MILLERTON — Golden Wok Chinese and Japanese Cuisine won the Tang Ho Quality Award for Chinese Catering Industry in America and was awarded a rating of three stars at a conference held Sunday and Monday, Feb. 12 and 13.The conference was organized by The World Association of Chinese Cuisine and The China Cuisine Association.Only 300 restaurants nationwide were considered for the award and 60 winners chosen.Amy Yang, manager of Golden Wok, attended the conference and accepted the award.“I was so surprised. I had an idea going that we were considered, but I did not know we would win. I didn’t even know they had eaten here,” she said.Yang was also treated to cooking demonstrations and a panel with four of Beijing’s top chefs.“It was really interesting to learn new things. I learned to cook from my father when I was 12 and have been cooking ever since. My house is full of cookbooks, I’m always looking for new ideas,” she said.Yang was proud not only for the Golden Wok but for Millerton as well.“It’s really good for the town. Having an award-winning place to eat adds something to the community. We’re really happy,” she said.The Golden Wok, at Railroad Plaza in Millerton, is available for customers to dine-in or take-out.
