Kylie Kwong: Recipes and Stories

Kylie Kwong: Recipes and Stories
Presenting her recipes for fresh, approachable Chinese food that have seduced Sydney diners in recent years, Kylie Kwong reaches back into her family history to tell a fascinating story of the immigrant experience in Australia. In this celebration of cultural and culinary inspirations, recipes are intertwined with affectionate portraits of memorable meals-from cooking fried rice for her grandmother's boisterous mahjong 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 with the past and her Chinese Australian family heritage.

In this captivating book, Kylie shares the recipes she holds dear to her heart, and the memories they evoke. This is a very personal, intimate journey in the lively company of a fascinating family and the food that binds them together.

Simple Chinese Cooking
Simple Chinese Cooking
A companion to her second Australian television series, this appetizing and beautifully illustrated collection will earn Kwong a large American following. Seeking to demystify Chinese cooking for the uninitiated, she allocates ample space to the basics: equipment, ingredients and techniques along with recipes for tasty yet simple dishes. The well-known Sweet and Sour Pork is balanced by the less familiar Sung Choi Bao of Pork, providing treasures for both those learning about the cuisine and those who are looking for more diversity. Kwong offers a comprehensive look at all aspects of Chinese offerings-from stocks, soups and rice to meats, poultry and tofu. Soy Sauce Chicken is not to be missed, and neither is Crispy King Prawns with Honey and Garlic Sauce. Sections on Salads, Wontons and Pickles are an added bonus, highlighting such gems as Pickled Asparagus and Mint Salad and Button Mushroom Salad. Kwong also provides tips on menu planning, saving time, food for kids and what to drink with Chinese food. Highly recommended for all fans of Chinese food, this collection is a welcome addition to a crowded field. 150 full-color photos. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
