Chapter 1001: A Disparity Surpassing One Yuan

Translator: Henyee Translations  Editor: Henyee Translations

Seeing the judges praising Yuan Zhou’s Bell Pepper Prawn one after another, the host did not know how the others felt. What he did know was he was breaking out in cold sweat.

After the four judges finished praising Yuan Zhou’s dish, the host was on the verge of going on a strike.

“I am the host of this cooking match, yet from the start, all the judges are overwhelmingly praising only one side, as if this was a fixed match. What can a professional host like me do? Well, of course, I’m going to forgive them,” thought the host as he finally calmed down after an intense mental gymnastics.

“Well then, since the judges have all voiced their opinions, let us move on to the next dish,” the host quickly moved on the next dish when the judges stopped talking.

“Please grade the second dish of the seafood alliance, Winter Bamboo Shoots With Sea Cucumber,” said the host.

Whoosh! Whoosh! This time, only two signboards were raised, the signboards of Bai Xiaoxiao and Wang Xiang.

“The other two judges, please raise your signboards as well,” reminded the host gently.

“Zero points from me for this dish,” Zhou Shijie said.

“Um, zero points,” Zhang Yan nodded and sat there without any intention of moving.

“Ok. Then, the Winter Bamboo Shoots With Sea Cucumber has obtained a total of two points,” said the host with a smile after stealthily taking in a deep breath.

“Holy shit, they can even grade this way?” This was the thought everyone had at this moment.

Having learned his lesson, the host did not stop and immediately spoke, “Chairman Zhang, please give us your thoughts on your reason for giving zero marks.”

“Simple. This dish is neither a Sichuan Cuisine nor is it seafood. Moreover, the sea cucumber’s flavor was lost while the winter bamboo shoots are bitter,” said Zhang Yan without hesitation.

Upon hearing this comment, Qianji Crab Restaurant’s head chef who was the chef for this dish paled. After all, they were telling him to his face that he couldn’t cook.

Alas, he couldn’t say anything of retort. After all, Zhang Yan was the chairman of Sichuan Cuisine Association, an even more troublesome individual than Zhou Shijie. As the saying went, at times, federal authority was incomparable to the local authority.

“I thought Head Chef Qian claimed that this is his signature dish?” said Chef Li resentfully as he looked at Head Chef Qian behind him.

As for the others, some looked at him with sympathy while others looked at him with resentment. After all, the score of this dish was too low and would affect their final victory.

“Damn it. I refuse to believe Yuan Zhou is better than me. He does not specialize in seafood. It is possible he hasn’t even seen a sea cucumber before,” thought the head chef as he glared at Yuan Zhou.

On the other hand, Yuan Zhou was calmly staring at the distant clock, calculating the time left until he could return to his restaurant.

As for the hatred and envy he was attracting, Yuan Zhou did not care. In his opinion, there were way too many people jealous of his handsome looks. That random chef whose name was unknown was not worth any concern.

That’s right. All the while, Yuan Zhou was of the opinion that those envious gazes thrown his way was due to his good looks. After all, his great cooking skills were already common knowledge, something nobody would be jealous of. Therefore, the only reason someone would be jealous of him was due to his good looks.

“Looking too good can be troublesome as well,” thought Yuan Zhou as he frowned deeply, as if he was deeply anxious about something.

“Please grade Head Chef Yuan’s Red Sea Cucumber Bamboo Shoots,” said the host. The clamor and noise did not affect him at all.

Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Four signboards were raised in tandem.

The host cautiously looked over the points given by all four judges before he spoke.

“Looks like Head Chef Yuan has once again conquered the taste buds of the judges. Again, he obtained 10 points, an incredible result,” said the host.

This time, the host did not bother asking the judges or Yuan Zhou for their opinions. He immediately moved on to the next dish.

Wang Xiang who was already ready to voice his thoughts choked on his own words when the host moved on.

The grading of the next dish caused the sounds of discussion of the seafood alliance people and the others to grow even louder.

That was because subsequently, the seafood alliance obtained two points per dish three times in a row, while Yuan Zhou obtained the maximum points for all of the three dishes.
