Kylie Kwong is a young,
new and fresh Australian chef. She is full of enthusiasm and great food ideas
and that is why this disc, ‘Kylie Kwong’s cooking with heart and soul,’ is
such a great watch. There are two discs to this series. Disc One features four
episodes, Bamboo, Spice, Rice and Shellfish and these each contain five dishes
as does disc two, which features the same layout as disc one, four episodes,
Noodles, Mushrooms, Eggs and Marinades each with their own separate dishes.
To me, Kylie Kwong is a
familiar name, not one that has been widely exposed, but one that has been
mentioned enough to realise that she has a big future in cooking and
television. She possesses a passion for food that is such an appealing quality
in a cooking show. She explains each dish down to the last ingredient and she
tells us what she expects from each of her creations.
Throughout her episodes
she manages to explain a lot of the basic and essential ingredients needed for
a wide variety of dishes.
Something that is also a
great asset to her is that she is from Chinese heritage. She uses this, and
traditional family recipes, to enhance her cooking styles and abilities. She
says her favourite things about cooking are the tastes, textures and sounds of
food and we shouldn’t be afraid to get our hands dirty, its part of the fun.
This is a great disc to
watch is you are interested in cooking dishes that not only sound delicious
but look it too. The qualities I want in a TV chef are, someone who is laid
back and fun and someone who can talk a lot. Kylie Kwong definitely lives up
to these expectations. In my opinion, she is close to being a female Jamie
Give this disc a look
for sure, especially if you want to learn more about Asian cooking.
The disc is shown in
Featured is a really mellow soundtrack, which helps set the
tone and the mood of the show. The shows actual soundtrack is stereo only.
There are no extras on either of the discs but, with
cooking programs they are rarely needed.
