feel that she was dancing instead of cooking.
Huan Qing Yan stared wide-eyed.
The f*ck, such a
a flirtatious cooking method exists?
Currently within the testing area, only Huan Meng Yue was left. With nothing else to be done, the group of elderly imperial chefs focused their attention on Huan Meng Yue.
All of them got startled at what they saw.
One of the elders who possessed stronger knowledge stood up and exclaimed, “Han Palace’s Butterfly Cooking Technique?”
“Indeed, it does looks similar! It was said that it is a rare cooking technique that was lost after the Butterfly Sage transcended. The technique was passed down?”
“Shush, keep quiet and let her finish her task before we ask any questions.”
Everyone did not need to wait for long as Huan Meng Yue’s fluttery dance stopped, at the same time, a plate of Prawn Omelette was created.
Fine beads of sweat could be seen on her forehead, after Huan Meng Yue completed her cooking, the first person she looked
she looked at was Huan Qing Yan, displaying an arrogance within her gaze towards Huan Qing Yan.
The judges could not sit still and wait for her to submit her dish and went up to her to inspect her creation instead.
The dish’s fragrance, looks and taste was perfect, just from its look, one would feel that it was an extraordinary dish.
They were also not in a hurry to test the dish’s spirit energy value, instead, they asked the question that concerned them the most, “No. 5. Where did you learn the Butterfly Cooking Technique from?”
Huan Meng Yue smiled, her palm size face was covered in pride as she replied, “Dear elder, this girl awoke my spirit treasure three days ago and obtained my Egg Star. It is unknown how but I seemed to be able to communicate with a God and obtained the God’s aid, leading God’s aid, leading me to learn the Butterfly Cooking Technique and become a Spirit Chef…”
The group of elders replied in surprise, “What? You only awakened your spirit treasure three days ago? And only just became a Spirit Chef?”
“That’s impossible! To become an entry level Spirit Chef, one would need to train for at least one to two years. In addition, Star Talent has nothing to do with a Spirit Chef’s rate of improvement nor does it have a direct relation at one’s aptitude to become a Spirit Chef, right?”
“Didn’t this lass just say that she obtain a God’s aid? It might be the Butterfly Sage manifesting the spirit to search for a disciple and inheritor!”
Old Imperial Chef Zhang initially had some prejudice against Huan Meng Yue, a person with her type of character was exceptionally repulsive. But now, his attitude towards her turned around.
A God Chosen!
