Welcome to Wok Wednesdays!

Wok Wednesdays is a group of wok enthusiasts who are cooking their way through Grace Young’s cookbook Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge, winner of the James Beard Best International Cookbook Award. Anyone is welcome to join; we try new recipes twice a month.

The group was started by Matt Lardie, author of Eat, Write Go.

Questions? Comments? E-mail and put “Wok Wednesdays” in the subject line.

Wok Wednesdays Jargon

Confused by the shorthand? Here’s a breakdown:

  • Wokkers – Those of us cooking our way through Stir Frying to the Sky’s Edge.
  • LYL – Leave Your Link: these are the posts where participants leave a link to their blogpost featuring that week’s recipe.
  • Q&C – Questions & Comments: these are posts where participants can leave questions or give advice prior to a recipe’s due date.
  • Debrief: these are posts after the recipe due date where participants can reflect on the recipe, comment on other folks’ experiences, etc.
  • SFTTSE – Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge, the book we’ll be cooking from!
