Let’s be friends! Find me on Instagram:

Hello everyone! My name is Jannie Lam, and I am a self-taught cook. I mostly learned from watching my mother and grandmother in the kitchen while growing up. I never knew that my passion for food and cooking ran so deep until I auditioned and competed on Season 9 of Fox’s hit TV program–MasterChef. From that show came my nickname “Vegas Vixen,” which at home with friends and family became “Vegas Vixen in the Kitchen.” Thus, my new weekly YouTube series was born. So tune in each week as I cook, talk about food, and share different aspects of my culture overall life. Enjoy my take on classic recipes as well as my own culinary visions.
