Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

On the Star Network there is a gourmet food broadcast, where all you can see are a pair of hands. However each dish that this broadcast comes out with is earthshakingly delicious. What’s more, the broadcast anchor’s voice is simply perfect!

With the broadcast’s rising popularity, several food programs extended him an olive branch. When the anchor appeared on screen, as they suspected, he is handsome enough to incur the wrath of both men and gods! The fans licked their screens with increasing frenzy, but after licking a while, they discovered…

Fans:…Wait a minute, isn’t this our fatally-ill idol who hasn’t long to live?

Small Gong: Take these damned nutrient solutions and throw them away! And get me that broadcast anchor!

When I saw it was a slow romance, I thought there'd still be romance in it. I can't recall exactly what chapter it was for ML but MC didn't realize he liked ML till like 99th chapter of 125 chapter book. honestly they just felt like good friends rather than romantic partners. Not a bad thing but even slow romances build up slowly, this didn't feel like it, the romance felt like an after thought. ... more>>
Spoiler

after ch. 99 they did get romantic... so romantic that they banged in the woods... while on a survival show. My God 🙈 but the survival show chapters weren't y favorite.

[collapse]

ML really isn't much different than other MLs especially those from interstellar novels. He was the first to realize he has feelings for MC, he could be a little silly (concerning the food but also MC's undies.) MC was very nice, humble most of the time (he didn't want to take money for the recipes he created, instead he donated it). I loved the chat with his fans their reactions were funny, but it runs into the problem that the author will use the same comments or similar phrasing.

Not much drama, this is a food centric novel! There will be walls of text devoted to ingredients & cooking. It could get a little dull if I'm honest and I'd start skimming or taking breaks because it could get repetitive. Most times the drama/suspense was just to give MC new ingredients or show off his skills. I'll believe ancient animals evolving into bigger or stronger varieties, I'll take MC knowing a very large variety of cuisine but I'm finding it hard to believe that he just happens to knowing so many methods for processing foods (like making soda and other types of goods that require special processes or ingredients, etc.)

I loved the little bun, he was pitiful but adorable. I wish there was more moments with him, like MC and him cooking together as brother bonding time. Also I feel a bit bad for their alien allies, their king in particular. There's a cultural & physiological difference but the way they (humans) treat them (aliens) sometimes rubbed me wrong
Spoiler

like the rutes have their hearts in the stomachs but when gilbert (the alien king) makes a love confession referencing his stomach, they sorta make fun of it. Sure he's fallen for MC because of the food but that doesn't mean he wasn't being sincere about his heart flutter. Also Gilbert tries hard to use great words of wisdom of humanity when speaking with the humans but he can mispeak & everyone's like "LOL look he got it wrong, too funny." Only the He brothers are kind enough to correct him but ML still has a misunderstanding with Gilbert (that Gilbert is attracted to him when really Gilbert just wants to be bros)

Wasn’t anything special. From the beginning I could tell everything was put together willy nilly. There wasn’t any scene in here that got me interested in the story at all. It was hard to keep reading because my mind would wander while reading it because it couldn’t keep my attention. Very repetitive, not realistic at all in aspects where it should be which makes things seem ridiculous in a not funny way, the romance was kind of there which was cute but the novel barely went into it.

The part I... more>> like most was about MC’s brother, I loved the devotion and all but then it goes from ‘big brother don’t leave me’ to ‘brother is going on a one month vacation with his lover! Bye!’ like okay nothing really matters in this novel at all, huh.

I wouldn’t say I regret reading it but this is definitely not something I would ever bother reading again. <<less

Thanks for the effort, author. But your cooking is watery.

I think I'll never touch anything cooking-related again, since it's a waste of time. Chapter in and chapter out it's all about cooking for 100+ chapters, don't you think it's too much? I do. Maybe ppl who like Chinese cuisine will love this, but at the rubbery taste of chicken wings I retched, since I hate boiled chicken skin. And ppl say they gained weight reading this, give me your sturdy stomachs please.

