Chef Yoonjung Oh
Jungsik (NYC) (she/her/hers)
Being born and honing her pastry skills in Seoul, Korea, Chef Yoonjung found her way into The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. She proceeded to stay in the States to work at Two-Michelin Starred restaurant Aquavit while she was still Pastry Chef. Owing to that, Yoonjung learned to incorporate savory elements into her pastry. Dedicated to showcase Korean cuisine, Chef Yoonjung participated in numerous Korean events during her tenure at Aquavit. Continued attraction toward Korean cuisine eventually landed her a position in Jungsik’s Pastry team, and eventually promoted to Executive Pastry Chef in the Summer of 2021.
