I grew up squatting next to the women folk in my family helping prepare meals for celebration and ritual. You could say that my love of Korean food and culture literally started from the ground up. I've devoted two decades to a self-directed career in the culinary arts-working at various NYC restaurants, healing centers, catering, private chef work and nutrition-based teaching. My memories and attachment to my native cuisine help me stay grounded in all my evolutions. My new style is old school - simple yet elegant, traditional yet innovative - drawing from a thousand years of vegetable based craftswomanship, healing and sustainable practices.

My guilty pleasures are packaged noodles. It's a practical yet emotional experience and one complete with chemical and so much salt!
What hosts are saying about Sung Uni
It was a beautiful experience in a circle of like-minded women. Sung Uni’s food creations were exceptionally delicious!! And you could feel she cooked it with so much love and good intentions :) Would highly recommend it!
Sung & Jenya did such a beautiful job hosting a warm and connective Full Moon brunch. The food was spectacular, the space was gorgeous, the energy pure. All of us need more people like them and more events like this in our lives.