Dumb contradictions everyone gives a pass:

    • The whole notion of entire cooking to be forgotten. Humanity always tried to preserve and protect the heritage of knowledge. I hardly believe that the knowledge of cooking didn't survive and it bugged me all the time;
    • HOW on earth are they recreating things that have been forgotten? Like give me science please. If you forgot the products and how they look who is responsible for formulating, visual looks etc. And if you have that means humanity hasn't lost anything and it breaks entire logic;
    • The ingredient release. Though it's logical for ppl to not know how to cook (at the beginning), but the long presence of Chef Association and the talks of all those restaurants contradicts the notion of newly released ingredients, which conveniently started to pop-up ceaslessly with MC's arrival. What I'm trying to say is - people are addicted to knowledge and experiments, I don't believe that entire network consists of people who only can consume and by the time MC arrives there would have been people who tried to cook in all ways possible, but happens they don't want to experiment themselves with ingredients that were on the market. This defies human nature. Otherwise entire network is a bunch of ignorant fools and they don't deserve to read about them. Sure thing they should serve as a contrast to MC, but it's just too much. The only "logical" part should be - the food cooked without recipe will taste bad. But what I don't get is why people eat that and it's being sold while it tastes bad? Like where's logic in that?;
    • Convenient bs of interstellar that authors try to pull;
    • Monopolization by Chef Association. Pointless and s*upid, since there's still nutritient sollutions widely used, so it's the biggest market rival and caring about small anchors is just s*upid...
Dumb water:

    • when authors don't know what to write they start to use lots of water. long sentences that describe every action, lots of chat comments that don't change the weather and worked only when there was a real conflict. but in other cases lots of water. and I don't have a disposition on reading something so empty.
Really so-so and tedious. I really wanted promised cuteness and fluff, but was splashed with water instead.

2.5/5

First of all, let me say that the translator did an outstanding job. The language flowed smoothly, and they provided a lot of info on the actual food through the notes, which was highly appreciated. If I were to judge the novel solely on the translation quality, I'd give it full marks, but I cannot do that.

Although I like food novels, I felt like it got too excessive here. Don't get me wrong, the first dozens chapter were a nice and fun read, but it got boring after a while...... more>>

The unceasing food descriptions didn't really advance the story further at some point. It felt like reading a food blog rather than a romance novel. Plus, it kinda got repetitive... He never faced any kind of challenge regarding his own cooking, which rendered the story bland after 40+ chapters. During his broadcasts he kept making "innovative" dishes which kept getting the highest praises... and that story goes on throughout the entire novel so far.

Moreover, the other elements of the story that are supposed to add to the suspense feel kinda cliché

Spoiler

One of such examples is the following: The villain in this story is a fellow actor who caused his accident that ultimately led to his 5-year coma at the start of the novel. And of course, that villain is s*upid and his plots all fail... All this was resolved in a couple of chapters (although granted, the lead up story has been mentioned in a few sentences throughout the novel)

Another example is the Zerg arc, where an alien insect race starts a war... and of course, our miraculous MC (who's from the technologically less developed ancient Earth times) actually saves the day with his superior knowledge on pesticides... He is able to find the solution to fight against these insects, whereas the scientists of the new world could not. The author explains it by claiming that they have never encountered insects before...

I feel like the author attributed too big of a role to the MC and his food knowledge, and thereby makes the rest of the Empire look s*upid. I feel like a few thousand years of future development should have significantly increased all kind of technologies and knowledge, instead of regressing it..

[collapse]

Yet, I still wanted to persevere, just to see how the romance plays out, because I actually liked the ML. And I feel like he should have gotten more screen time... but alas, he did not. Nevertheless, I did feel gratified when they finally got together (which was reaaaally late too). MC didn't take long to figure out his feelings, and kind of nonchalantly accepted it... which is fine, I guess. But I still wanted more internal struggle because his acceptance just seemed too abrupt. <<less

This novel is good and simple. Reading this can be torture to a hungry stomach. T_T

If you want a novel that is all about the food, this is what you are looking for.

this novel adheres to the principle that cooked food can solve all the problems in the world, and in this case its universal???

this story is pure food p*rn so be prepared for growling stomachs and a bit of drool as the author describes dish after dish in each chapter. So much good food, though I, being in the savory faction, don't care much for all the sweet added into the food since he is "a true Southerner"

the comments from the viewers are interesting and fun usually. I have a few small issues

... more>>
Spoiler

I find his meteoric rise a little fast (his viewership is in the 100, 000s by the third broadcast) and the MC is extremely OP for someone who supposedly decided not to be a cook in his past life, but I can suspend my disbelief since his parents were chefs and he cooked for himself all his life. I find it harder to believe that someone whose body was in a coma for five years and who is as weak and skinny as he's supposed to be would have the physical strength needed for cooking some of those foods since he leaves the hospital so soon after waking and he's waving around that knife and flipping the wok so energetically within a day. Woks are heavy. I'm surprised he could even walk without assistance, though this is the future so *shrug*, I'm trying not to let my own medical training get in the way of enjoying the story.

