At 7:30 this evening, Hohs mission of turning stir fry neophytes into accomplished wok wizards takes form. Shes leading a class at the Jean-Pierres Cooking School (1436 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale) and the recipes shell deliver look positively scrumptious. Start with a rainbow lettuce appetizer seasoned with ground turkey, hoisin sauce, and crunchy pumpkin seeds. Then delve into proper preparation of Asian stir fry veggies and a cashew-topped dish loaded with shrimp, asparagus, and carrots. Finally, master a quick fish recipe with Hohs hearty tilapia, zucchini, squash, and bell pepper ensemble, doused in a spicy, brown bean sauce. All are meals that you can make at home in less than 30 minutes and with minimal ingredients, but you dont have to reveal that to your friends and family. Just allow them to be amazed by your glorious new wok star skills. The class is interactive and costs $85. Reserve a seat by calling 954-563-2700, or visiting www.chefjeanpierre.com.
