Who Is Ann Kim?
Ann Kim is a Chef from Minneapolis, Minnesota, who has appeared on Netflix's new docuseries, 'Chef’s Table: Pizza.' She is a chef of Korean descent who moved to America with her family when she was only four years old.
They made their home in a suburb of Apple Valley, Minnesota, where Ann grew up most of her life.
Ann was involved in the kitchen from quite a young age as she regularly helped her mother and grandmother cook traditional Korean dishes. She not only fell in love with Korea and its culture due to this practice but also discovered her love of cooking and food in general.
People would be surprised to know Ann was also quite interested in the film industry. Hence, after completing her Bachelor’s Degree in English from New York City’s Columbia University, she began working as a professional actress.
She spent roughly eight years working in movies and TV shows before realizing that the culinary sector was her true passion.
In 2010, she finally followed her dream and went on to open her first Pizzeria, Pizzeria Lola, in Minneapolis.
As Ann served excellent cuisine, her popularity expanded by leaps and bounds, and Ann soon found herself opening her second business, Hello Pizza, which specialized in Pizzas, salads, and meatballs.
She refused to draw a boundary despite having two restaurants working for her because she was confident in her company's growing ability. As a result, in 2016, she opened her third restaurant, Young Joni, which featured beautiful wood-fired dishes in addition to all of her famous pizzas.
She always utilizes fresh ingredients and homemade dough, but her pizzas are best renowned for their unconventional toppings, including one that involves kimchi. She did this successfully, fusing eastern and western foods, and was even praised for her work.
She relocated to America in 1977 when she was four years old.
