Wagamama has become the latest operator to launch its own cooking lesson video series to reach out to consumers in the closure period.

Hosted by executive chef Steve Mangleshot, ‘Wok From Home,’ will include tutorials for some of the brand’s most popular dishes including chicken katsu curry, yaki soba and wok fried greens.

The first video is set to go live next Wednesday (8 April), followed by another on 10 April.

Filmed in Mangleshot’s home kitchen, the series will be posted across Wagamama’s various social media platforms.

“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,” said Mangleshot.

“I also want to create a sense of community through our food, just like we do in all our restaurants.”

The move follows a similar announcement from Mexican chain Wahaca which yesterday launched ‘Wahaca at Home’, an online platform to share recipes, cocktail ideas, playlists, activities and news of its charitable initiatives throughout the closure period.
