Wok on baby….. Pad Thai & a #GIVEAWAY

 Wok on baby….. Pad Thai & a #GIVEAWAY

I’m approached these day to do so much stuff and you know for one reason or another I don’t do it all! BUT when I was approached by Nourish reference a new book which will be launched 17th August I got a little excited. You know the easypeasylemonsqueezy ethos is quick, from scratch, easy recipes? Well we all have a Wok lurking somewhere I’m sure – so why not use it? The wok has been an essential piece of equipment in Asian homes for centuries, yet despite this accent linage, the wok fits perfectly into today’s western style kitchens – so lets do this!

So I have received a few copies of Nicola Graimes new book ‘I Love My Wok’ and I have reviewed and have to say I really do like it, you know me honest! and if I didn’t like it I wouldn’t blog it – it’s that simple.This book showcases simple, beautiful, delicious recipes that can all be made in the Wok. And let’s be careful here, let’s not just think about tasty healthy suppers! The wok is a tremendous tool in the kitchen, we are talking soups, salads and sides too. So check this book out (or have a go at winning one – see under) and rediscover how you can use just one pan to make lots of dishes.

The book is really great and offers over 100 recipes – some of my faves that I’ll be trying are Yakisoda Noodles, Aromatic Chilli Bean Lamb & Sunshine Chicken Stir-Fry – gosh there are so many nice ones.

I tested this Pad Thai – easy and tasty!!
