About the author
Elizabeth Chong has spent most of her life surrounded by food: the preparation, the cooking and the eating.
Born in a small provincial town in Canton, Elizabeth came to Australia when she was three. Through the family restaurant, The Golden Phoenix, one of Melbourne’s first Chinese gourmet restaurants, Elizabeth watched the chefs practise their skills and decided that cooking would be her life.
Elizabeth has taught Chinese cooking at Australia’s premier Chinese cooking school, which she established in 1961. She has also conducted many gourmet tours of the East, given lectures and interviews and regularly appears on both television and radio. She is one of Australia’s leading consultants to the Chinese food industry, writes freelance newspaper and magazine articles and has released six cookbooks.
