        This would be a very interesting series. Doesn't have to be just Andy, it could involve all of the test kitchen stars :p
        African, Korean, Mexican, Filipino, Lebanese, Indian, Pakistani, you name it.

            Living in China and watching this makes for a very strange experience.

                  The best part about this is after all the Sichuan food I've had over here, the real chefs don't douse the food in oil like a lot of places do. I always hate it when I get my 回锅肉 come in an oil soup. It makes the dish so soggy and unappealing even though the flavors are good.

                    I like when foods are sweet savory and spicy and very filling. You know when you're full but just can't stop eating it because it's so delicious 😋

                        I grew up with german food and love vinegar. I want to try the black vinegar.

                            Seeing Andy struggle like that makes me pretty proud of myself. Of course, I started learning Chinese cooking in my middle teens. But I did teach myself Szechuan style on my own to add it to my Chinese cooking classes. Love the fish flavor or the strange flavor. Once I had tasted them, they took the place of a lot of my Cantonese style cooking. It's a great cuisine. Thanks.

                                    if you can't make the flame bigger.. you can make the serving smaller :) should be the same effect :)

                                          “can i use this knife” Andy knows👍👍 you know how chefs are sensitive about that. 😂

                                              Andy kept thinking the vegetables go in last, it actually goes before the sugar and soy sauce. The sugar helps coat and melt into everything to make it into a more balanced dish

                                                      Watching this was a religious experience.
                                                      I love the respect Andy has for the kitchen and the chef.
                                                      The part where the chef said he was satisfied just by looking at Andy eat the ducks head was perfect. (:

                                                          Thanks to you guys, I tried twice-cooked pork in authentic chinese restaurant during my vacation and it was legit. Beside Fish fragrant eggplants and mapo tofu, Twice-cooked pork is now my favorite sichuan food!

                                                            Honestly i think this may be the best series BA has. I love how the super-taster Chris is there at the end to rate Andy's food. Ugh, this is too much goodness. Andy is super respectful, yet honest about this emotional ride for him, and Chris is there to relate back to how every chef is a person still discovering food. BA is climbing the ranks and is really becoming one of my favourite YouTube channels! Thank you for all the laughs and inspiring moments BA.

                                                                Fish fragrant Eggplant is literally the best. I have lived in China for a couple years and you are missing out if you don't try the eggplant. Something that is so foreign to us westerners yet Sooooo amazing. First time i had it my mind was blown.

                                                                                          This really shows the craftsmanship and skill which goes into Chinese cooking, which Westerners so frequently write off as in some way ‘lesser’ than French or Italian or American food. It’s heartening to see BA introduce Chinese cuisine to their audience, who may not truly understand or appreciate it.
