The best restaurant in Parramatta explains what Chinese cooking tools you need in your kitchen

Do you love Chinese food and want to try to cook some dishes at home? The best restaurant in Parramatta will tell you what essential kitchen tools you need to cook your favourite meals from home.

To cook like a professional, you’re going to need a few of the tools we use in our Chinese restaurant in Parramatta. You’ve probably guessed it but yes you are going to need a wok! A wok is the most used tool in our kitchen so make sure you purchase a stainless steel or cast-iron wok as these are the most durable. I’m sure you’ve seen a wok being used for stir-fry before, but did you know of their many other uses? They are very versatile and can also be used to boil, steam and deep fry food.

Rice is such a prominent ingredient in Chinese dishes, so if you don’t already own a rice cooker it’s time to purchase one right now! The simplicity of a rice cooker makes cooking rice or whole steamed meals so much easier. Add meat, vegetables or fish with rice in the cooker and you will have an authentic Chinese meal in no time.

Eating dumplings from home just like the ones you see at yum cha in Parramatta is possible by purchasing stacking steamers. Stacking steamers are a tradition in Chinese cuisine preparation and are especially great for steaming dumplings and Chinese buns. The best bit about them is that they cook very cleanly, leaving no mess or grease for you to clean up after.

After you have a go cooking from home, make sure you come back and make a booking at the best restaurant in Parramatta.
