The book covers a wide variety of Chinese-inspired recipes, and stories from the author’s childhood which gives the book a great personal touch. With her easy charm and good looks, it is little wonder that second generation Chinese Australian Kylie has become a household television celebrity chef. Her food is deliciously uncomplicated.

Books reviewed by Wickedfood on Asian food:
Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. Classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). The venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – team building cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.
Our cookery classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and teambuilding cooking classes these classes are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
