Chef Ma concentrating at his cooking.

Steven pampered by his lovely assistants as he puzzled out how to cook the dish.

Steven finally caught sight of how Bella halved the eggs.

Steven yelped and just short of stamping his feet in dismay at seeing how the eggs were halved. (should be cut lengthwise)

The girls laughed at Bella's oops and Steven's dismay, while Steven was resigned to having his beautiful plate display spoiled.

These three truly seemed to have fun cooking for the show and got along pretty well.
The girls are so lucky to work with Steven who so conscientiously gave them ample screen time and dialogues.

To make his program special Steven includes these pointers in his show:

A) The proper usage of a word relating to cooking (truly the Orthography King)
1. epi 4 is the word bao = deep fry - people frequently misuse 爆 instead of the correct word 炮

Cooking tips
2. epi 4 to deep fry chicken wings extra crisp - do not wash defrosted wings under running water because the water will then be absorbed inside the meat. Instead, lay the defrosted wings on a towel and pat dry. The towel will absorb the moisture from the wings, thus making them crispier when fry.

3. epi (?) to retain the greenness of leafy veg, add a pinch of sugar to the water.
