About Chef Jacqueline Pham
Jackie was born in Paris, France, the city of light and romance; a city known for its history of exquisite food and fashion beginning with the Enlightened Age. Jackie’s parents emigrated from Saigon, Vietnam in the mid seventies in search of a better life for themselves and their children and though born and raised French, Jackie’s parents made certain that she was exposed to both cultures and cuisines.
In her mid twenties, Jackie fell in love and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, also a child of immigrant parents from India. With a large extended family and with most of them vegetarians and a father-in–law with food restrictions (allergic to mushrooms), a 12-year-old sister in law (allergic to eggs and all nuts) and the rest meat lovers, well go figure!!
With two cookbooks on the market, Haute Potato and Banh Mi, this busy, Mom, Author and Chef also started PhamFatale.com. Why the name PhamFatale? Because one should be seduced by food and the entire history of eating has evolved from the caveman days of survival. The world changed and so did the culture of food.
Phamfatale is Jackie’s way of sharing her passion with all the foodies and anyone who would like to create memorable meals on their table. Jackie is not afraid to share her amazing recipes with the world, in her every own words she states,” I know a lot of people guard their cooking secrets like it’s a matter of national security, but I am a believer that knowledge is meant to be shared.”
