Description - Kylie Kwong: Recipes & Stories by Kylie Kwong

In this celebration of cultural and culinary inspirations, Kylie Kwong presents her recipes for the fresh and approachable Chinese food served at her Sydney restaurant, billy kwong. Intertwined with the recipes are affectionate portraits of memorable meals - from cooking fried rice for her grandmother's boisterous mah-jong sessions to the everyday ritual of shopping in Chinatown. The richness and diversity of Kylie's cooking, and the culture that breathes life into it, are reflected in photos from her family album and her travels, as well as of the dishes that mean so much to her. For Kylie, food is both a way of life in the present and a link to the past and her Chinese-Australian family heritage. This captivating book is a very personal, intimate journey in the company of a fascinating family and the food that binds them together.
