comment How should I clean this mess at the bottom of my wok?
I hadn't considered the possibility that the colouration was a good thing, but you're absolutely right; from your link: "Allow the brownish black patina to build over the cooking surface as this greatly enhances the cooking and release performance of foods from the surface." So I'll just be leaving it where it is.

comment Are there any scientific advantages to using a cork to stop a wine bottle?
There have been some very informative answers to this question, and I realised after reading Scivitri's answer that I had made a fundamental error in my initial reasoning. Taste is so intrinsically linked with presentation that I think it's correct to say that cork could improve the taste in certain ways. However TFD's answer is sufficient to determine that there are few purely chemical benefits to cork.

Yes, that sounds most likely. I will give fresh ginger a go next time.

I have taken to using the wok lid as a makeshift shield. I am this close to purchasing gauntlets and a helmet.
