I am a food writer, food photographer, food stylist and film maker on books, editorials, commercials and television.

My first cook book ‘My Vietnamese Kitchen‘ Published by Ryland Peters & Small is available to buy on this site, Amazon and Foyles, Daunts, Books Etc, Blackwells & Waterstones.

I hold supper clubs in my studio with Vietnamese menus and I blog about Vietnamese food and other food related topics such as cooking for children.

I also hold Vietnamese Cooking Classes in my studio kitchen.

I am a Londoner. I have lived in London for over 30 years, mainly in Hackney.

I trained in Fine Art Film & Video at Central Saint Martins College Of Art, I made an award winning film documentary for The Arts Council Of England back in 2001 called, “Pho”.

I used to have my own business in fashion and retail and was the designer of my own clothing and jewellery brand – ‘Leluu’, for my boutique business. Boutiques were in Earlham Street, Newburgh Street and Kingly Court. Due to rises in unsustainable rent and overheads, I retired from fashion in 2010.

Please follow me on instagram for daily updates & nice photos (@loveleluu) as I don’t always have time to blog nowadays. Thank you so much for visiting my website!

Here is a short film about me made by for The Guardian.
