How to COOK good (thankfully not naked): Gok Wan turns celebrity chef for new Chinese cookery show

First fashion and now food.

After tackling the nation's sense of style, Gok Wan will be moving into the kitchen to launch a new cookery show.

During each 30 minute episode, set to air on Channel 4 this May, the TV personality will rustle up quick and healthy Chinese dishes.

And this time the 37-year-old won't be alone, as his restaurant chef father John, who was born in Hong Kong and affectionately known as Papa Wan, will be joining him.

A source told The Sun: 'Gok can't wait to fire up his wok and showcase his other great passion in life, Chinese cooking.

'It will prove he is master of the cleaver as well as the cleavage!

'He loves home-cooked Chinese food and over the years has perfected many dishes of his own.

'And he can't wait to get his dad — who is a Chinese restaurateur and chef — involved too.

'Gok affectionately calls him Papa Wan and the series will show just how close they are.'

The six-part series, Gok Cooks Chinese, is being produced by Optomen, the same company behind Gordon Ramsay's show the F Word.

Executive producer Pat Llewellyn, who is also credited with
launching Jamie Oliver's television career said: 'Gok is a brilliant home cook
and his recipes are healthy, fast and packed with flavour.

Chinese way of cooking feels incredibly modern — fresh ingredients
cooked so quickly it makes 30-minute meals look like slow motion.

'Everyone loves eating Chinese food but not many of us dare cook it at home. I'm sure Gok is going to change that.'

Gok has an exclusive deal with Channel 4, and the broadcaster hopes that the new series will be a hit following the success of How to Look Good Naked which launched in 2006.

In April, another television project will take him to his ancestral home China where he will explore the world of mass production from cotton bed sheets to London black cabs.
