Why do I love my wok?


Our #GiveawayBreath contest to celebrate the start of Wok Wednesdays shifting to “The Breath of a Wok” ended September 5th.

Beef and Broccoli


It’s a momentous day for Wok Wednesdays. After 4 1/2 years, we’ve stir-fried our way through over 100 recipes from “Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge.” Today is the very last recipe, Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli.

How to cut a mango in under 30 seconds


In New York, every summer the “mango ladies” are out in full force. They’re located downtown, mainly around Union Square and on Broadway. Each woman has a little shopping cart that’s been set up with a makeshift table and it’s amazing to watch them cut a mango in less than 30 seconds. If you want, you can season your mango slices with hot sauce, artificial lemon juice or chili salt. The mangoes are either the Tommy Atkins or Kent variety –not Ataulfo my personal favorite. Still it’s a great healthy snack, rich in beta carotene and vitamin C. It’s an Read More …
