Boy, cannot wait to see the absolute cringefest that we're gonna see on video. She doesn't watch anime, let alone plays videogames. She only like the anime uwu aesthetic and shops by "newest anime" on taobao.
Usually, when I comment, I try to criticize in a proper manner, explaining why I find some things bad/off whatever but in this video I have nothing to say because that random clip of Yumi asking about the dessert and Scott dancing in an autistic way (no, not in the insulting way, I really believe he has some kind of disfunction) kinda destabilized me. They're not even that odd clips but they're just out of place, it's disturbing.
Plus, Scott to me sounds like a slightly more sane Chris Chan....
I'm forever crying at american-italian recipes but I guess it can be helped. Just like we don't have stuff like "fettuccine alfredo" or spaghetti and meatballs here. Just a tip for you people overseas: usually, every italian region has its own recipes and they're very strict, a quick google search should clarify every doubt, but usually you don't put pesto (which is a northern ingredient) with orecchiette and spicy stuff (which is southern). Pesto is very delicate and holds a lot of flavor from basil and cheese, mixing it with spicy pepper from the south is gonna nullify both flavours >_> But whatever you like, eh.
Yeah, obviously, I'm not a star-ed chef but after eating some recipes everyday you get a grasp on what has to be made in order to follow a recipe and what not. That's something an hungry italian would make at 2AM with leftover ingredients while stoned.
Let me correct her on this mess. Yours truly, as already stated, it's italian because I have this bad habit of stating it (for example, while saying that my english is not good, that's it), so *cracks knuckles* let's dissect this mess.
First of all, I laugh at the fact that she tried not to make your stereotypical italian spaghetti and meatballs ayyyy but she made the first recipe that came up while searching "italian food that's not spaghetti" (literally googled this https://www.cucchiaio.it/ricetta/ricetta-orecchiette-broccoli/) But she failed, AGAIN. Orecchiette (little ears) is apulian. She made them with pesto, which is from Genoa, on the opposite side of Italy. While it still may be yummy, I viewed this as a poor attempt to mix up whatever had the "italian" label in the stores. Sigh. She made them with pesto and they still look dry af. Pasta sauce are for making, obviously, the pasta more creamy and more enjoyable. She stills fails at making it a little creamy. Ughh... The she adds the broccoli and cooked sausage. Yea yea, look how italian this sausage is, too bad it's dry. And the she mixes all this disgusting circurs with parmesan. You usually use pecorino but w/e, it's Yumi King we're talking about and most importantly, you don't put the cheese in the whole condiment. You put it on the plate after you have your portion served, so you can choose how cheesy you want your pasta. Plus, Korean hot sauce? CLASSIC ITALIAN Let's finish with oreos. Ah yea, a classic of the italian cuisine (We didn't have oreos till 2008 here....). Even a dollar store tiramisu could have been better.
Sorry for the rant but this really grinded my spicy gears. Yea, maybe I'm crying too much, because "I could be bad too at cooking asian food" but I'm not a Youtuber who's trying to teach people how to cook stuff I don't know jack shit about....
I would prefer a thousand times more an actual weeaboo Yumi. She WANTS to give off the anime loving girl image uwu but she just likes the aesthetics. Nothing wrong, just don't act you're some pro cosplayer o anime fan. And I'm not saying this as a weeb but because it's annoying to see her bragging about her interests when she can't do shit (she cant cook, clean, cosplay etc).
Deep down, I hope one day she "wakes up" and stops with the cutesy act and her cheapness, realizing she wasted the younger years of her life with plastic clothes and being unable to do anything and will try to fix it before it's too late. I want to see a video of hers where she just donates/throws out all her clothes and goes to a normal store, I really REALLY want to see it. "Young Girls shopping! | Husband takes me to the mall!| Wardrobe Replacement Operation!" A tacky, 90's style montage of her trying out different outfits at H&M's would be much more entertaining than all her sponsored stuff
Holy shit, the speed up sounds and her whispering is SO creepy, I get spooped easily but c'mon! Floss isn't usually minty? Doesn't that make the eggs taste terribly? Use a knife, goddamn, That's not a life hack, it's a stupid hack. Uggghh the spoon grinding on the knife!!! Also, her laughter is so fake and breathy and her pitched up voice hurts as much as the spoon sound
