Top Ten Tips for Your Next Stir Fry
+Jeremy Pang top ten tips to creating the most sumptuous stir fry

Stir fries are a quick, healthy and economic one-pot wonder. But they should not be considered just ‘student food’ despite their understandable popularity amongst younger cooks. They are delicious meals in their own right, though they are also a great way to use up leftover bits and bobs you find in the fridge, as well as a way to deliver otherwise unappealing vegetables to a fussy eater.

Give them a try and let us know how your next one goes!

Top Five Healthy Asian Dishes
Our selection of delicious healthy dishes

Check out the blog this week for School of Wok's top five #healthy   dishes we love to #cook   and eat at anytime, but especially on those days when we are eyeing up those skinny jeans or are need of a boost of #fresh   flavours to clear out the cobwebs and get us going.

Hard to believe from these photos that they would ever fall into the same 'healthy' category as a boring old rice cake isn't it?
