Wagamama exec chef to launch free virtual cooking series

Pan Asian casual dining chain, Wagamama is launching a new free video series, Wok From Home, to teach people how to cook dishes such as Yaki Soba, Cha Han, and Wok Fried Greens.

Wagamama’s executive chef, Steve Mangleshot will be running the cooking lessons from his own kitchen, with the first going live on Wednesday 8 April, followed by one on Friday 10 April.

The series will be posted across Wagamama’s various social media platforms, including YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.

Mangleshot (pictured) commented, “This is the first time in 20 years that I’ve gone this long without cooking Wagamama food and to be honest, I’m missing it. So, I thought I’d bring the Wagamama kitchen home so we can all get our Wagamama fix!

“The production value might not be up to our usual standard as it will be shot on an iPhone 11 but to be honest we’re making this up as we go along!

“We have all been forced to prepare more food at home than we normally do and I want this regular online show to teach you how you can be a decent chef in no time. I also want to create a sense of community through our food, just like we do in all our restaurants.”

The group closed all sites and stopped deliveries on 23 March.
