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.
