Grace Young en Cooking with a Wok <div class="field field-type-text field-field-original-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Speed Wok </div> </div> </div> <p>My mother was raised in Shanghai and my father in Guangzhou, but by the time they started their life together in America, in 1949, they no longer cooked with a wok. Round-bottomed woks, the only kind they could find, didn’t get hot enough for stir-frying on their all-American electric range. So they resorted to a stainless-steel skillet for Chinese cooking. My father lamented as he served his exquisite, fragrant dishes that the food hadn’t been “properly” stir-fried.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Grace Young </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Why Grace Young thinks a wok cooks the ultimate stir-fry. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-standard"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> September/October 2011 </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Healthy Stir-Fry Recipes &amp; More </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/30_minute_stir_fry_recipes">30-Minute Stir-Fry Recipes</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/easy_stir_fry_recipes">Easy Stir-Fry Recipes</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/easy_vegetarian_stir_fry_recipes">Easy Vegetarian Stir-Fry Recipes</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/healthy_stir_fry_recipes_with_beef">Healthy Stir-Fry Recipes with Beef</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/healthy_stir_fry_recipes_with_chicken">Healthy Stir-Fry Recipes with Chicken</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/kitchen_product_reviews/the_best_wok_and_how_to_season_a_wok">The Best Wok and How to Season a Wok</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> Grace Young September/October 2011 Healthy Cooking - Healthy Cooking 101: Basics & Techniques Thu, 29 Sep 2011 18:49:19 +0000 Sarah Hoff 17833 at
