nd Layer,’ right?”

Wen Zhecheng nodded, “Yes.”

The program team had informed Xi Lin in advance, so he asked, “When was the last time you had mille-feuille, Teacher Wen?”

Wen Zhecheng glanced at Rong Yuheng, “About half a month ago.”

“Teacher Wen, do you usually go out to buy desserts yourself? I can’t quite picture that scene.”

“Not buying, Rong Rong made it for me.”

The other three guests on stage who hadn’t received the script were puzzled: …?

Xi Lin handed the microphone to Rong Yuheng, “So, did Yuheng make it himself or buy it?”

Rong Yuheng leaned over, “When you’re giving a gift to Teacher Wen, you should make it yourself.”

A smile appeared on Wen Zhecheng’s lips…

Trying not to look at Wen Zhecheng’s triumphant expression, Xi Lin continued with the script, “Does Yuheng know how to make desserts?”

Rong Yuheng answered, “During my studies abroad, I took culinary classes focused on desserts and Western cuisine.
I learned it then, but I wasn’t very good at it.
Teacher Wen kindly accepted what I made.”

Rong Yuheng finished, and just as Wen Zhecheng had been sparing with his words earlier, he now spoke up on his own initiative, “It was really delicious, and I ate it all.”

Rong Yuheng shyly lowered his head, “Don’t overpraise it, you are someone who has seen the world.”

The onlookers couldn’t help themselves, “Pff… hahaha!”

Rong Yuheng’s disguise was partially lifted, and that was enough for now.

Accepting something new always involves a process, and timing and approach are both crucial.


After the interactive segment, the five guests entered the recording area.

Before entering, Rong Yuheng turned to Wen Zhecheng and reminded him, “Remember to be lively, try to get more camera time, okay?”

Hearing this, Duan Xiu and Zhou Yin, who were walking ahead, turned back in shock: This newcomer is actually advising Wen Zhecheng on how to perform!

Then they saw Wen Zhecheng peek his head out, “I’ll do my best.”

Duan Xiu and Zhou Yin were even more astonished, “…”

Rong Yuheng couldn’t gauge the shock the two had just experienced, but he did admire how easygoing and cooperative this year’s Film Emperor was.

As the five of them entered, the door closed behind them.

The theme of this episode was unexpectedly “Gourmet Food.” The first room was designed as a Chinese-style kitchen, with a wooden frame structure and two wooden long tables on either side against the wall.
Several dishes were placed on them, covered with half-moon-shaped lids.

The aroma wafted out from under the lids, and Rong Yuheng was nearly drooling in an instant!

He reached out and lifted the lid of the nearest dish, revealing a plate of glossy red braised pork with two sprigs of mint leaves on top.
Under the light, it looked appetizing.

Rong Yuheng turned to Su Yuyin with a mischievous smile, “Su Ge—”

Su Yuyin couldn’t meet his gaze, “Don’t just think about eating.
We should…”

Before he could finish, he saw Wen Zhecheng also approaching.
Pointing to a piece of meat in the dish, he suggested to Rong Yuheng, “This one tastes great.”

Rong Yuheng nodded as if he was an expert, “Impressive~”

Su Yuyin’s unfinished words got stuck in his throat, “…”

Fortunately, Rong Yuheng had been on two previous episodes, so he knew to look for clues.
After a quick glance, he sighed in regret, “Forget it, let’s find clues first.
It wouldn’t be good if we ate the clue.”

Su Yuyin looked relieved, and before he could arrange anything else, Wen Zhecheng chimed in, “Let’s hurry, or the food will get cold.”

Su Yuyin was once again left speechless.

What? So the ultimate goal is to eat, and the show is just a side thing? 

Duan Xiu and Zhou Yin were simply amazed: Wen Zhecheng was indeed very lively!

The little theater antics of Rong Yuheng and Wen Zhecheng, who kept everyone on their toes, temporarily ended, and everyone got back into the game.

There were eight dishes on the two tables, four on each side.
On the right were: braised pork, pea and sausage simmered rice, stir-fried pig’s head meat, mustard greens and tofu soup; on the left were: mung bean stewed pig trotters, bamboo shoots stewed beef, angelica and ginseng soup, and braised lion’s head.

Zhou Yin couldn’t help but make a “gululu” sound…

Rong Yuheng quickly caught on and teased, “Zhou Yin, do you want to eat too?”

Zhou Yin immediately covered her ears, “I’m not listening!”

Duan Xiu sincerely advised, “You might as well plug your nose.”


“…”

While Su Yuyin and the others were being unadventurous, he had already pulled out a bamboo basket, filled with a few pairs of couplets.

“Come take a look!”

The four of them immediately gathered around.

They unfolded the couplets, all of them joyful blessings: “May all your wishes come true,” “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” “Good luck is ahead”…

As Rong Yuheng was examining them, Wen Zhecheng bumped into him and whispered, pointing to the door frame leading to the next room, “There are marks on both sides of the door frame.
It looks like you can stick the couplets there.”

Rong Yuheng squinted and found it to be true!

He shot Wen Zhecheng an appreciative look, “Truly worthy of our Teacher Wen!”

Su Yuyin turned towards them upon hearing this, “What did Teacher Wen say?”

Wen Zhecheng gestured to the door frame, succinctly saying, “Couplets.”

Yang Wen, behind the monitor, muttered to himself, “…”

He felt like bowing to Wen Zhecheng – if the footage shown to the camera had half as much of the whispered interactions between him and Rong Yuheng, the post-production work wouldn’t have been so difficult!

Unaware of Yang Wen’s inner turmoil, Wen Zhecheng completed his “significant discovery” and then retreated, starting to search for other clues.

Walking alongside Rong Yuheng, he quietly praised him, “You’re actually quite suited for this show.
I was worried you wouldn’t adapt well to variety.”

Wen Zhecheng’s words reminded him of his earlier conversation with Xiao Tang.

As he turned the plates on the table in search of clues, he continued, “I also thought I wouldn’t fit, but Xiao Tang told me that I’ve become more suitable for variety.”

After finishing his sentence, he glanced at the “culprit” responsible for all this, clearing his throat and adding a hint of playfulness, “Xiao Tang said that when the two of us are together, it’s quite appetizing.”

Rong Yuheng was examining the bottom of a plate, and after pondering for a couple of seconds, he said, “I understand what she means.”

“You understand?” Wen Zhecheng’s face suddenly felt a bit warm.
He sneakily glanced at their three teammates who were studying the couplets not far away and took a step closer to Rong Yuheng, “Then tell me.”

Before Rong Yuheng could respond, they heard cheers from their three teammates on the other side, as if they had collectively unraveled a clue.
It was a stark contrast to the main duo standing here looking foolishly at the plates!

“…”

Rong Yuheng sighed, amid the background noise of his teammates celebrating, and held the plate in his hand as he approached Wen Zhecheng.

“The two of us are appetizing, isn’t that like a dish?”

Author’s Note: Rong Yuheng (Proud Sea Otter): I get it again~

Wen Zhecheng (Squealing Groundhog): You still don’t get it!
