  1. Thanks much Sir John for sharing these oil recipes with us. I really love your cooking. I love Chinese cuisine. I'm a half chines half filipina. Everytime u cook I'm curious about that aroma oil. hehe now I know. I'll make this. Take care always Sir. 😘

  2. How long can we keep these oils? I made it after watching this wonderful video, it was very good but the aroma oil started smelling a bit weird after about a month or so….I had kept it in a dark and cool place. Please advise.

  3. I'm curious what the base oil is since "cooking oil" can be any type from vegetable, corn, soybean, sunflower, walnut, sesame oil, or animal fat.

  4. Can chef show us all of your tools on the show, all of them, where can we buy them, and prices. Thanks so much !

  5. Why is the water running endlessly while you are cooking? What, do you think our resources are endless? DISGUSTING.

  6. I have learnt so much from you chef. It is a blessing to learn how to make these rather than getting store bought online stuff where you don't actually know what quality stuff they put in. All respect to Chef John for teaching us how to cook amazing signature oil. 🙏
