COOK LIKE A WOK STAR
Transform Your Cooking Experience
Fast, Easy, Healthy, No-Recipe Cooking Class with Eleanor Hoh
A perfect solution for busy lifestyles and adaptable to any diet!
Join me for a UNIQUE EXPERIENCE in beautiful spaces in Miami, learn my NO recipe, NO measuring and Creative techniques so you’ll be a STAR, a WOK STAR!
For my first class, I collaborated with a beautiful restaurant, B Bistro & Bakery in Coconut Grove (my adopted city). I chose this because Chef Henry Hini’s approach to cooking reflects my philosophy…use simple ingredients to engage your senses and tickle your taste buds. And, their personnel are just so lovely. You’ll get to meet them and you’ll return to experience their amazing breakfast, lunch and famous brunch specialities.
Ready to SIMPLIFY your cooking, stop stressing about meal prep, meal kits, never worry about “what’s for dinner”, eat healthy and enjoy quality time with family and friends?
I’ve taught hundreds over the last 25 years who’ve struggled with not knowing what to cook, not having enough time, hating clean up or eating alone.
For me, cooking sparks fond and delicious memories of cooking with my mom and sisters, and conversations around the dining table, a tradition I want to pass onto you.
What makes my Wok Star cooking class different?
My NO RECIPE, NO MEASURING TECHNIQUE requires only ONE CLASS vs learning just a few recipes and have to keep taking classes to learn more recipes.
I’m not a chef and never attended culinary school, I’m a Wok Star and I’ll show ANYONE can be one! I learned to cook from my mom whose instructions were, “it’s just a little bit of this and a little bit of that,” you’ll learn to cook and improvise like her except simpler and easier.
You’ll learn to…
• riff off your own creations like a rock star
• apply my technique to any recipe or ethnic dishes you enjoy
• focus on FLAVORS, TEXTURES & COLORS
• boost and maintain your health
• use only 4 seasonings and a few fresh ingredients
• whip up dishes in under 30 minutes
Why do I use a wok to cook with?
My mother originally taught me to cook using a cast iron wok and I’ve discovered it’s the best pan for cooking most anything. High heat and fast cooking techniques make cooking with a wok extremely efficient and practical. Cast iron gives flavor, texture and color to your food, so important if you want tasty food.
MAKE MAGIC IN YOUR KITCHEN…
My secret to making magic in the kitchen is having the right tools and techniques to help you succeed. Now you’ve learned some techniques, you’ll need some tools, that’s why I put together a Wok Star Kit. It has everything you need to put into practice what you learned and will be available for purchase.
You’ll want to show off your Wok Star talents and get complimented, so invite your family and friends to help in the dinner prep! Best part is creating yummy and memorable experiences you’ll never forget, PRICELESS!
Surprise vegetables to show how to mix and match
Protein like shrimp, fish, chicken, turkey

Feedback from my class…
“Your class was great! I was able to implement what I learned that day and used my wok that very same evening to cook up a delicious dinner! Both husband and 4 year old ate their veggies without any complaints :-)” Annika, nutritionist
“I’m very excited to get started using the wok. I’m a registered dietitian, a professor at Boise State University and I also do counseling for patients (weight control, diabetes, high cholesterol, etc). I think I could get my patients and students to eat more vegetables and lean meats/fish if they had an easy way to do it. I think this could do it for them. But I need to be proficient to be convincing. Can’t wait to get my KIT. Thanks,” Leisa, dietitian
“Many thanks for putting this wonderful product (and learning) out there for us. I liked how you set the stage for having a proper wok and good stove. We’re doing our best to eat better, healthier food. Hopefully we can reduce some calories with this style of cooking. Thanks again for helping us on our way to healthier, and tastier, eating! Best Regards,” Joe, aerospace engineer.

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.
Here’s a funny perspective of my class from Miami New Times.
10 Things I Learned in Eleanor Hoh’s Wok Star Cooking Class.
What’s on the Menu?
We’ll make three dishes demonstrating stir-fry combinations
and wok cooking techniques.
The class menu doesn’t change much except switching seasonal vegetables. Feel free to BYOB (BRING YOUR OWN WINE)! We’ll have glasses.
Let me know any food allergies or diet restrictions PRIOR to payment and registration…see menu below.
I teach technique, NOT recipes.
Anyone with shrimp or serious food allergies that require an epi pen should NOT attend this class.
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!
Vegetarian or vegan? I can bring tofu but not if you’re soy sensitive.
All dishes use some of these seasonings, I’ve provided their websites so you can check ingredients in detail. I use only the best! I also use garlic and ginger, scallions in ALL dishes.
San-J tamari (Japanese soy sauce, non GMO, no MSG, glutenfree), sherry, white pepper, cornstarch.
Koon Chun’s hoisin and brown bean sauce, non GMO, no MSG, both contain gluten.
Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce has NO MSG.
- Appetizer: Rainbow Lettuce Wrap with ground turkey 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, Shitake Mushrooms and Cashews.
- Versatile Wok Dinner: Corvina or 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.
Agenda for the class…
Upon arrival, you’ll meet and mingle with fellow classmates while savoring my signature Rainbow Lettuce Appetizer.
Is this a hands on class?
This is a Master Class, it’s very interactive but NOT hands on, you won’t have a station each nor will there be any chopping. Many guests will have a turn to stir fry with their own wok and gas stove and practice how to stir fry like a pro!
After introductions, you’ll learn…

Due to the Corona pandemic, all physical classes are cancelled until further notice.
Good news though, I’m excited to create Zoom LIVE classes so anyone from anywhere can join me!
It’s been my dream to reach a worldwide audience.
A virtual class does away with travel, baby sitter issues, so many obstacles to coming to a physical class. I have over 500 on my wait list who’ve not made it to my class all these years. So, I really, really hope a virtual class will make it more convenient and practical for you to attend!
Watch this space for upcoming schedule.
My physical class took 3 hours because there was chatting, eating etc.
I already have a ONE HOUR Digital Class on Udemy which is a superb option. CLICK HERE for more details!
I think people’s attention span is so stretched, I think maybe 1 1/2 hours is good so there’s time for Q&A.
I’d also like to give CREATIVE classes for Wok Stars (people who’ve taken my class and have my KIT) and focus more on the CREATIVE THOUGHT PROCESS – Idea and Execution. Fun and resourceful ways to cook!
Those are just some ideas, feel free to share your thoughts in comments below and do it soon, thanks in advance. See you at a class!
Here are wonderful experiences from food bloggers who’ve attended my classes…
