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.
