Liu Weiwei transmigrated to the interstellar period and found herself as the lowest ranking student in an Interstellar High School.

The poor performance of the original owner was ridiculed by the whole school, and the accidental pregnancy, even the father of the child was not known.

Then Liu Weiwei realized that there was also a food system with her.

[Get the recipe Mapo Tofu.] [Get the recipe of sauerkraut fish.] [Get the recipe Xiao long bao.]

Soon, the whole interstellar was shook, people swarmed towards her with their tears flowing from their mouths.

Marshal: The snail noodles are good. Come to work in the cafeteria of our military area, you will have five insurances and one housing fund.

Scientist: Fried chicken is the best, give me one, don’t force me to kneel down and beg you!

Villain: I want to eat too… Who am I? Where am I? What am I doing?

Male protagonist (rare low-key boasting tone): My wife is not good at cooking, you’d better not come to my house for dinner.

This was a great read that I MTL'd after reading the author's other works and I'm glad it's being translated now because it's a really fun story!

After a series of rage induced actions, the MC's soul is bound to a system that forces her to bring the lost craft of Chinese cooking to the interstellar age and placed inside the body of an orphaned, low specs, heavily debt-ridden, college-aged student. Unsurprisingly, the MC is hella upset by these turn of events but since the punishment for not complying with the... more>> system is the destruction of her soul she goes along with it. Luckily for her, while her situation sucks, the system gives her tasks which lets her unlock cooking skills and knowledge which she uses to rise up the cooking world. I think my favourite part of the MC's journey to the top of the cooking world is that it's different from the usual cooking system bound protagonists.

Instead of becoming a live streamer or opening a restaurant right away she starts with a small street food stall then becomes a military chef and so forth. By the end of the story she's engaged in like 3 or 4 different food related businesses. Seeing her start from the bottom and slowly moving up is really gratifying because you can really enjoy her growth as a chef and a person. Furthermore, I like that the system doesn't just instantly give her godly cooking skills. It actually makes her work for them after intense periods of closed door training and shocks her with electricity when she messes up. Knowing how hard she has to work really makes you think she deserves the success she's later met with. Also, the system gives her interesting tasks and she gets involved in a lot of cool events like creating a night market for the troops.

. I think if you've read this author's other works you'll see that they have a knack for taking kind of cliche premises and giving them a fun twist. The romance doesn't really get heated up until about a fourth of the way in because the MC has no idea she's pregnant until then. By this point she's already somewhat acquainted with the ML though neither know he's the baby's father because they had both lost their memory of what had happened when they first slept together. When the ML finds out he's the father he's very willing to take responsibility of her, not because he's in love with her at this point, but because he's a really upright guy. However, after he settles into the role of the MC's husband he does obviously fall in love with her. I liked the ML a lot because he's a good guy and a good husband/father and I thought it was hilarious that for a good chunk of the novel he mistakenly thought the MC was a terrible cook. Overall, a great read! <<less

Plot Potential? 5

writing skill? 0

make my head aches

MC? Bland s*upid no personality

plot itself? Honestly disappointing there is no rise for her skill. She suck at cooking at the start (lv 1) but it still the best tasting thing ever anyway

at this point I’m angry at how much potential chinese novel has as an interesting never seen before novel but always been destroyed by this kind of writing and chatacters

The translation is great. The two star reduction is for the story.

This is mainly just a warning to anyone who is going to read this story but if you are fine with the stuff I indicated below then do continue to read.

It started off great. However, the middle to end parts was very Mary Sue and the main mission of the mc/FL that was given by the food system was seemingly forgotten.

... more>>

FL was supposed to conquer the interstellar alliance and take down the food association that was amassing the recipes and only making it available to the nobles but FL just casually tamed the warcraft monsters and made friends with higher ups and other characters with status instead. The issue about the food association and how the common people weren’t able to have a taste of real food was explained in just a few sentences that seems to infer that it was just a misunderstanding and was never addressed even if that was the whole point of the system.


The author is good at foreshadowing. The arrangement and pacing of the chapters is also great with the comedy of misunderstandings going here and there. Yet, the relationship between the FL and ML also seems shallow and was vaguely described.

The ML was a great character but he suddenly fell in love with the FL and had interest in her because she looks like a “weak rabbit” and went on to have a marriage with the FL because of the child although it was explained by the author that he liked the FL not because of the child. Yet, there was no reason given at all on what aspect did he like about the FL when the FL was given a very lousy character description from he start.


Lastly, the best thing about this novel is how descriptive it is with the food, it’s origins, and how the FL made it. The supporting/side characters are also great and well-rounded. However, that is just the case with the easterners with the westerners and other small antagonists depicted as one-track characters with their sole existence being a stepping stone for the main characters and making the ML and (especially) the FL stand out.


