Kieumy was born and raised in France by Vietnamese parents, and she lived in Asia for more than a decade. She trained at Ferrandi, a renowned cookery school in Paris, and later as a Natural Chef and Plant-Based Chef in London. Her style of cooking is strongly influenced by her French-Asian Oriental background and extensive travels. Kieumy is passionate about healthy seasonal food which is good for people and kind to the planet. She founded BOM (Beautiful Wholesome Meals), a social enterprise which employs and trains up refugee women, teaching people to make more conscious choices about the food they eat through sustainable culinary activities.
