Your Dilemma:

You lead a busy life, you come home tired and hungry and want a light dinner that’s easy, fast and healthy to make. You’re sick of  takeouts or eating out.  You’re over the same repertoire.  You hate washing up.  You’re fed up with thinking of what to cook every night. You don’t have time to spend cooking. You think cooking is a chore.

Do any of these ring true for you?

The Solution:
Say hello to wok cooking. My unique cooking class in Miami not only teaches you invaluable skills with an easy roadmap to cooking but I also offer a WOK STAR KIT that will solve your problems all in one place!  No recipes, no measuring, no calorie counting, no culinary knowledge required!

I will show you with only 4 seasonings and a few fresh ingredients, you’ll be able to whip up delicious, one-dish dinners and with very little cleanup!

How is my wok cooking classes different?

Unlike a lot of other instructors, I don’t just walk you through a rigid recipe. Instead, I teach you the skills to create your own unique meals — no recipes required. Through a super-simple visual roadmap technique, I give you the tools you need to feel confident and capable in the kitchen, so you can head home and come up with your own creative concoctions. No stress, no mess. Cooking will become a time to unwind, relax and actually have some fun.

Wok cooking is the solution for busy weeknights!

The secret to kitchen success are the proper tools…

1) the right cast iron wok,

2) an effective heat source,

3) an understanding of technique and

4) some high-quality ingredients.

I’ve put together all 4 elements in a WOK STAR KIT BUNDLE to help you succeed!  You’ll be a Wok Star in no time, and be able to concoct amazing, homemade, one-dish dinners, in 30 minutes or less.

 

 

CREDENTIALS:

My mother originally taught me to cook using a cast iron wok, and now I utilize all the research and expertise I’ve acquired in my wok cooking classes. As a former computer training professional, I have a background in simplifying topics and presenting them in a way that appeals to all audiences. This isn’t greasy food you’d find at a restaurant, so don’t expect any Kung Pao chicken.

My class was voted Top Five Cooking Classes in Miami by New Times, I’ve been mentioned in Saveur’s Miami City Guide and chosen for top 16 dating ideas in Thrillist.  I’ve appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, PlumTV and Chat Chow TV. Plus, I’ve received countless testimonials (see below) from people who say my wok cooking classes changed their entire approach to cooking and eating — the best compliment I could ever ask for!

If you’re looking for healthy cooking classes in Miami, I hope you’ll join me in one soon. Please visit the tabs at the top of this page for Menu, Agenda; Cost, Schedule, Sign Up and Who It’s For! 

Can’t wait to meet you in my next class!

Wok so much…can’t tell you enough how much you have changed my eating habits and inspired so much enjoyment for cooking. :) Eric, OBGYN
I am happy to report that I have already cooked 2 delicious dishes in the wok! You must understand that I hate cooking and this is the first thing that has made me excited about the kitchen in a VERY long time.  Natasha, estate planning. 
Your class was fabulous…We’ve cooked three meals with your wok and instructions and it gets better each day…You added a new dynamic to our home…We’ll be sending you many new Wok Star students in the near future. Thank you again and again….Shelly, ex-restaurant owner.

What’s on the Menu?

We’ll make three dishes demonstrating stir-fry combinations and wok cooking techniques…

Zonin-Astraio-shrimp-stirfryWokStar-ZoninProsecco-Voss-Appetizer-SetupZonin-Chianti-Tilapia

Let me know any food allergies or diet restrictions PRIOR to prepayment and registration, I don’t have ESP but I’m working on it!

Please note: If you have strict dietary requirements, religious restrictions; are salt sensitive, soy sensitive or are pregnant, I am unable to accommodate you with the menu selections due to the nature of this style of wok cooking. Sorry!  If you’re vegetarian or vegan, I can bring tofu but not if you’re soy sensitive.

All dishes use San-J tamari (Japanese soy sauce, non GMO, no MSG, glutenfree), sherry, white pepper, cornstarch and chili sauce with hoisin or brown bean sauce, both contain gluten.

  • Appetizer: Rainbow Lettuce Wrap with organic ground beef and a combination of crunchy, bright colored bell peppers, chayote, jicama, scallions with hoisin sauce & topped with toasted pumpkin seeds.
  • Easy, One-Dish Dinner: Simple Stir fried Bok Choy or Chinese Broccoli, Shrimp, Oyster Mushrooms and Cashews.
  • Versatile Wok Dinner: Tilapia in Spicy Brown Bean Sauce with Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Red Bell Peppers.  Because a cast iron wok is wide and deep, you can easily fill it with sauce to ‘poach’ the fish.

You’ll eat the dishes as soon as they’re cooked so they’re hot and fresh. And you’ll wash everything down with wine and more Voss!

The class menu doesn’t vary much, other than the fact that I switch out a few seasonal vegetables. I teach technique, not recipes. Once you understand my visual roadmap technique, it’s easy to mix and match with different vegetables and meat for a wide variety of dishes.

Agenda for the class…

Upon arrival, you’ll meet and mingle with fellow classmates while savoring my Rainbow Lettuce Appetizer paired with wines and Voss Water.  After introductions…

You’ll learn how to make a basic marinade and sauce,

What the five key points of successful stir frying are and

All about the best Asian food brands and where to find them.

Plus, you’ll head home with a handy wok cooking crib sheet, for future reference.
