The Mindful Chef | Chef Kylie Kwong ft Louis Tikaram


Kylie Kwong is the undisputed queen of modern Australian Chinese cooking and has changed our perception of native ingredients. She is a household name with her much-loved restaurant Billy Kwong in Sydney's Potts Point, and a regular on our TV screens- from Masterchef to her own shows exploring China and Australian producers. But on our journey to her favourite weekend hang, we discovered another side to this inspiring chef: her focused and spiritual approach towards life and cooking, how she copes with the daily stresses of being a chef, why she is a one-restaurant woman and what her light bulb moment was a few years ago. Then we put Hollywood's “it chef” Louis Tikaram under the grill. The Mullumbimby boy earned his stripes at top Aussie restaurants Tetsuya’s and Longrain before being hand-picked to open EP and LP in Los Angeles, and turning it into one of the city’s hottest restaurants and rooftops. He spills the Hollywood food goss from where to get the best taco to being enlightened by vegan coffee.
