Thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Char. Nice to e-meet you!
I started Wok & Skillet initially as a hobby/creative outlet but it quickly became my passion to share simple and delicious recipes with the world, and to demystify Asian cooking. On May 23rd 2017, I launched my first cookbook, “The Healthy Wok!”
Wok & Skillet is a reflection of the foods I enjoyed growing up in the culinary melting pot of Asia, as well as the many years I spent in the United States. To summarize, it is food I love! Mostly healthy; some, not so much… (Everything in moderation!)
I don’t have any professional training as a chef but learned how to cook by watching my Mum and my grandmother in the kitchen (and also through LOTS of trial and error over the years). In most of my recipes here, you’ll find detailed step-by-step instructions along with pictures. Cooking does not have to be intimidating and I hope that by reading my recipes and posts, you’ll be convinced that if I can do it, you can too.
We currently live on the beautiful island of Penang, Malaysia. Although I was born and raised here, I spent most of my adult life in the US. I just moved back here in 2015 after living in the Pacific Northwest for 15 years. I am married to my best friend, David. We have been blessed with two amazing sons, Jayden and Brennan.
Thanks again for visiting! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed putting it together! I LOVE hearing from my readers. If you have questions, if you are interested in working with me, or just want to say “Hello”, send me an email to [email protected]
