TV preview: Gok Cooks Chinese
Gok Wan cooks Chinese for Channel 4
Want to know how to cook the perfect egg fried rice? Let Gok Wan guide you through Chinese cooking. The stylist has hung up his sewing machine and picked up a wok for his new Channel 4 series, Gok Cooks Chinese.
Gok was raised in Chinese restaurants (his mum is English, his dad is Chinese) so if anyone is qualified to speak about this cuisine, it's him.
In the programme, we'll see Gok head to Leicester to meet his dad and rustle up a classic dish; char siu pork. He will also visit the fiery kitchens of Hakkasan in London, one of the world's most celebrated Chinese restaurants, to see how top Chinese chefs make mouth-watering dishes.
Inspired by their speed, Gok returns to his kitchen to prove it's not just the professional chefs that can conjure up some magic.
Finally, another takeaway classic that can be easily made at home; spicy king prawns with cashew nuts. Gok will use the 'holy trinity' of Chinese cooking, garlic, ginger and spring onions, to create the perfect pyramid of flavour as it's the basis for many Chinese dishes.

Gok recently revealed that he was not happy with the title mooted for his new Channel 4 cooking show; Gok Cooks Chinese was almost called Gok's Wok.
He told the Radio Times: "If I was making something with a comical element Gok's Wok would have been fine. But I wanted the series to be taken seriously."
The TV star has said he's prepared for a backlash from people who feel he should stick to fashion.
"I'm ready for the critics to say, 'What the hell is Gok doing? He normally grabs breasts and now he's grabbing woks - what gives him the right to do that?'
But the fact is that, for me, food came long before fashion. We worked in catering. We had family restaurants in Leicester. So food not only fed our family, it fed our wallets," he said.
Can Gok Wan move into the world of a celebrity chef with the ease that he moved down the high street?
Ratings for How To Look Good Naked, the show he's best known for, have fallen over the years so it's clearly time to try something new.
