Wok with Yan (Series) (1980- ?)

Wok with Yan
In Wok with Yan, chef Stephen Yan demonstrated how to cook oriental dishes with a wok. A kind of Galloping Gourmet of the 1980s, Yan achieved notoriety for his energy and ebullience and for the bad puns on the word, "wok," printed on his apron.

I remeber watching this show as a young kid> i would rush home just to see it. Thought it was great. Found a post card of him on ebay and got it, didnt care how much i had to pay for it. Now that i know its back on tv (re-runs) i'm recording them. Cant wait for the memories to return. I check the internet to see if the restraunt is still open and it is. Same address as on the post card i got which has to be around 25yrs old

I can't believe Stephen Yan wasn't considered for the Order of Canada yet. It's one of the greatest television shows to ever be produced in Canada and I'm happy to announce that re-runs are back on the air.

Wok with Yan is now showing on OMNI TV, Monday's at 6:30 am, 9:00 am, and 9:30 am EST. For those of you on Rogers TV in the GTA, that's channel 14.

Stephen, where are you? Please come back for a special season or atleast a few shows. Looking forward to seeing you sometime soon!

Wok the heck!!!

What ever happened to Stephen Yan? I watched him in the 80s, bought things from his company, went to Vancouver and ate at his restaurant. I just found his cookbook i used for many years,and was wondering about him. He taught me how to cook Chinese. We love it. I'm curious.

i've watch his shows since i was a kid in the philippines. i really love his shows and got a lot of tips on cooking. tv stations like food network should show reruns of his shows or invite him as a special guest on their shows. he is way better than any cooking host on tv. where ever stephen is right now i wish him all the best. i believe that i've spoken with him 2 years back with him inquiring about his credit card. i think he still lives in vancouver or victoria in bc canada.