[collapse]
I do like that he hasn't suddenly become a genius actor just because he gained the body of a film emperor but I stopped at ch40 so it's possible that changes in the future. I decided to wait for the translations instead of plowing ahead because of a few things I didn't really get/ understand that I am hoping will be cleared up in the translation.

entertaining story that will leave you with a growling belly and a hunger for some good Chinese food. <<less

It's a light hearted, fluffy, optimistic novel that is heavily food based. The sort of thing you reach for when bored or want something light to read. While there are loopholes (MC can start cooking straight out of a coma, cooking is basically a lost art, gains followers at the speed of light with very little haters), it doesn't stop the story from being an enjoyable read, but it does overstay it's welcome at the end.

characterizarion wise; MC is pretty down to earth, but quite cheeky and playful. ML is... more>> your typical cool stoic guy, but is quite hilarious once we see more of him. The true stars that made me stick around however, are 100% the netizens and their comments. They're cheeky, funny and all around never fail to lighten up the story.

plot wise though; I must admit I basically skimmed most of the chapters and still got the story. 95% of the novel is just describing MC cook and the other 5% is plot. It's like reading a cookbook with no measurements to the recipes. The MC's too OP, whether it be food or life, he even figures out what can kill the enemy soldiers in a war before everyone else can?? What can't he do?! The ending drags on for quite a bit. There's a pointless tournament arc that has nothing really to do with MC (he's a judge) and then he and ML star on a variety show for no real reason. Overall; it's a good story but be prepared for most chapters to be nothing but the MC talking about how to cook xyz and for those OP skills to grant everything. It's definitely hit or miss because I do like the fact that it focuses on the cooking but those long chapters of nothing but cooking can be grating if you read them all in one go. <<less

The cooking scenes are good at the beginning, since it's a part of the plot, but later it's just pure word padding (boring and waste of time, I'm not here to read cook-book thx)

The plot is so-so, s*upid enemies with OP ML that fully supports MC.

Overall, it's just average.

A Chinese food p*rn story! A bit of drama, a bit of action, a bit of comedy, but a lot of food! Oh and a gradual romance too, one which builds throughout the story. Overall, I would say the story, the characters and the relationships all develop at a natural pace (where besides the futuristic setting, its sorta like slice of life?).

MTLd this story up till chapter 83. If you don't like cooking descriptions this story ain't for you, srsly. I guess about 80% of this story is MC cooking and reactions, and the plot of this novel takes up the rest 20%, so besides the cooking, which sometimes take aaaages and the romance, this story is quite fast-paced.

It's basically a modern day Chinese food blogger (who also knows western food) transmigrating into an ex film emperor in interstellar.

... more>>
Spoiler

This film emperor got into an accident 5 years ago and since then has been in a vegetative state. Turns out earth back when our MC transmigrated was basically destroyed and humans had to leave and venture out into space. But since space is already occupied by all kinds of other lifeforms there was a continuous period of wars, and human kind survived on nutrient fluid for a long time. The time when our MC wakes up is just in time when the human empire experiences peace and are trying to reintroduce natural ingredients into the world, since they now have time and as it turns out, only drinking tasteless fluids is detrimental to mental health. But the problem is, while they can genetically regrow those ingredients, they don't know how to handle them, and in general how to cook. When our MC is released from the hospital he realizes that he's got no money and since the only thing he knows is cooking, he starts a live broadcast. And gets famous instantly, because he cooks well (and you can smell and taste food over a live broadcast) and he knows how to handle potatoes and fish, which even a cooking organization and a research institution can't figure out how to prepare and use properly....

[collapse]

And here we get to the problems I have with this story.

Spoiler

As you can already tell the MC got a huuuge golden finger (in this story his knowledge), is sth the author likes apparently. This isn't inherently bad, but the author does barely anything to build up tension, like srsly everything goes perfectly for the MC, nothing goes wrong at all. And no one really confronts him about the source of his knowledge, or just say they don't care, which tbh doesn't make much sense to me. And does anyone srsly believe that even though they can genetically regrow all kinds of ingredients and have entire institutions and cooks as well as researchers testing these out, they can't figure out that you can eat cucumber raw? And no one at all even dislikes any food MC makes, as soon as they taste his food any slight conflict is resolved... I get that he is an amazing chef, esp for those times, but still.. people have preferences... And even if there is a dangerous or possibly dangerous/bad situation for the MC, you don't even get anxious because you just know that nothing will go wrong, because everything in this story goes his way, 100%. The MC to me is barely characterized through his love for cooking and being generally a good human being. Can't say much about the romance since nothing really happened yet (at ~c80), but I hope the author will give our MC at least some reason to get together with ML in this story. But the MC being barely characterized, and there being no real reason for the MC and ML to get together is sth that I found in another story of the author as well, so this might be a problem I have with the author. Although they do it better in this novel.

