Wagamama has launched a cooking channel so you can ‘wok from home’

Pining for a katsu curry from your couch? Today’s feelgood food news is that UK-wide chain Wagamama has just launched an online cooking channel so viewers can ‘wok from home’.

Described as a pan-Asian cookery series, Wagamama will release videos on Wednesdays and Fridays presented by the restaurant’s executive chef Steve Mangleshot. In each video – streaming on the noodle chain’s Instagram, Facebook and YouTube channels – Mangleshot will take viewers through how to create some of the group’s most iconic dishes from scratch. These include katsu curry, wok-fried greens and yaki soba. 

The free series – shot on an iPhone 11 by Mangleshot’s wife – will focus on step-by-step cookery on Wednesdays (which he’s dubbing ‘Waga Wednesdays’) and a store-cupboard cookery challenge on Fridays. And that all-important katsu curry will be the star of the first episode, airing next week. 

For more information and to wok along next ‘Waga Wednesday’, check out the restaurant’s Instagram.

Find even more cooking tutorials and things to stream from the comfort of your home.
