Celebrated chef, restaurateur, sustainable food advocate and Eveleigh Farmers’ Market stall holder, Kylie Kwong, will be launching her latest cook book, Simple Chinese Cooking Class, at Eveleigh on Saturday, 14 July 2012.
Following on from the success of her bestselling 2006 cookbook, Simple Chinese Cooking, Kylie’s new book takes you through the basics and onto more advanced aspects of delicious Chinese Cooking.
“When I wrote Simple Chinese Cooking my aim was to demystify Chinese cooking and to make it accessible. With my Simple Chinese Cooking Class I want to offer more of the same – simple, authentic Chinese recipes using the best-quality fresh produce,” said Kylie.
Eveleigh Market Manager, Ariana Aljinovic, said having Kylie at the Farmers’ Market every Saturday, cooking dumplings and pancakes, is often a highlight for visitors and the Market is the perfect place to launch her new book.
“We are very excited that Kylie is releasing her book at Eveleigh, she truly embraces the spirit of the market through her advocacy for sustainable and seasonal local produce and often shops at the market for her restaurant. I think it’s great she can launch her new book here in front of her regular customers and the Sydney community.”
The launch will start at 10.30am at Eveleigh Farmers’ Market on Saturday, 14 July and will include a 30 minute cooking demonstration and books, including some signed copies, will be available to purchase on the day.
Simple Chinese Cooking Class features more than 130 new recipes and step-by-step guides to classic Chinese techniques such as chopping poultry, tea-smoking, poaching, wrapping intricate wontons and pickling.
The book also features a range of more involved recipes including Poached Lobster with Spring Onion-ginger Sauce, Deep-fried Soft-boiled Eggs, Chicken and Bean Curd Rolls and Chicken Wings stuffed with Pork and Prawn - all beautifully shot by photographer Earl Carter.
Kylie Kwong is well known as the proprietor of the celebrated Billy Kwong restaurant in inner-city Sydney, and as a passionate advocate of sustainable food and ethical eating. Her restaurant uses only locally grown, organic and biodynamic produce, and was the first climate-friendly restaurant in New South Wales.
Eveleigh Market is located at 243 Wilson Street, Darlington and is an Australian Technology Park Sydney Limited community initiative.
