Cooking Cantonese food can be overwhelming

Recipes are a great place to start...

...But they don't cover everything:

  • I keep wasting ingredients because I don't know what else to make.
  • Food keeps sticking to my wok. What am I doing wrong?
  • It's hard to access Chinese ingredients. How can I substitute? 
  • Cooking Chinese food takes me forever because I don't know the proper techniques.
  • I don't know how to troubleshoot what went wrong with my flavors & textures.
  • I'm intimidated by recipes with a ton of steps, ingredients, and techniques. 
  • I have a family and wish I had more time to cook. How do I make it simpler and faster for myself?

And that leads to feeling overwhelmed (and unhealthy, expensive takeout dinners.) We don’t want that for you.

My dad's spent 50+ years as a chef and has taught millions of people how to cook.

Every night, he casually whips up 4-6 course meals for us. And he knows every trick in the book to make cooking simple, fun, and tasty. It'll work for you too! 

It's fun, with fundamentals!

For my dad, Cantonese cooking is second nature because he's mastered the basics:

  • Kitchen Setup: How do you setup & maintain your kitchen so it's easy to cook every day?
  • Equipment: What gear do you actually need to cook Cantonese food? How do you make sure it lasts a lifetime?
  • Technique: How do you effectively use a wok, spatula, knife, etc? What are the nuances?
  • Ingredients: How do you buy and prepare ingredients for the optimal textures and flavors?
  • Flavors: How do you balance ingredients to concoct the perfect flavors?
  • Heat Control: How do you adjust heat for the various cooking methods - stir frying, steaming, stewing, etc.?
  • Timing: How do you juggle cooking multiple dishes? What tricks do you use to save time?
  • Presentation: How do you plate and present your food so it looks appetizing?

You can learn all of this, too!

AND - we’ve created the solution to help you get there 10x faster
(without 50+ years of trial and error!)
