COOK LIKE A WOK STAR

Fast, Easy, Healthy, No-Recipe Cooking Class with Eleanor Hoh

Wanna be a rock star in the kitchen with adoring fans?

Then join me for a UNIQUE EXPERIENCE in beautiful design showrooms and learn my style of cooking that will transform your dinners and make you a STAR, a WOK STAR!

It’s PERFECT for busy lifestyles and ADAPTABLE to any diet.

Unable to attend? Take my Online class, details below. 

My goal is to help you succeed, I’ve taught thousands over the last 17 years who’ve struggled with…

wanting fast, healthy, easy dinners when you get home tired and hungry

wanting to lose weight and not succeeded with other diets

wanting to stir fry like a pro and tried every permutation of wok and stove setup but flavors are blah and food sticks.

Hi, I teach in upscale kitchen design showrooms in S. Florida and will be uploading classes to online learning sites. So, take a class with me soon.  WokStarKitBundle-7812

What makes my Wok Star cooking class different?
I’m teaching TECHNIQUE so you only need 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 you how ANYONE can be one! I learned to cook from my mom whose instructions were, “it’s just a little bit of this and that.”  

SO, HOW WILL YOU BECOME A WOK STAR?
I’ve SIMPLIFIED COOKING with a FUN TECHNIQUE and the RIGHT TOOLS.

You’ll be able to…
riff off your own creations like a jazz musician, NO recipes or measuring required.

apply my technique to any recipe or ethnic dishes you enjoy.

make dishes with only 4 seasonings and a few fresh ingredients.

stir fry like a pro with one-dish dinners in under 30 minutes.

 

CONFUSED BY THE TYPE OF WOK, HEAT, TECHNIQUE AND INGREDIENTS?
I’ll explain 4 ESSENTIAL elements to help you succeed AND I’ve put them all in a WOK STAR KIT BUNDLE which will be available for purchase so you can put into practice what you learned and start cooking right away when you get home.

Watch this and you’ll understand why I do what I do…

The most common complaints I hear about weeknight cooking?
– I don’t have enough time
– I don’t know what to cook?
– I hate cleaning up
– I’m sick of eating out
– I don’t like eating alone

I overcome those complaints by showing…
no-recipes, no-measuring, no-experience are necessary
– you only need 4 seasonings for big flavors
– tools and techniques to help you succeed
– most importantly, how to have FUN!

I’ll deal with complaints from those who’ve done some wok cooking…
– why are my veggies so soupy?
– can I use my wok on my electric stove?
– why does food stick in my wok?

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. A cast iron wok gives flavor, texture and color to your food, so important if you want tasty food.

SUCCESS STORIES…
It’s so rewarding to hear from people who say my cooking techniques have TRANSFORMED their entire approach to cooking and eating — the best compliment I could ever ask for.

I love hearing success stories from corporate executives who find my easy style of cooking actually relaxing or from those who’ve lost weight who never liked eating vegetables now enjoy crispy, yummy vegetables or from wok enthusiasts who’ve tried every permutation till they started using my WOK STAR KIT & GAS STOVE SETUP and finally succeeded in getting their stir fry with authentic flavors and my favorite are single guys who’ve impressed their dates with their slicing, dicing and stir fry skills while keeping it healthy!

For me, cooking sparks fond and delicious memories of cooking with my mom and sisters, and conversations around the dining table, a legacy I want to pass onto you.

Ready to SIMPLIFY your cooking, never worry about “what’s for dinner”, eat healthy and spend quality time with family and friends, sign up for a class!

I love hearing  from folks who’ve attended my classes, keep them coming… 

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…

Anyone with shrimp or serious food allergies that require an epi pen should NOT attend this class. 

Let me know any food allergies or diet restrictions PRIOR to prepayment and registration, I may NOT be able to accommodate you…

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 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 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.

The class menu doesn’t change much except switching seasonal vegetables. I teach technique, NOT recipes.

Agenda for the class…

Upon arrival, you’ll meet and mingle with fellow classmates while savoring my Rainbow Lettuce Appetizer paired with Barton & Guestier’s vouvray or rose wine.

Is this a hands on 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…

I’ll explain my easy roadmap approach to wok cooking.

Then I’ll move onto Asian cutting techniques.

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 receive a digital cooking crib sheet, for future reference.
