It’s been a whirlwind few weeks of film shoots that culminated with a trip to see my friend Sara Moulton for a taping of the fourth season of Sara’s Weeknight Meals for PBS. Last Thursday I was up at 5:45 am to make it to Connecticut in time to shoot my two segments. The show will air in the fall and I’ll keep you posted.
The week before I was shooting our April WeightWatchers.com Stir-Fry Guru videos. I hadn’t seen our terrific film crew in awhile so it was great to have the gang all together again. These videos will go live towards the end of April. The recipes are inspired by spring with inventive ways to stir-fry asparagus, sugar snaps, parsnips, and spring onions. It was a crazy day of shooting where we had to stop so many times because of NYC street noise—-there were sirens, loud snow shoveling, and what felt like endless trucks idling their engines right under my windows. I’m sure when you see the videos you’ll never know.
The other great news is Wok Wednesdays received unbelievable media coverage from Bill Daley of the Chicago Tribune, who wrote a fabulous article about online cooking groups and gave major props to our stir-fry community. I was pleased and proud that several food photos from our members were included in the article. Wok Wednesdays is about to turn two years old in another month and it’s amazing we’re nearing 500 members strong, stir-frying their way through my book Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge . I’m including the link for the Facebook page as that’s where the majority of the action takes place but for the rules check out the Wok Wednesdays page. If you’re new to stir-frying this is stress-free way to get started.
When I have time, I try to provide cyber wok therapy and stir-fry guidance. We stir-fry every other Wednesday. So whether you’re a wok newbie or an experienced wokker join the fun and go stir-fry crazy!
