Description:

Stir- Frying - Is a Chinese cooking technique in which ingredients are fried in a small amount of very hot oil while being stirred in a wok. Stir-frying has been recommended as both healthy and appealing for their skillful use of vegetables, meats, and fish which are moderate in their fat content and sauces which are not overly rich, provided calories are kept at a reasonable level.

Stir-frying has been promoted as healthy and nutritious. Writers extolled the quick cooking at high heat for retaining color, texture, and nutritional value.

Come explore the art of stir-frying and get new recipes too. The cost of this session is $10.00 Call ahead to RSVP 704-216-8970. Seating is limited
