Happy Birthday to the School of Wok {Giveaway!}

Having soy enjoyed my Quick Fire class at the School of Wok, I was thrilled to be invited back to help celebrate their first birthday. It was an evening of fusion between wonderful food and perfectly complementary drinks (no, I don't mean complimentary, even though they were). Greeted by the lovely Adrienne, with a glass of sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, there were bloggers, journalists, friends and family to enjoy the demonstration stations and sample the delicious food prepared by Jeremy, Nev, and Stefan.
Each dish was beautifully complemented by drinks provided by A Grape Night In, and there were three stations where Stefan demonstrated Dim Sum, Jez showed us how to roll noodles, and we were able to construct our own summer rolls.

Delicious, practical, and fun!
Thanks to all the School of Wok folk, and Happy Birthday!
