Australian professional kitchen knife and sharpener brand Füri has announced Kylie Kwong as its new brand ambassador.
Kylie Kwong, one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, is best known for her iconic Sydney restaurant, Billy Kwong, range of cookbooks and appearances on MasterChef as well as being an advocate for sustainable food and ethical eating. With a passion for nurturing and educating a next generation cooks, Kylie is the perfect spokesperson for Füri’s range of ergonomic, high quality, Australian-designed knives and sharpeners.
Also joining the ranks as ambassador is Mark Henry, acclaimed international entrepreneur and the brand’s original owner and architect. Mark brings a wealth of technical knowledge to the table and will continue to ensure Füri is meeting the highest industry standards and informing future product development.
Kwong said: “Anyone who knows me understands my love of good design and practicality. Enter Füri. Sharp, perfectly balanced and with an innovative handle that makes knife work so much easier, I now only use Füri in the kitchen.”
With a presence in Australia and abroad, Füri designs and manufactures high quality and high performance tools for both professional chefs and passionate home cooks. Füri, with its innovative wedge-shaped handle that reduces hand fatigue, has won respect and popularity around the world for its exceptional performance, durability and comfort.
