In a wide-ranging conversation, acclaimed chef and restaurateur, Sohui Kim will discuss her career, her two Brooklyn restaurants, Good Fork and Insa, as well as her upcoming launch of Brooklyn’s legendary Gage & Tollner. She will also describe some of her other projects, including her cookbooks, The Good Fork and Korean Home Cooking.
A classically trained chef, Sohui Kim’s highly personal, totally accessible style of cooking has ensured that The Good Fork and Insaa re both beloved neighborhood eateries and destination restaurants. Her cooking joyfully and skillfully integrates both Western and Korean cuisine influences. Chef Sohui is well regarded for her sense of sohnmat, a Korean phrase that roughly translates to “taste of the hand,” or an ease and agility with making food taste delicious.
Sohui Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and lived there until the age of ten. In 1981, her family immigrated to the United States. After graduating from Barnard College, she was hunting for life’s meaning and discovered her passion was to cook. So instead of applying to law school, she decided to go to The Institute of Culinary Education. Sohui Kim completed her gastronomic education at some of the best New American restaurants, with an externship under chefs Dan Barber and Michael Anthony at Blue Hill and then worked for Anita Lo at Annisa. In 2005 she was convinced by her husband to go forth on her own and opened The Good Fork, this marked the start of her career as chef and co-restaurateur. In 2015, she opened the Korean restaurant Insa and with her co-owners plans to reopen Gage & Tollner in Fall 2019.
