When it comes to making a ‘golden wok’, I was taught to make one by a ‘mild’ Japanese-American (but not Chinese-American) named Yuki Ohara
Posted On August 9, 2021
I had to make a golden woks dinner for my Japanese friends.
I didn’t understand how to make them, and when I got home I had no idea what to do with them.
My Japanese-accented teacher said, “Yuki, make them like this.”
And that’s what I did.
They were my first woks.
They came out pretty good.
When I was younger, my father had a small, single-family home in Japan.
He would buy me dinner for dinner when I was 10, and I was never quite the same after that.
He lived a very strict life.
When I was growing up, I would get really bored of the family dinners, and would just go out and play.
One day, when I wasn’t really paying attention to anything else, my dad gave me a wok and told me to make it like this.
I didn’t know how to cook at the time, but it was an easy job.
It took about a year to make the wok I still use today.
After the first day, I made some noodles and made a bowl of rice, and the next day I made rice and noodles, and made the soup.
My father told me not to eat anything for the rest of the day, and he would take me to a nearby restaurant and get me some soup.
At the restaurant, I got really bored, so I took a plate of soup and put it on the table and took some noodles.
I then put the soup in the bowl, and put the rice on top.
Then I put the bowl on the plate again and started eating.
The next day, my friend asked me if I was hungry.
I said, I’m just hungry.
He was surprised, because I hadn’t eaten for a few days.
So I asked, “What are you hungry for?”
He said, you are hungry for rice and a bowl.
And I was like, “Oh!
That sounds good.”
I started eating the soup, and my father came over and we ate.
He put me in a chair and I ate the rice and soup.
When he finished eating, he put a bowl on my lap and said, what are you eating?
I said I’m eating noodles.
So I said to him, “That sounds good, but I’m hungry.”
He said to me, “I’m going to go make you some more rice.”
I said “No, no, no.
You’re going to have to make me some noodles.”
He started eating and then he left and I went to the bathroom to wash my hands.
Then, when he came back, he said, my meal is ready.
He went back and made me some rice.
He poured some water in the pot and added some salt and pepper.
I put it over the pot.
Then he added some sugar and a little flour, and cooked it for a minute.
And then he poured water into the rice bowl, put it in the rice cooker and he put it to cook.
And when it was done, I put some rice in the soup bowl and put some noodles in the noodle bowl.
I asked him, what’s in the noodles?
He said that’s some rice and some water.
So that’s my first time in a woks making class.
He told me I can make this in my wok if I want to.
He also said, don’t forget to put the broth in the water and the sugar in the flour.
I did it.
One day, a Japanese-Australian friend of mine who was a student in my Japanese-language class came over.
He showed me how to open the woks and cook some rice, but he was a little nervous.
I explained that it’s OK to put a little bit of water in to make sure you get the right amount of water.
He asked, is it OK if I put a bit of salt in?
I told him that it is OK to add salt.
And then he asked me what color do you want it to be?
I was confused and said I want it green.
I told my friend I want the rice green.
So we opened the wks, put the water in and started cooking.
And there was a lot of rice.
I was very surprised.
But the next time I came back to my class, I had a new teacher.
I wanted to learn how to get the rice to cook properly, but she said that it will take time.
So after a few lessons, I asked her if she wanted to teach me the rice cooking.
She said, yes, you can do that.
She also said that if you are making the wkoks, you should put a big bowl of water over them, so that