The novel is very good on the onset but it does get boring on the advanced chapters.

Very detailed descriptions of the food the MC makes can really be taxing to reader.

Not enough world building as food details. But it did make me hungry to grab a bowl of white, fluffy, tender rice. Mind you MTL keeps translating tender as rotten sooo. hahaha

Spoiler

The author is obviously, painfully Chinese. I really cant get my head around scrambled eggs with chili! Yah... Nope. Bell peppers are more like it. Then we only have steak for western cuisine presented. When's pasta coming around? And I mean the Italian version. And cake Neeeeeds yeast to rise.?? No yeast. No yeast 'restored'. No yeast even mentioned in the food prep. yet they already have the rice cooker cake (made popular by the japanese) ? the text does describe it as fluffy hence my rant.

[collapse]

Anyhows, albeit all these I did really appreciate the author's perseverance to describe everything in painful detail. everytime.

But overall its a nice pasttime read. Romance is slow btw. haha <<less

The translator has done a great job. There are photos and recipes links given by the translator. Excellent work.

Unfortunately, the novel is a letdown. The title makes it clear that its a food novel so the expectations were low. However, the author doesn't even try to write a decent story. The world building, the characters, the face-slapping are all cliche. That's fine. But the romance is bland too. All the characters are flat. The novel is inconsistent on many points. The MC is described as emancipated and then next he... more>> is kneading dough for noodles. OK. Whatever. The ending is so rushed. I guess the author ran out of recipes.

A boring story whose saving grace is the translation. <<less

Like some fellow readers said before this is p*rn food and the romance is slow. It does have some ilogic quirks (like nobody knows how to cook delicious food) but it's still a good relaxing read worth 5 stars. Doesn't have much drama. The MC mother is irksome and a trouble seeking but they deal with her fast.

This story is just boring. At first few chapters it was interesting and it actually seemed to have plot. But very fast it just started to repeat itself and aside from Chinese food is supreme and nothing else can't possibly exist fillers, the villains etc other plot developments vere very cliche and s*upid...

Translation was perfect though.

Anyway this is just too slice of lifey repetitive boring novel with almost non existent plot developments, so I won't waste anymore time with this novel.

It would be great if we could give half ratings. This is a 3.5/5. It's very clear that the author went through a lot of trouble to do their research, because the descriptions of how to cook the food were fairly accurate.

However, that's about where this novel stops. This is essentially a giant cook book, and I found myself skimming over a lot of the methods in later chapters because honestly, I'm not really looking to learn how to stew a rabbit's head. Other than that, not much plot. There's... more>> a few antagonists but they're dealt with in a fairly straightforward manner, no drama at all.

MC and ML are cute, but I don't really know if they cultivated enough feelings to warrant a shotgun wedding. Oh well, to each their own I guess. <<less

Dropped.

It started off rather interesting, but quickly became rather monotonous. It felt like every chapter was basically the same where the MC cooks and his fans praise/are amazed by him. The feeling was a bit novel at first, seeing this guy who used to be a modern day food vlogger wow these future peoples w/ his "ancient" recipes, but it gets really old, really fast when almost EVERY chapter seems to be in the same format.

There are also a lot of inconsistencies about food that kind of really boggles me.... more>> For example if processing foods isn't a thing, how is there vinegar, soy sauce, or flour? You would think, if that were the case, they'd be selling wheat grains in the store... not flour.

This is all very acceptable, I guess, if I found the characters more interesting or even if the relationship was more interesting, but it's not. The characters are rather one dimensional. And at Chapter 30, the romance is basically non-existent.

I love Chinese food--I'm Chinese--and it's interesting reading about how some of the foods are made, but after so many chapters and so many foods, there's no novelty in it. He doesn't really change it up as much. While he's being praised for being so innovative with foods, there's no actual innovation going on. They're all common, modern recipes.

If he'd done a smidgen of what he claims to be famous for in his previous life, that is a Chinese-Western fusion type thing, I'd buy more into it, but so far it's all very classic Chinese recipes. And as much as I love the foods he talks about making, it can only carry a novel so far. If I were only interested in the food, I'd go read a cookbook. And at least in cookbooks, they'll list all the ingredients and the amounts so I could try it out myself. <<less

THE WORLDBUILDING IS LAZY AF!

