About Chef Sung

Chef Sung Kim is a New Yorker from Seoul, South Korea, that cooks globally influenced comfort food. She has been re-inventing classic dishes inspired by the City, and her travels from all over the world, especially Asia. As a self-claimed “retired” artist, she fell into painting, but cooking chose her. She thinks cooking is the only form of craft that satisfies all of our senses, providing physical and emotional experience.

Chef Sung is a graduate of The French Culinary Institute (now International Culinary Center), she’s spent years training at some of the most acclaimed restaurant kitchens in NYC, including Michelin starred Gilt, and The Spotted Pig, Danny Meyer’s trattoria Maialino and a RAW authority Pure Food and Wine.

Her philosophy on cooking reflects these types of training. Since 2012, Chef Sung and her team have been building Food by Sung LLC, a chef driven private dining and catering company, focusing on hospitality, professionalism, and craftsmanship. Her dishes are enjoyed by thousands, some of the happy clients and guests include Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, General Colin Powell, George Stephanopoulos, Wes Anderson, Bill Murray, and many more.

In 2015, in effort to create more product driven, affordable business model, Chef Sung started KimChick, a Korean fried chicken fast-casual concept.