This is evident with one instance in the novel where there was a 7-day exchange of some soldiers between barracks and (surprise) it was a few westerner soldiers who are very critical and whiny about everything and then (another surprise) gets tempted with how delicious fl’s food is. What’s worse? What happened after being so engrossed with the food was never stated. Did the western soldiers decide to stay in the eastern barracks? What was their position and how did that affect the other eastern soldiers? None. It ended just like that and was thrown at the back of everyone’s minds because the next instance has already started. This went on for almost all the events in the novel from the middle to the end of the story where the scene was left hanging just like that.


The concept of the novel itself is definitely great although the execution and interactions between the characters seems to be either vague or lacking and shows the severe bias of the author being a Chinese as you read through the novel. Don’t be fooled by the title because there is hardly any motherly interaction with the FL and her child with her being busy as a chef.


FL has wayyy more interactions with her apprentices as compared to her child who just gets vaguely stated as being carried here and there when the apprentices gets the lowest exposure in the novel next to the small antagonists. FL as a character is fine and it is stated and portrayed how she really cares and wants to be a great mother to her child. And this happens just once. Yes. Just once where a spoiled child was mentioned then it was vaguely solved by FL through her food and that’s it. The child is then left to the fl’s pet warcraft and robots to handle and take care of. There was no follow up nor childcare shown except carrying the child or coaxing the child to sleep (which was just stated by the ML in a few words mind you).


However, even with all these said, it is still a nice story to pass the time if the above points were ignored or if you are alright with them. The translation is clear and easy to understand with very minimal to no mistakes.

This is, by no means, meant to bash the novel as it is fully under the author’s rights and intentions on how the story goes. This review is just a precaution to any readers that are interested to have an insight on what is to come. That’s all! <<less

I think I'll just wait for the rest to be fully translated. This really started out great but because of my expectations which I forgot to drop before starting to read I was let down.

First of all this is not an interstellar chef raising a baby. This is an interstellar CHINESE chef NOT raising a baby.

For a Food Master System it's recipes are WAY WAY TOO BIAS on Chinese recipes. And so I decided to reread the first few chapters again and was shocked that I missed that the system... more>> was for making chinese food I was so embarrassed about myself thinking why MC was so fixated on Chinese food but it turns out I was wrong from the beginning it was a Chinese Food System *facepalm*.

As for the baby well is that important to the story? Isn't it just there to tie the MC to the Male lead.

For the apprentices I hate how the MC gets her third apprentice. It's like watching a boxing match and when it was about to declare the winner an anonymous audience suddenly came to the ring and sucker punched the winner yet the FMC just declared that audience as the new winner. I felt so betrayed at that moment and after thinking, well the author is a bit nationalistic so that is the only conclusion I've arrived. First the author doesn't want a girl apprentice since a man is better since MC is a girl. And second of all she cooks WESTERN Food not CHINESE food. Although it was stated that MC doesn't hate western food, it just doesn't feel that way. <<less

I started reading for the plot, but stayed because of the food. I’d classify this as a brainless light read. You just switch your brain off, and read all the food descriptions with enjoyment. 4 stars are for the translator who did an awesome job and for adding in all the pictures, gifs and additional info on the food or traditional aspects. The other star is for the plot, because while it was passable, it’s not really anything new and exciting. Best part of the story is the food, hands... more>> down. <<less

I'm in the mood for a food fic so I'm back to try and read again. I'm skimming from the beginning because I don't remember the story - I know recall that I disliked the premise of why she ended up in the interstellar.

She had all the right to curse out!!! Her bf was a damn cheater!


I started losing interest after the ML's misunderstanding was resolved and they got married. The later chapters almost feel like the system isn't as prevalent and a lot do the humor in the initial chapters is gone. The relationship between MC and ML is funny and cute tho. So many plot holes lmao. The focus is definitely on the food itself. —


The translation is decent. The story is good. The beginning was funnier than the later parts. After about chap 70ish, it gets a bit boring. But the focus of the fic is the food. The translators helpingly puts in photos of the food dishes. It's good for an easy read. Don't think too much about the plot or the plot holes for that matter.

If you just felt bored and want to read something I don't think you will like this because it's also quite boring. You will lose motivation to read the more you read this novel. BUT, if you want to read cooking novel specifically, then you got this because it's all about food. There are some troubles here and there but it all resolved by food.

MC is quite lacking maybe because she's just a young adult in this life? Or maybe because ML pampered MC too much. ML is overprotective and... more>> I kinda like it. ML's over protectiveness isn't suffocating. He's with a reason so it's fine for me.

The only thing I was bothered was the title. The story is all about cooking. There's NOTHING about raising a baby. She did raised the baby with ML but there's no story about it. It was only said she was cooking while the baby was within her womb but after giving birth theres nothing. <<less

3 stars for now.

I love the food descriptions, really, but the MC is iiiiiinnnncredibly s*upid. And I'm not talking about her academics - she just behaves like an idiot without break.

