The new Jane Plan 5:2

Beauty, Kitchen

We’re thrilled to launch our popular Jane Plan Diet meals as part of a new 5:2 format!

The diet plans are created with love and care, using a variety of locally sourced high quality ingredients so you can lose weight in an enjoyable way.

On the 5.2 Jane Plan Diet you chose any two days of the week to fast consuming 500 calories a day for a woman or 600 calories a day for a man (Monday after the weekend and Thursday before).

Leanne from Peterborough gave the diet a try and loved it:

I tried the Jane Plan 5:2 for four weeks and it is the first diet I have ever stuck to! The food is surprisingly delicious and filling, and because you only need to diet two days a week I could still enjoy my weekends. My favourite meals were the Beef Lasagne and the Mushroom and Porcini soup, and if I had any calories left over then I would bulk my dinner up with some low calorie vegetables like broccoli or spinach. All in all this is a great diet for anyone who just wants to lose a few pounds after an indulgent weekend or before they go off on holiday.

If you want to try a diet that fits into your life with minimal hassle, tune in to Ideal World at 3pm on Sunday 3rd April 2016 or visit www.idealworld.tv.

The School of Wok

Kitchen

School of Wok

Do you like tucking into Asian cuisine? If you’re experimental in the kitchen or a complete novice, the School of Wok can help you emulate the oriental dishes you love to eat.

We caught up with  Jeremy Pang, the School of Wok founder to find out what inspires him!

Why did you decide to pursue a career in cooking?

I’ve been cooking since I was 12 (so 20 years now), when we moved to Singapore, the hawker stalls out there served such delicious food that we just couldn’t resist… it really inspired me to want to cook. I actually studied biochemical engineering – and then moved into marketing, but I lost my job in 2009 when my dad passed away. So I started my path down the food road and started teaching people in their own homes. School of Wok has grown strength to strength from there and now here we are!

What’s your favourite dish to cook?

Hong Kong style Chilli Crab

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

Something with Rice – Rice goes with everything! In Chinese, we call people like me Faan Tong (Rice Bin). The great thing about Chinese cooking is that 1 meal is usually 5-6 dishes, so I’d have a whole steamed fish, some stir fried mustard greens on the side with a sweet & sour dish, and maybe a claypot egg tofu & mushroom stew… with the rice…. (is this cheating?)

What’s the biggest misconception you’ve heard about cooking?

That it’s just all about what ingredients you can get hold of! Cooking is not about whether you can get 1 ingredient or another, it’s about basic technique. I believe that if you can understand the basic techniques of cooking, you can cook anything.

Who are your cooking heroes, or who inspires you?

My dad – although he became a biotech consultant in the end – his true passion was cooking – and he always wanted to be a celebrity chef! Keith Floyd – I think he really made cooking fun on TV… Ken Hom – he has helped me to no end and supported my passion for our cuisine.

What would be on your dinner party menu?

The same as my last meal!!! You have to feed people what you most enjoy right? – Maybe with some simple starters beforehand (everyone loves spring rolls) but I also like lighter starters such as the steamed scallops with vermicelli that I’m going to show you.

Catch Jeremy and his School of Wok masterclass at 10pm (23/03/16).
