Jungsik (New York, NY)
Chef Eunji Lee was born in Busan, South Korea and fulfilled a lifelong dream of studying pastry arts when she moved to France in 2006. Classically trained at the Institute National de la Boulangerie Pâtisserie in Rouen and at the Ecole Ferrandi in Paris, Lee spent three years in the acclaimed restaurant Ze Kitchen Galerie of Chef William Ledeuil and then trained under Chef Alain Ducasse and Pastry Chef Cedric Grolet at three Michelin-starred Le Meurice for another four years. When the opportunity arose for Eunji to combine her classic French training with Korean ingredients, she jumped at the chance to become the Pastry Chef of Jungsik. Chef Lee became the first non-European contestant and finalist in Season 4 of the French competition Qui sera le procain grand pâtissier? and her Dessert Tasting Menu at Jungsik was featured in the New York Times in August 2017.
