Jessica Yoon has loved to cook, bake and eat for as long as she can remember. She turned her hobby into a profession when she decided to go to culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. She studied both cuisine and pâtisserie and graduated at the top of her class.

After a few years of working in the kitchen and as a product manager for café-bakery brands, Jessica went back to school to earn a master's degree in food studies at New York University. During her time there, she learned about the cultural, historical and sociological aspects of food.

Although professionally trained, Jessica also credits learning from many phenomenal home cooks, especially her mom. The knowledge she acquired by watching and cooking alongside those cooks—mostly women—has been invaluable to her.
