Wagamama Launches Online Tutorials Including Favourites Like Katsu Curry
If we've learned anything during lockdown, it's fair to say that most of us have realised that we usually spend A LOT of money eating out - and if your cooking is anything like mine, it's worth every penny.
But with chains unable to open as nationwide lockdown remains in place, many restaurants have tried to give us a bit of a sense of normality by giving out their restaurants to try to make at home.
The latest is Wagamama. On Wednesday, the Japanese inspired restaurant will be launching online tutorials, which will show you how to make some of its best sellers, including katsu curry.

Executive chef Steve Mangleshot, who has worked with the restaurant for 20 years, will appear on Facebook, Instagram, IGTV and YouTube for the 'Wok From Home' series.
From the expert's kitchen, viewers will be shown how to make the dishes, without any fancy appliances. Budding chefs will be shown a few simple skills and tricks, giving them everything they need to create their faves.

Steve said: "This is the first time in 20 years that I've gone this long without cooking Wagamama food and to be honest, I'm missing it. So, I thought I'd bring the Wagamama kitchen home so we can all get our Wagamama fix.
"The production value might not be up to our usual standard as it will be shot on an iPhone 11 but to be honest we're making this up as we go along! My wife is the producer / director and my kids are the sous chefs. So it's gonna be interesting!
"We have all been forced to prepare more food at home than we normally do and I want this regular online show to teach you how you can be a decent chef in no time. I also want to create a sense of community through our food, just like we do in all our restaurants."
The series will go live starting from tomorrow for 'Waga Wednesdays', with Steve putting out a new recipe video each week.
There will also be a store cupboard cooking challenge which will be put out on Fridays. This will see the top chef making dishes with just a few ingredients that you're likely to have in at home.
