  • 00:15:00 This video explains how a cook can make a soup-like broth using just cheese and water. The tomato is a discordant flavor that is not found in the broth my grandmother makes. My mother says that if my grandmother has 93 years, she can't omit the tomato. I, on the other hand, think that if the broth tastes good, then adding tomato is not necessary. Freudianism does not exist in the kitchen, where there was my father. There was cheese that lasted a long time. Echaying water makes the cheese last even longer. There are people who put a fried egg in the soup and that is the first time that I cooked. The kitchen of my memory is like a ranch kitchen. Normally, they put raw potatoes in the soup. But, the key to the soup is the cheese. If one imagines people living in a traditional Hispanic ranchería, they would eat this soup with tortillas made from flour, beans, and salt. I am my father and my mother's brother. I am the one who makes the soup for them, and I do it better than they do. I value this soup so much that I would even drink it. I have a hard time describing it in words
