Let’s be clear – when I say ‘Asian’, I mean ‘Asian-inspired’. I have no classical training in Eastern cuisine, or any cuisine for that matter. I’m just a white girl who’s experimented enough in the kitchen to compile a ‘Top 5′ list.

Then if you can get your hands on a wok and learn to take good care of it, you’re really in business.
