Kylie Kwong recipes and storiesKylie Kwong: Recipes and Stories is a delightful book of simple recipes, similar in approach to her television series. 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.

In June Wickedfood cooking school Johannesburg will be running their cookbook-of-the-month class based on this book. Dishes that will be covered in this class will include crispy skin chicken, stir-fried beef, spicy dry-fried green beans, deep-fried silken tofu, stir-fried rice noodles and steamed egg and ginger custards.

Wickedfood Cooking School

Sunninghill – (011)

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.
