The Saigon Times Daily
Huynh Khanh Ly, the winner of France’s Master Chef in 2015, will visit Hanoi from March 17 to 23 for a culinary program “The taste of France” as part of the International Francophone Day (March 20) in Vietnam.
Ly received an invitation from the French Embassy in Vietnam to join food exchanges and programs in the country. She will attend the celebration of the International Francophone Day at the Vietnam National University, Hanoi and will show people how to make French-style fried bread at the event. Ly will also show up at a food program at O’Douceurs Resaturant in Hanoi with the participation of students who wish to study abroad in France.
At first, Huynh Khanh Ly pursued law and administration majors. Later, she shifted to studying food and beverage and the art of culinary. After her victory at the Master Chef 2015 contest, Ly was admitted to the acclaimed Paul Bocuse Institute in Lyon for restaurant establishment and management study. In April 2016, she published a cookbook with 45 recipes.
As a food adviser Ly has traveled to many places in the world. In early 2017, she came to Singapore and New York to host special dinners and training programs.
Huynh Khanh Ly was born in 1991. Her mother is a Hanoian while her father used to live in HCMC. Ly can speak Vietnamese. She made her first trip to Vietnam three years ago. Her favorite dishes are wanton, banh cuon (stuffed steamed rice wrapper roll), Hue-style noodles and Quang Nam-style noodles.
