Vivian Pei is a cook, writer, stylist and instructor who authored “Awakening the Appetite”, a cookbook by Parkway Cancer Centre. She also worked with the inimitable Anne Willan on the James Beard award-winning The Country Cooking of France. She has two small people and is a wannabe Spartan athlete so if it has to do with food, fitness and kids, she's interested. She speaks 5 languages, has lived in 5 countries and eaten her way through countless others. Her interest in adult beverages led to a hard won CSW and she has now branched out into the cocktail world… all of which go nicely with her other love, travel.
