Win Grace Young's Must-Have Cooking Tools

By Robyn Doyon-Aitken, Web producer

December 27th, 2012

Update: Congrats to Diane W. (aka silanti). Her comment was picked at random and she is the winner of the prize. Thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway. Want to try your luck again? Tour Melissa Clark's kitchen and enter to win her favorite kitchen items.

Cookbook author Grace Young's 60-square-foot kitchen is designed with Chinese cooking in mind: Her extra-deep countertop is the ideal space for stir-fry prep, roll-out cabinet shelves hold a (growing) collection of woks, a deep single-bowl sink accommodates even her largest wok, and her KitchenAid stove includes a special grate that doubles as a wok pedestal when she's in the mood to use her traditional Cantonese round-bottom wok. If you're suddenly in the mood for a stir-fry, I understand.

Go Behind the Kitchen Door to tour Grace's kitchen and learn more about what makes it an ideal space for wok cooking.

Your kitchen may not be designed with Chinese-style cooking in mind, but that doesn't mean you can't fire up your wok using some of the tools Grace uses every day. Leave a comment below for a chance to win Grace's must-have cooking tools. I'll pick a winner Wednesday, February 27 (a nice way to begin the Chinese New Year) and announce the winner Thursday, February 28.

Bonus prize: Grace and her publisher have graciously offered up a signed copy of her award-winning book, Stir Frying to the Sky's Edge, so you'll have plenty of recipes and inspiration to go along with your new wok.

NOTE: Giveaway is now closed.

No crunchy vege's and overcooked meat in the finished recipes that I have tried in the past....Being a 'newbie' of Grace's site I hope to become a more proficient cooker of Asian cuisine.I have learned that using the proper tools in preparing food makes the job that much more time saving and a much better outcome in the end. Being selected to win Grace's 'must have tools' would be an added bonus for me since getting turned on to your site! I'm a willing student ready to learn; Thanks for sharing with us all! :)

VickieG writes: When we first married 45 years ago, a friend of my husband at work invited us to his home to share their Chinese New Year feast. The family was from Hong Kong and owned a restaurant in Chinatown in NYC. We were then invited to his wedding and I've been hooked on Chinese cooking every since. I've made a few Chinese New Year dinners for family and make my own egg rolls/ and shrimp dumplings. We eat stir fry at least once a week. I would love to own Grace Young's cookbook for new ideas and upgrade some of my asian cuisine cooking tools. Posted: 7:32 pm on February 5th

Student4evr writes: I am having an addition built on the first level with a deck just off the kitchen. There is already a BBQ that gets used all year so I am adding a cook-line for stir frying out there as well. I currently do a lot of steaming and have finally decided that my All-clad chef's pan just won't cut it for stir frying. On to a new carbon or cast iron pan! The new wok will also be making trips out with my fly fishing club when we go camping. (I am the club chef).
I do a lot of Asian dishes, we have a lot of great produce here in northwest Washington, And the seafood is not bad either. I find the light touch of this cuisine brings out the nightlights of both. Particularly if you spend the time to get the best ingredients condiments,sauces and condiments. Posted: 11:06 am on February 5th

I had to watch the video and I really enjoyed learning of the Chinese cooking god!
I really want to check out her book now! Posted: 11:59 am on January 22nd

nll88 writes: Thank you for the great tips, especially the flipping of the stove grate to make it hold the round bottomed wok. My parents have been using the same carbon wok for 40+ years. They, too, use it for not only stir frying but deep frying and steaming. Our family has many happy food memories that began with the wok. Posted: 11:53 am on January 22nd

mkstmn writes: After reading the article and the recipes, I went to the basement and brought up my wok. Tomorrow, I'll be working to bring it back to working order. I'd love to have the wok or your book. I have your first one, but at 75, I decided not to buy any more cookbooks but to use the ones I have acquired over the years.

ricelover writes: I purchased Stir-frying to the Sky's Edge on Kindle based on the glowing reviews on Amazon. I LOVE the cookbook! I felt compelled to purchase a carbon steel wok, and a wok spatula after reading her introduction and now love to wok. I wish I had the hardcover version as it is a little cumbersome to cook from a Kindle (it shuts off after awhile during cooking).

I really like the picture of Grace holding her cat. I have an orange and white tabby that looks almost exactly like hers--we call him Merlin, but most often we call him by his nickname "Rascal!" when he does something naughty. Posted: 8:39 pm on January 20th

toleliz writes: Loved the kitchen, the photos and the explanations of why Grace chose the equipment and layout for her kitchen that she did. I loved meeting Henley too-I wonder if he lies on that large curved counter to supervise the preparations in the kitchen (I know that my own kitty Mitzi certainly would try)
I found Graces's comment about preferring home cooked to restaurant meals interesting and we like nothing better ourselves than to get together with friends and a good home cooked meal. I have a little triangular area above a corner cabinet that has a gargoyle blowing a "raspberry". (It's a reminder to not take myself too seriously) but I think that the next time that I'm in Chinatown I may look for a small kitchen god to keep there too (one can never be too sure) Posted: 5:48 pm on January 20th

Kim838 writes: Thanks for the good article and video of Grace's kitchen layout. Since I've been wanting to improve my current kitchen floor plan, it's given me lots of great ideas. And starting this new year, I have resolved to eat a lot more fruits and vegetables. I think the asian emphasis of recipes with lots of vegetables and complimentary protein will help me with that goal of having a varied and tasty diet. Posted: 12:41 pm on January 20th

shulian writes: Great giveaway! I'd love to have these cooking tools in my kitchen. I was recently married and I'd love to have some tools to continue to cook Chinese cuisine for husband, who hadn't had much exposure to good Chinese food. Posted: 10:41 am on January 20th

I love my wok but never knew it's round bottom wasn't the way to go and I don't use it often enough due to a lack of ideas so this video inspires me to do more with it. Good recipes are key and the proper tools help as well! Posted: 2:52 pm on January 12th

BlackLabs writes: Although Chinese and grew up in Asia, my parents never allowed me in the kitchen because we had a cook to cook our meals. Needless to say I never learned to cook our family's Chinese (Cantonese) dishes and soups. I've managed to muddle along, but my cooking these days are western cooking. Yes I have a flat bottom carbon steel wok and a round bottom one that I used in college (because we had a gas stove then), but they are under used. I "need" a teacher and short of having Grace in my kitchen Grace's book would be great to get me started again with Chinese cooking. Posted: 2:19 pm on January 12th

NWfoodie writes: What a wonderful, descriptive video to explain all the reasoning behind Grace's decisions on kitchen design and functionality. I love the narrow drawers and the simple solution to buy a readymade wooden knife storage holder and cut it to fit the narrow drawer.
