Editor's Note

We join renowned Sydney chef Kylie Kwong in the kitchen, where she shares her unique take on Chinese cuisine. This issue, you’ll also have the chance to explore the cuisine of Java – one of Indonesia’s main islands. Mrs Susilowati Primo, the wife of Indonesia’s ambassador to Australia, shared some of her best recipes to create a wonderful Indonesian menu. One cuisine receiving a lot of attention right now is Peruvian, so we went direct to the source and asked South American expert Nicholas Gill to give us the lowdown on the regional cuisines of the north.
