Jeremy Pang is the Head Chef and Owner of the Oriental School of Wok, an award-winning cookery school in London. He is also an Associate Chef of Food Academy. The School of Wok and Food Academy deliver a gold standard programme of cookery classes and work experience that gets great jobs for unemployed young people.
Jeremy comes from three generations of Chinese chefs and having studied at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu, there is very little that this food enthusiast doesn't know about Eastern cuisine. Jeremy attributes his love of food to his father, who was keen for him to experience exciting flavours and exotic foods as a young boy.
Over the years Jeremy’s expertise in the Chinese food industry has continued to gain recognition. Jeremy was a contributor to Nigel’s Simple Cooking series in 2012. He has appeared alongside Chef Kampo on Sunday Brunch Chinese New Year special, showing us how to make hand pulled noodles and talking about the biggest Chinese celebration. Jeremy’s fantastic new book Chinese UnChopped hit the bookstores last year!
