Celebrity chef Jeremy Pang joins ‘Housewares Innovation Awards Live Cooking’ stand

jeremyWe are thrilled to announce that chef Jeremy Pang will be demonstrating on the ‘Housewares Innovation Awards Live Cooking’ stand at Spring Fair 2017.

The founder of School of WOK – Europe’s only award-winning Asian and Oriental cookery school – has collaborated up with housewares distributor Dexam to release a wok range, which he will be putting through its paces at the show.

Following a year of testing and designing, ‘School of Wok by Dexam’ combines the School’s ethos of learning how to make cooking Asian cuisine at home easy, exciting and fun, with Dexam’s experience and know-how.

The range includes multiple woks, designed and manufactured to an authentic Asian specification, in a variety of sizes.

They are accompanied by utensils such as a spatula and ladle that have been purposefully designed to match the angle of the woks for efficient cooking.

There is also a ‘skinny wok’ for health-conscious consumers. It features a textured wok base that allows for less oil to be used during cooking without compromising the taste or quality of the final dish.

Jeremy said: “We wanted to give people the right tools to make learning how to cook at home fun and exciting, rather than intimidating and overwhelming.
“It’s what School of Wok is passionate about, and there’s nothing we all love more than sitting down to a good meal shared with friends and family.”

Jeremy comes from three generations of Chinese chefs. Being surrounded by food connoisseurs, he developed his passion for food and cooking at an early age.

After graduating as a biochemical engineer and working for various companies, he went to the Le Cordon Blue Institute, where he had the opportunity to reinforce his food knowledge and cooking techniques.

After working in several restaurants and spending time as a travel journalist in Southeast Asia, in autumn 2009 he established School of Wok in London: a mobile cookery
SOW master 2015school specialising in teaching Eastern cuisine to students in the comfort of their own homes. With help from sponsors, School of Wok opened its first permanent professional kitchen in May 2012 in Covent Garden near the capital’s Chinatown.

Over the years Jeremy’s expertise in the Chinese food industry has gained recognition with publicity and reviews in ‘The Sunday Times’, ‘Delicious Magazine’ online, ‘BBC Good Food Magazine’, ‘ES Magazine’ and more.

Recently he achieved finalist places in two categories of the British Cookery School Awards: Best Young Rising Star and Best Specialist Cookery School.

The ‘Housewares Innovation Awards Live Cooking’ stand will be located opposite VIP buyers’ lounge The Seasons Club at Spring Fair 2017, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from Sunday February 5 to Thursday February 9.

The stand will offer exhibitors a live forum for their products to be demonstrated. Kitchen equipment supplied by Magimix will enable kitchenware expert and demonstrator Malcolm Harradine – and the celebrities joining him – to showcase a selection of products launched in the past 12 months.

How to book your slot

You will get a 20-minute slot each day from Sunday February 5 to Thursday February 9 and you can opt to perform the demonstration yourself or let Malcolm Harradine work his magic.

Throughout the week Malcolm will be using the products constantly while cooking, so you will get more than just 100 minutes for a week. When the products are not in use they will be on display on the stand’s shelves.

The package cost is £400 +VAT. Booking a slot is simple. Just call event manager Laurie Marrington on 07903 712 102 or send her an email via lmarrington@datateam.co.uk or download the booking form.
