About the Author:

Kylie Kwong was born in Sydney to a fourth-generation Australian-Chinese family. She learned the fundamentals of Cantonese cooking at her mother's side, and then went on to hone her skills with several of Australia's most respected chefs. After working at some of Sydney's finest restaurants—Rockpool, Wockpool and Restaurant Manfredi—Kylie realised her dream of pouring her heart and soul into her own restaurant, billy kwong, in Sydney's Surry Hills.
