Thuy Diem Pham (The Little Viet Kitchen)

Born in Vietnam, Thuy and her family moved to London when she was eight, where she retained an intense passion for the food of Vietnam. After a stint running a hugely successful supper club with her husband serving Vietnamese tasting menus from their home on weekends, the couple took the plunge and opened The Little Viet Kitchen in Islington, London, to rave reviews.
