Kylie Kwong was born into a fourth-generation Australian-Chinese family, in Sydney.
She learnt 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.
Kylie’s television series, Kylie Kwong: Simply Magic, screens exclusively on The LifeStyle Channel and LifeStyle FOOD. In this eight-part series, Kylie travels to the heart of the country that has inspired all her cooking, to two of the world’s most exciting cities, Hong Kong and Shanghai. There she finds the origins of the recipes her grandmother taught her and finds inspiration for new dishes. Back home in her beautiful Sydney kitchen, Kylie shares her wonderful new cooking ideas with us; showing us how we can simply cook authentic Chinese recipes at home, using ingredients available at any local supermarket. The accompanying cookbook, Simple Chinese Cooking, was published in March 2006
Her first television series Kylie Kwong: Heart and Soul premiered in October 2003 and has since been sold worldwide, as has the accompanying book. Her first book, Kylie Kwong: Recipes and Stories, introduced her family and the food that binds them together.
For Kylie, food is both a way of life in the present and a link with the past and her family heritage - especially for her extraordinary great-grandfather Kwong Sue Duk, who was lured to Australia from his ancestral village in China by the promise of gold. As she says ‘…by sharing the experiences of my family, I hope to enhance the understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture, particularly within Australia, and to express my pride in my Chinese heritage.’

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
