This week’s guest, Yunnie Morena Kim, Digital Food Content Creator Restaurateur for KimChiAvocado is a lover of food (making it, eating it, sharing it), daughter of Korean immigrants, a wife and mother of two sons, who grew up in Southern California and literally married the boy next door. At a young age, she realized the impact that delicious, home-cooked food has. Growing up with two immigrant parents, she watched her mom and dad work hard every day and yet always came home to make a beautiful meal for them to share as a family.

Her first career was in fashion, and she owned and operated several stores within the iconic Fred Segal Santa Monica. Later her husband and her took over her parents’ 40-year-old restaurant on the Santa Monica Pier, The Albright. They currently own and operate The EST 1977 Group, a boutique restaurant group which specializes in revitalizing legacy businesses and curated food concepts.

 Take a listen to this week’s episode as Michelle & Yunnie discuss her journey and the celebration of how food connects people, brings family together, and creates community.
