Wok cooking classes Boston

My husband got me a very nice carbon steel work for Christmas. We have seasoned it and ready to go. I am using 'The Breath of a Wok' cook book. First attempt tomorrow night. I was wondering if anyone knows of any good Chinese or wok cooking classes in the Boston area? Thank you for any help.

    The Greater Boston Buddhist Center in Central Square (617 547-6670) occasionally offers lessons in Chinese vegetarian cooking.

      I got the same cookbook several months ago, but no, I've never heard of a wok cooking class in the Boston area. I haven't exactly looked that hard either, but if you follow the instructions in the cookbook you've got, everything should turn out alright.

        you might want to buy a gas heating unit to get the wok up to a temperature where it can sear. otherwise, you can use the book for cooking on a good cast iron skillet.
