Asian cuisine has never been so popular in the UK – especially eating out or opening an app to order a take-away – but when it comes to home dining over the Christmas and New Year period, party hosts regularly choose to pick up pre-prepared Asian finger food in-store instead of making from scratch. For many of course this will be for convenience, but for those looking to broaden their adventures in the kitchen, there may be some hesitancy over ‘getting it right’ or making a dish taste and look authentic. The traditional Boxing Day buffet is a prime example. A chance for keen home chef’s to go wild on their worktops perfecting a memorable themed feast for their family to enjoy, but sadly the reality usually ends up being a traditional serving of the leftover turkey sandwich’s from the day before.
Well, all that is about the change for 2018 thanks to celebrity chef Jeremy Pang’s School of Wok. An Asian specialist cookery school located in London’s Covent Garden.
