About the workshop
The wok is a versatile round-bottomed pan which originated in China. Here in Shanghai, it is considered to be one of the most common cooking tools, and is used widely in East Asia and Southeast Asia. Since its invention around 2,000 years ago (although some will disagree, saying no more than 500 to 1,000 years ago), this versatile piece of cookware has become a very popular niche cooking tool throughout a large part of the industrialized world.
Woks can be used for stir-frying, steaming, pan frying, deep frying, poaching, boiling, braising, searing, stewing, making soup, smoking, and even roasting nuts! Actually, the word ‘wok’ literally translates to “cooking pot” in Cantonese. The same pot is called a Kuo in Mandarin, and a Kuali in multiple Asian languages.
So, ever wondered what the art behind Chinese Wok Cooking entailed? Look no further! Join our Chinese Wok Class, held in the middle of Shanghai's beautiful French Concession, to learn all about the woks of life.
