To cook along with us you really only need to do three things:
- Get The Book: The Breath of a Wok, by Grace Young
- Get A Wok: Grace recommends a flat-bottomed, 14″ carbon-steel wok with a long wooden handle. DO NOT BUY A NON-STICK WOK. They’re not worth your money!
- Join The Facebook Group: While we host Wok Wednesdays here on the blog, most of the discussion happens in our Facebook group. There you can connect with fellow wokkers, ask questions, and share photos. www.facebook.com/groups/WokWednesdays
