Wok Hei (鑊氣)

According to Grace Young, the author of The Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen, Wok Hei is the breath of a wok. It gives food a unique concentrated flavor and aroma when a wok breathes energy into stir-fry, which is encountered the most in Cantonese cuisine. Wok Hei can only produced with open flame, and some chefs will catch the flame into the wok on purpose, in order to show how the wok breaths. Pop Up Wok love to do that, however, our gazebo is one of the most important assets, we don't want to set fire on it :P
