THE FOUNDER'S STORY

I am Kieumy and I am a really passionate believer of wholesome food, delicious and seasonal, good for you and kind to the planet.

 

Trained at Ferrandi - famous cookery school in Paris - and as a Natural Chef and Plant-Based Chef in London, I celebrate seasonal meals and local fresh ingredients with a vast array of textures, flavours and always freshness. My style of cooking is strongly influenced by my French-Asian background but also by my rich encounters with Chefs during my extensive travels. 

 

At the heart of everything I do, I avoid more than ever food waste and do not use ingredients that are detrimental to health and contribute to climate change.

During my rare free-time, I enjoy taking part in community projects. In this picture (together with Prince, the Head Chef), I was cooking for SUFRA (a local charity based in North West London) to celebrate Chinese New Year. 

Thanks for visiting!

Food that Speaks to Your Soul – 9kitchen's Ethos for Clean, Viable Eating
We are mindful of food and how it affects the planet. We want to show you ways you can be more environmentally conscious even in the kitchen. 

Green and Chemical Free Food

Our food is free from artificial flavour enhancers and colourants, preservatives, empty carbs, and tasteless ingredients whether it is for catering,  cooking classes or team building activity. With our culinary events, plants always take centerstage!

We know how important it is to nourish yourself well.

A Sustainable Way to Eat

We want our food to be as natural as possible, even putting it before profit.

  • We will always source for fresh ingredients grown in the UK first and then in the rest of the EU. We limit the use of fresh exotic products to fresh herbs and spices that would provide the unique Asian aromas. 

  • Place your orders in advance so we can limit as much food waste as we can.

  • Whenever possible, your meals will come on foot, bicycle or even electric car.

  • As we avoid using plastic containers, we prefer offering our food in buffet style instead of individually packed. 

 

Everything we do is with the environment and your well-being in mind. Even the smallest action can help limit our carbon footprint.

Supporting Our Community

We pride ourselves on not just being another faceless business, but a workplace for local women in need. 

In collaboration with organisations like SUFRA and SALUSBURY WORLD in North West London, we can train and offer employment to women in need and mothers of young children with flexible hours.
