Internationally renowned Vietnamese chef and restaurateur, Ms Trinh Diem Vy (the face behind the widely respected hospitality brand Taste Vietnam, Hoi An restaurants Mermaid, Morning Glory, Cargo Club, Vy’s Market Restaurant & Cooking School, “Taste Vietnam - The Morning Glory Cookbook” and the Maison Vy hotel), is spreading her wings, bringing decades of culinary experience and devotion to classic, impeccably prepared Vietnamese cuisine to Melbourne.
In 2012, following the publication of her first Book, Taste Vietnam: The Morning Glory Cookbook, Ms Vy created a brand identity designed to enable customers to easily identify her restaurants and hotel.
Having sold over 20,000 copies in its first 4 years, Taste Vietnam seemed the right choice of name. It also reflected Vy’s passion for Vietnamese cuisine and cooking. Since opening her first restaurant, Mermaid, in 1992, Vy has always had one eye on the future and never a person to rest on her laurels, she is always looking for new ventures and new ideas.
With the Taste Vietnam brand, Ms Vy hopes to give Vietnamese cuisine the place it deserves on the world stage. Already regarded as one of the healthiest cuisines in the world, it is unique in the way that it places strong emphasis on the balance and harmony of flavours and textures. Even after over 30 years in restaurants, Ms Vy’s passion remains undiminished.
Trinh Diem Vy is one of Vietnam’s most recognised restaurateurs and chefs. Born and raised in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An, Ms Vy is a third generation cook whose family recipes have garnered recognition throughout the country. Truly impassioned by food, Ms Vy has also played an important role in keeping traditional recipes alive. Her Hoi An restaurants, Mermaid, Cargo Club, Morning Glory and Vy's Market Restaurant and Cooking School, are famous both in Vietnam and abroad.
Each establishment has been the first in its genre. From family-style and gourmet Vietnamese, to one of the best bakery and patisseries in the country, Ms Vy has succeeded in delighting visitors from around the world with her menus and entertaining personality. While always serious when it comes to the quality of her food, she is an otherwise fun and generous host and a pleasure to meet.
