Celebrity Chef Ken Hom To Support Launch Of Oriental Culinary Institute From School Of Wok

I first met the delightful Ken Hom many moons ago at Yellow River in Canary Wharf – with some of the best Chinese food I’ve ever tasted – even the prawn crackers were incredible. He’s a superstar – starting with the iconic Ken Hom’s Chinese Cookery TV series back in 1984,  his woks have been the no. 1 leader in the UK ethnic cookware market for over 20 years, he has collaborated with the world’s greatest chefs in hotels and restaurants  and cooking for Heads of State  – regarded as the world’s leading authority in Chinese cookery.

Ken Hom OBE has agreed to host a rare  public  Masterclass in support and celebration of the launch of The Oriental Culinary Institute (OCI) on Friday 28 November  2014 – a new venture from School of Wok.

Teaching the art of Oriental and Asian cuisine in the heart of London’s Covent Garden, School of Wok was founded and run by TV chef Jeremy Pang to specialise in accredited professional training,  for  those with a dream to maybe run a street food café, those looking to change careers and train professionally as a chef, or simply those who want to learn the secrets behind the doors of a dim sum kitchen. It’s a healthy way to cook, too – don’t forget the Chinese do not boil their vegetables to death, but rather add sauces to enhance them – such as black bean, curry etc.

The OCI will provide three-week courses in Oriental and Asian cookery, as well as private consultancy, chef training and bespoke one-to-one learning in a professional environment and state-of-the-art kitchen. It will also provide the understanding and focus on kitchen organisation and preparation in a commercial environment, essential for any professional chef.

This one-off Ken Hom Masterclass on 28 November runs between 6 and 9 pm and is priced at £250 per person inclusive of all materials, food and drink.

The Oriental Culinary Institute and School of Wok are located at 61 Chandos Place, Covent Garden, London WC2N 4HG Tel: 020 7240 8818 www.schoolofwok.co.uk  www.orientalculinaryinstitute.com https://www.facebook.com/OCILondon
