About

Kylie Kwong

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 locally grown, organic and biodynamic produce, and was the first climate-friendly restaurant in New South Wales.

A long-time supporter of the Slow Food movement and its aims, Kylie runs a stall at Eveleigh Farmers' Market in Sydney and helps to nurture the next generation of cooks through the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation. She has also developed a range of fair trade tableware in conjunction with Oxfam. 

Kylie is the author of six books – Kylie Kwong's Simple Chinese Cooking Class, It Tastes Better, My China, Simple Chinese Cooking, Heart and Soul and Recipes and Stories – and presenter of three television series that have aired internationally.
