Chef, restaurateur, and TV personality Judy Joo spent years as a successful analyst at Morgan Stanley before deciding to pursue her true passion and enroll in the French Culinary Institute, now ICC. After moving to London, she competed for and won the UK version of Iron Chef, becoming one of four chefs to hold the title there. As host of Cooking Channel’s Korean Food Made Simple, Judy has become a culinary ambassador for Korean cuisine. In 2014, she opened her first London restaurant, JINJUU (Korean for “pearl”), and she opened a second outpost in Hong Kong last year. Her first cookbook, Korean Food Made Simple, will be released this May.
