A few months ago I attended the Speciality Food Show Scotland where I met Stephen Kwan from Kwan's Kitchen. Stephen took time out to answer '5 Questions' and allowed me to give a bit of a background to the Kwan's Kitchen story as well as raise a little awareness to their fantastic range of home cooking sauces and spices.
Last week I caught up with Stephen when Kwan's Kitchen were exhibiting at the recent BBC Good Food Show at Glasgow's SECC when he told me that he has been busy looking at ways to make cooking authentic Chinese food even easier for the home cook, resulting in the new Kwan's Kitchen 123 Stir Fry Kits.
I loved the rich aromatic flavours of the Kwan's Kitchen sauces and spices when I tasted them earlier in the year qnd was excited to try out the new 1-2-3 stir fry kits so picked up three of the four available flavours.
It's difficult to believe that this little box contains so much flavour!
Each kit contains a pack of seasoning, a pack of sauce, and a pack of seasoned oil. With my rice bubbling away, I simply marinated thin strips of chicken breast in the seasoning before stir frying for a few minutes, adding red pepper and courgette strips to the wok. Once the vegetable were cooked through, I added the sauce and a little water and cooked for a further couple of minutes then finally added the fragrant seasoned oil to the wok.
Talk about easy! Less than ten minutes actual cooking time had passed and I was serving up authentic Szechuan chicken dish that both myself and Nicola loved. Roll next week when I will be trying out the blackbean and garlic kit with some fillet of beef.
