About Chef Vikki Krinsky

At the young age of 15, Vikki began her career path as an actor on Edgemont, the hit Canadian television series. Following Edgmeont, Vikki landed a series regular role on Lifetime's Wild Card. Vikki's life in front of the camera came along with the unwelcome expectation that she would maintain a certain weight and body image. The pressure to be thin gave Vikki a new appreciation and understanding of and relationship to food. Soon, Vikki's interest in cooking and nutrition eclipsed her love of acting, and she set off to explore a career as a chef.
Chef Vikki's culinary education began when she took a trip abroad, and serendipitously met a chef on a train. That chance encounter on her second day in Paris led to incredible connections, and soon after she was able to apprentice in kitchens across Europe. With her unique background and wealth of knowledge she returned to the States and started working as a personal chef for Hollywood's A-list actors and personalities.
