Local chef and author introduces new book 'Wok and Roll

By  | 

ST. CROIX FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- Get ready to 'Wok and Roll!' Chef and author Peter Kwong of St. Croix Falls joined Hello Wisconsin to share details about his new book and cook up something special on our WEAU patio.

Wok & Roll' is a reflection of Peter's philosophy of life in general -
It started out as a recap of recipes for food and beverages; he has extended the weekly content in writing whatever comes to mind. Hence, funny jokes and stories that he remembers; incidents that he encountered while in the consulting business; and articles that he read somewhere.

Peter was born in Hong Kong; he came to the U.S. to get a college education, and ended up getting married and started a career in hospitality in Southern California, after he graduated with a B.S. degree in Business Administration and Marketing. He was recruited different times by companies who wanted to start new restaurant concepts. Finally he decided that Wisconsin is home with teaching cooking classes, writing, singing and with consulting work.
