Description - Kylie Kwong: My China by Kylie Kwong

Travel with Kylie Kwong as she rediscovers her Chinese heritage, exploring the food and culture of a vast and enigmatic country. Her inspiring journey takes her from the rural simplicity of her ancestral village in China's southwest to the wilds of the Tibetan plateau and the stylish modernity of Hong Kong and Shanghai.Whether searching for the perfect dumpling in Shanghai, exploring the contemporary art scene in Beijing and Hong Kong, rifling through sacks of spices the size of mattresses in Chengdu, or marvelling at the silkiness of freshly made noodles in Xi'an, Kylie is tireless in her quest for new experiences and encounters, cooking up a storm and winning hearts wherever she goes.
