Mandy came to East Reen from Taiwan.  She said she could not cook.  However the following recipe was produced and she ended up buying a cookery book from the farmers market.  It was in English entitled “The wok Bible”!  I have to say I was slightly jealous of her find as it was a super book.  She has taken it back to Taiwan,  now making recipes and at the same time keeping her english practiced!


Hi Ann
Sorry for late to provide my recipe. The “stir-fry pork with spring onion” and “Carrot Omelet” are two dishes that I provide such as an attached field ( word and PDF). If you can’t see it, please tell me.

Do you remember the Asian recipe book being written in English, THE WOK BIBLE? I am glad I bought it because I use it to write this recipe for you. Ha~Ha~

I am learning how to drive at this moment. I am going to get the licence in Dec if my driving test is pass.
If you can , please take a photo of your recipe book that you said in your email to me. I am just gonna see it when it is finished.

Oh~I provide a photo that we are together on my leaving day as well.
Hope your everything is fine.

Best Regard
