Yep...I have very good memories of Wok with Yan....fun and informative, he gave me my first lessons in wok cooking and I still make my versions of a few of his recipes. I still catch an old show once in a while and wish I could watch them rather than some of todays shows!

Justin was always one of my favorites. I used to have an autographed copy of one of his cookbooks but it was destroyed in a flood. He was the genuine article.

Justin taught me how to play with my food, before I started watching him I followed recipes to a "T." I have a couple of his cookbooks, but none signed, I never had the pleasure. I would have enjoyed having a meal with him.

Oh yes! Justin Wilson was too cool! "A day without wine is a day without sunshine!". My husband met him in the Memphis airport years ago and he was nice as could be.

This was a great show. Stephen Yan was also funny. He had all sorts of wok puns ... woks up ... danger - men at wok ... you are wok you eat ... wok goes up must come down ... take a wok on the wild side.

The show was funny and informative. It ran for 15 years and ended just two years after the Food Network began operations in 1993.
