Magic in a wok

When it comes to food culture, the Chinese are renowned for treating their dishes as works of art. Striving for diverse colours, aromatic aromas and excellent taste, there is a spectacular variety of cuisines throughout the country, from flaming-hot, tongue-numbing dishes in the West, to Cantonese stir-fries in the South. Among these cuisines, Yang Chow Fried Rice is one of the nation's most legendary and popular dishes.

Although the recipe originally came from the city of Yangzhou in the Jiangsu province, it is now enjoyed all over the world. Chinese restaurants often devote a specific focus to this recipe due a very high customer demand for a well-cooked Yang Chow Fried Rice. It is also a popular meal for home chefs as it is great for making use of leftover meats, vegetables or rice.

This Asian classic is made simply by stir frying cooked rice with egg, meats and vegetables. It is believed that using drained, leftover rice from the fridge makes for a better taste and texture.

Not only is this classic Chinese stir fry tasty and filling, but it is also easy to make, using bits and pieces in the fridge that might have otherwise gone to waste. If you want to try this at home the easiest way is to use our Yang Chow Fried Rice spice paste.
