It’s fair to say that Gok Wan has become a national treasure as the fab fashion-god who exposed our bums, tums and thighs in the name of confidence. But did you know that under those trendy glasses and megawatt smile lies an amazing Chinese chef?
His fantastic new cookbook fuses his knowledge of classic Asian cooking with a modern lifestyle, giving you over 80 fresh and tasty recipes.
In his second book Gok draws influence from all over Asia to create quick meals with maximum satisfaction. He also includes classic recipes from his childhood and a chapter dedicated to Anglo-Asian cuisine.
As for the food itself, we love the duck buns with wasabi coleslaw. Beautiful sandwiches packed with soft duck and spicy slaw. They are full of classic Asian flavours served up western style.
For something with a bit more body he’s got a whole list of curries to choose from, but the classic Japanese staple Chicken Katsu is always a winner. Serve it up for a quick but delicious midweek meal with flavours you’d expect to get from slow-cooking achieved in half the time.
For dessert he has a wonderfully refreshing mango and lemon grass sorbet that balances the flavour of the sweet mango and fragrant lemon grass.
For a combination of Asian flavours Gok’s got you covered, so open up this awesome book and get your wok out!
