#174 Rachel Khoo on Cooking & Confidence

My guest today is the lovely Rachel Khoo - chef, food writer, broadcaster and founder of Khoollect which she describes as "a creative studio based in London and online community celebrating inspiration found in unlikely places".

At 26, Rachel left her London job working in PR to move to Paris and learn to bake and follow her gut (and heart). According to The Times, she contacted Penguin with the idea for the Little Paris Kitchen cookbook in 2012, which has since gone on to be translated into 12 languages, which also led to a BBC Two series, pulling in almost 2million viewers. 

She's just released her sixth cookbook, called The Little Swedish Kitchen and Rachel is currently filming her eighth television series. She co-hosts Zumbo’s Just Desserts which aired in during summer 2016 and is now screening around the world on Netflix.

In this episode we talk about her interesting career path, why she loves living in Sweden, her newest cook book The Little Swedish Kitchen and why it's OK to be proud of your work and be different.
