After graduating from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London, a passion for pâtisserie lured Rachel Khoo to Paris, where she obtained a pastry diploma from Le Cordon Bleu cookery school.
Before long, she was travelling the world, working on culinary projects for clients large and small
and hosting cooking workshops in locations as far-flung as London, Paris, Milan, Sydney and Buenos Aires, while also developing her career as a food writer. This led to number-one bestseller The Little Paris Kitchen, which was published by Penguin in 2012 and translated into thirteen languages. The accompanying BBC2 TV cookery series turned Rachel into a household name, not just in the UK but also in the many other countries in which it aired, including Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong and the USA. Rachel has presented several subsequent cookery series for BBC Worldwide, and regularly writes recipes for the London Evening Standard, The Times and the Guardian, among other publications, as well as consulting for hotels, restaurants and blue-chip clients. Her popular website, Khoollect, is an online community of food and lifestyle inspiration, with a newly opened creative studio and workshop space based in London. In 2016 Rachel moved to Sweden, where she now lives with her Swedish husband and their baby.
