Rachel Khoo, the 31-year-old cookery writer, TV chef and restaurateur.
Rachel Khoo has come a long way since she landed in Paris from London six years ago, armed with schoolgirl French and a love of cooking. This charming 31 year old was brought up by an Austrian mother and a Chinese-Malaysian father in London.
After the patisserie course, Khoo worked in La Cocotte cook-book store and ran baking workshops – Her "Pimp My Cake" class was a favourite among Parisian fashionistas. I was cooking all these recipes, I lived on my own and I thought: “Why not have friends over for lunch?” "It grew from there" says Khoo.
