Here is my favorite Chicken cutting video!

 

 

 

 

That's one of my favorites as well. It's like watching Sub Zero from Mortal Kombat throw down the ultimate fatality on an unsuspecting bird. It's one of the very few videos I've found that demonstrates the proper use of a honesuki / garasuki. I must have watched it a 20 times. There are lots of fun Related Videos on YouTube to explore.

This woman is so fucking gangster, I don't even have words. Since there are no words, here are some videos making food for the Spring Festival and the Year of the Pig.

 

 

 

And here's a non-cooking video where she goes out into a bamboo forests, cuts down some trees, and turns them into furniture.

 

 

I cannot stop watching.

Cool! cool.gif

And that's some very good filming!

I've added her to my list.

 

ETA: I have some Chinese one-piece forged cleavers and knives (the handle is rolled from the initial flat piece of steel) similar to what she's using.

Here's one of them...

Very rustic!

I watch two YouTubers:

Buon-A-Petitti - an Italian grandmother who makes Italian food

and

Souped Up Recipes - a young woman who makes Chinese/Asian food. She makes it look simple and mis en place is everything.

I have never gotten in the habit of YouTube, or any other, videos. Let us all pray I don't. I burn enough time on cooking sites as it is!

Sorry to quote myself but I have found it interesting that one of Souped Up Recipes videos was recently edited. This is the video in question:

Authentic Szechuan Sauce For Dumplings, Noodles or Eggrolls
https://youtu.be/qozPuF1lU4Q

I had watched it before and was alarmed to see at the end of the video she said the sauce she made in the video could stay in the refrigerator for 2 months or at room temperature for 30 days. Which was insane. 

The recipe was chiles, garlic, salt and sesame oil and a couple of other things. There wasn't any acid to act like a pickling agent, and there wasn't nearly enough salt in the recipe to act like a preservative.

Now when I view that video that "best if used by" info at the end was edited out.**

**However, she may have edited the crazy info out of the video, but she forgot to edit the recipe which is posted in the Info section about the video below her name on the video page. You can see clear as day:

**HOW TO STORE**

* This will stay good for around 30 days at room temperature. It will last 2 months in the fridge.

I think someone sent her a message that her information about how long the sauce would last was on the counter/in the fridge would lead to food poisoning. She edited the video but not the printed recipe. 

It makes me wonder how much other misinformation is out there on YouTube.
