KEN HOM'S - QUICK WOK
Cooking quickly comes naturally with the wok.
The hot temperatures and ease of use make using the wok ideal for modern life. As time becomes more valuable, elaborate meals with many courses are rarer or are relegated to long weekends.
However, good food is essential for health and well-being. No ready-cooked meal can take the place of fresh food cooked with love, nor can it replace the comforting smell of fresh vegetables simply stir-fried with garlic or ginger. At the end of the day, it comes down to quality of life versus compromise.
Quick cooking does not imply bad cooking.
It is a matter of organization, the right recipes and experience. That is what this book is all about: using the wok in a sensible and easy manner.
Once your shopping and preparation are done, the cooking in most cases is literally a matter of minutes. Some recipes may require marinating to infuse the food with the necessary flavour for a delicious meal.
Certain recipes have a stage up to which they can be prepared in advance. This is indicated by the symbol P, and additional information is given where required.
It all adds up to great, tasty food without compromise. With my busy lifestyle, I find that using the wok is the perfect answer to today's fast-pace demands. Use these quick recipes in good health!
