  • You singlehandedly convinced me to start cooking and now I cook all the time. I hated cooking until I started watching your videos. I love wok cooking and Asian food and your videos uniquely combine recipes with WHY you add the ingredients you add, and how to use them effectively. You’re such a good teacher! Keep the videos coming you’re changing lives lol

    • School of Wok nah, I’ve watched a few other YouTube cooking instructional videos but none are as clear and concise as School of Wok and Lee (I hope that’s his name?)

  • Great dish Jeremy. Your videos are easy to follow with some great ideas that have inspired a lot of oriental style dishes at home. Doing a great job and I look forward to every Wednesday’s wok clock!

  • Jeremy is such a pleasure to watch with his passion for cooking, British accent, (and his little dance in the beginning). I’ve made many dishes but will make this.

  • Hi Jeremy! this is fantastic, and looks so delicious! One question though; when you were pouring the sauce, why do we have to pour it around the Wok and not straight into it all at once? Sorry if this is silly question. Thanks!

  • Just made this and it is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Will definitely be making this again. I chose to double fry the chicken too to make it extra crispy😁😁

    • Ohhhh we love double fried chicken! Glad you liked it!

  • I feel like I improved on this recipe by following some of sweet grammy gram’s traditional techniques. She always knew what a dish needed. I used a square plate rather than a round plate for my wok-clock. When I started at 548pm , wok-clock time, a major fire broke out. I was able to smash my dog on the flames repeatedly to knock back the flames; just like gram used to. Bonus: I’m saving tens of dollars on dog food now. Thanks for this delicious recipe!

  • I’ve just made this sesame chicken and it’s delicious, it’s the very first meal I made following your instructions. Because I only found your channel yesterday 😄 I have a question though, how do I avoid the chicken tasting floury? All that cornflour gives it a bit of an aftertaste of flour… Thank you in advance 🙂

  • Ok, so this is the sixth recipe of this channel’s that I’ve followed after- Singapore noodles, Cha Siu, Wonton soup, chicken chow mein and sweet and sour chicken and I want to say this. First off, thank you. These recipes have given me a hobby in lockdown during the last few weeks and have given my family some great meals. Secondly, Jeremy, you’re a geezer. You’re a really likeable guy and obviously a great chef. And third, anyone reading this and wondering whether to try it out? Trust me. Do. I’m an ok amateur home cook but certainly not a great talented chef. Follow Jeremy’s recipes to the T, get the right ingredients and do the prep and I promise you, you’ll be eating Chinese meals that taste as good as anything you’ll get in a top Cantonese restaurant in London’s Chinatown. Take it from me, a Londoner and Chinese food aficionado. Thank you School of Wok!

    • Great comment to read, I’ll send it on to Jeremy! We’re glad you’ve been trying out the recipes, we’ve got plenty more to keep you going throughout lockdown! Wok on! – Lee

  • I bought my first WOK last week, seasoned it and tonight cooked my first meal on it. It was great and my wife said it was better than our favorite local joint’s dish. Thank you for the excellent info and helping so many of us learn to “WOK this way!” You WOK!!!!!

    • Great job! Glad you both enjoyed it! – Lee