Urgh. I need to get it out of my head.

At first, I'm kinda okay with everything. The MC isekaid and kinda OP, even in the beginning. It's understandable to do something you know when you unfamiliar with the concept or anything about the world. And since in the past MC familiar with culinary world, it's no problem with that OPness in that aspect.

But, let's be real. He can't cooks anything beside Chinese foods. (I'm really don't mean to dragging Chinese cooking or anything, really. It's just... more>> annoying when he hailed as god of cookery and never even mentioning any foods beside Chinese foods. NOT EVEN MENTIONING. Urgh.)

Not to mention, all the humans are Chinese. It just ridiculous. The author can't even bother to mentioning other human race.

The non-Chinese name that mentioned belongs to non-human race. (Btw, I love Gilbert. And the Rutes. They're hilarious.)

At the beginning, the MC has character, after Water Monsters arc, he became cardboard character. No motivation whatsoever. Everything just conveniently fall into his lap.

The ML. I can't even connect to his character. There's nothing interesting. Just cardboard. Handsome, rich, stoic, influential. (Even his family more memorable than him.)

The romance feels rushed. I can't even bother to cheers for them. One seconds there's not even a hint (or just tiny bit nonsense), the next they're couple!

The world just copy-paste from many trope. Without even attempting to building any narration. I'm lucky familiar with many of the trope, so I can managed to imagine a bit of their world. For first time reader without any familiarity in such trope, it can be very confusing.

And the food. Horrible. (At first it's fine, okay. But the same thing just repeated over and over. It became boring.)

I really want to give this 1 star. But the translation just so good. Thank you, translator. <<less

I accidentally deleted my review, and I don't really feel like writing this again, so I'll write a short summary from my perspective.

A cute fluffy slice of life focused on the food instead of the romance. Extremely slow romance, could be boring for people who don't like slice of lives and cooking novels. Some weird plot holes here and there, but the ML's personality is really good (for me, at least), so I tried my best to not care about the plot holes.

Anyways, I'd recommend this to people who actually... more>> enjoy not having romance for the first 100 chapters of the novel and people who like reading cooking slice of lifes. If you're reviewing, don't count the pace of the novel into the ratings. It's in the tags, after all. Sorry for the bad English and have a nice day. <<less

Spoiler

ML is the same as other damei's. I can't see another trait that could distinguish himself from other ML's, so he comes to the average list to me. Ever since he liked MC cooking, he has become 'interested' in him and that's basically about it. His love for MC felt rushed, which ruins the mood.
Also, his status is the same as other interstellar love interests. Seriously, why can't MLs have a different career!? Scientist? Teacher? Manager? Chef? Where did all this occupation go?! It can't be that only being CEO or GENERAL is the only way for ML to become stand out with his age being younger than most generals? No. It does not.

At this rate, it might be better if there isn't MLs. Because I would prefer friendship and family rather than MLs being bland and become possessive over MC.

As a person who read Chinese novels for quite a long time, there are at least 90% percent types of MLs like this on Romance and BL.

MC
Spoiler

I can't find MCs food is Western-Chinese cuisine. I have eaten Western and Chinese food before and these are not it. It's a common recipe in Modern China, I think.

He has a personality that is different from most people, that is charity. After he has enough money that could let him live his life for over a lifetime, he gave it to others the money that needs them, isn't very greedy over something, and cares for his relative, although it was a short time explanation by the Chinese author.

To be honest here, if I take this realistically, MC can't revive the Cooking Knowledge like soy sauce, ketchup, flour, etc. From the ancient earth unless he knew the ingredients or knows how to make it alternatively. In an interstellar world where they eat artificial foods, how can you find ingredients perfect for it?

More importantly, if you want to make a cooking novel. Make it more interesting and write on how to make these dishes or else I would go to a cookbook and throw it to your author's face. A cooking novel is supposed to be the MC making foods, what's the point if you are making a novel that is 'how to cook' very vague and just say the name of the dish and spice it up with some decorated words?

The translator who translates this novel is pretty good! I could understand what they are saying without me being confused. This is the most crucial part because it would destroy your experience when reading a novel.

All in all, if you are a beginner, I could recommend you to read this. It is fun and enjoyable. You could re-read it many times, but I don't recommend once you have read a novel that is currently has a much more exciting plot and heavily planned or you are an old reader who read so many types like this. <<less