In a new body, experiencing terrible nausea? Why go to a check-up? Naaaaah. She's fine.

... more>> Sending someone who is used to nutrient solutions a tasty but super stinky dish? Why not warn him that the smell is bad but ask to try anyway? Naaaaaah. It's fine.

Realize her food seems to tame wild beasts? Inform superiors of this odd behaviour, maybe? Naaaah! Why would she!

Up until this chapter, the whole plot is just a series of misunderstandings because she's too s*upid to clear up very obvious issues. The ML is very polite so far, which is a plus, and the food descriptions and translations are nice though. It's okay for a casual read but I sure hope she grows a brain soon, this is pretty annoying. <<less

A hilarious and cute transmigration story with a lot of mouthwatering moments where all you would like to do would be to eat the delicious food depicted in the pictures. Personally, I love reading food stories and this is one of my favourites since I have started and this story is much better then all the other 500-1000 chapter stories which keep on dragging the plot.

The 1st half is good but in the middle and last it’s gets a bit draggy and bland. A bit dissatisfied, as thats it’s quite ok at first, but I would rather author ended it earlier as to drag it to more than 200 chapters (makes me skips alot chapters at the end part). But I do appreciate translator hardwork translating, cute gif, lots of food pictures along the chapters. Really makes one hungry. And the visuals makes me want to watch back all those anime. Lolol. Thank you

I'm a little more than halfway through this and I'm finally sick of it.

Probably the most over exaggerated food novels I've ever read, and that's a pretty high bar:

... more>>

Her system allows her to train up to 5 star chef level. Apply beauty points to herself. Apply skill points to apprentices. But the thing that gets me is it helps her pair foods to beasts in order to domesticate them. Even variants of beasts that aren't future/beast versions of existing domesticated animals. It's just too over the top.


None of this would be a problem if the author deviated from the rinse and repeat cycle of either someone dismissing the food before trying and then doing a cook off or someone trying it and being willing to be a loyal dog in any compacity in order to get more. Outside of those two points is a very tiny amount of her getting together with baby daddy.


Her and him both have black out during that time period where she got up the duff. She ends up working with him and within days of her finding out she's with child they are hitched. It ends up being for sure biologically his, but you have to wonder about power of system/plot to where she ends up being a cook under him before all of that is figured out. A bit far fetched even for cheesy romance.


Overall, try it if you are bored. Stop if you don't like it. I can say I should have probably stopped 30 chapters ago. <<less

False advertising because I thought it was gonna be a cute story about cooking and baby raising. It mostly only has cooking and some animal raising sprinkled through out it. Though I'm not that sad about it. Good but I got bored with it towards the end.

Hilarious and wholesome! I normally wait longer to review but the TL specifically asked.

MC was bound to a system and sent 7000 years into the future. She went from a top student turned high powered career woman into a starving, indebted, failing every subject waste. She is even considered mentally disabled by the standards of the future which was a huge shock to her.

Bound to a cooking system, she is tasked to revive ancient cuisine in a world where people rely only on nutrient fluid and cooking skills have been... more>> all but lost to time.

I find it hilarious that the ML thinks she can only do dark cooking. Everyone worships her and only he doesn't realize her strength lol. <<less

I absolutely need to read this book till the end -v-

It's really hard to find sci-fi related novels with female protagonist after all. When I searched the word interstellar, do you know what I get in here?

All of it almost yaoi/shounen ai genres which made me to feel despaired

Honestly, compared to other Salted Lobster that I've read so far, this one was my least favorite. Here came the rant:

    • I thought this novel was about raising babies while conquering the culinary world but somehow, raising babies were almost non-existent in this novel. Most of its content were about recipe, cooking process, and the diner's reviews. I usually didn't mind food theme novel but I still think this novel's title was a bit misleading.
    • MC and ML's relationship weren't developed well enough. Everything happened so fast between them. When they met for the first time, ML already took an interest in the rabbit-like MC. After he knew that she was pregnant with his child, he immediately married her and assumed the role of husband and father-to-be without any scruple. MC was actually a bit flustered with how fast their relationship progressed but in the end, she got along with ML's wish and it didn't take long for her to fall in love with him. Well, I think it can't be helped since ML was a male god for almost every woman in the universe and he was also a good husband and father.
    • What about the terrorist organization that threatened the military? It still didn't get eradicated until the end.
    • I also didn't like how MC looked down on western cuisine so much. Surely, chinese cuisine was delicious but western cuisine also had its own charm. And it's unfair to do PK between chinese and western cuisine since both of them wasn't comparable. It would be better if MC and her opponent competed with the same theme.

This is a very classic Chinese writer mary sue MC with an emotionally stunted handsome rich famous recognized ML with common trope system used to explain any sort of ambition or goals for FMC and convenient barely there baby for common trope reason for relationship. This is all the things you want for a brain dead reading experience. One extra star for translation quality.
