Yoon Ok-hee majored in food and nutrition and went on to lecture at the university level. She lived in Japan for four years where she became interested in food from different parts of the world. Returning to Korea, she learned Korean traditional cuisine from Professor Kang In-hee, a master of Joseon period cuisine, and grew her knowledge and passion for Korean cuisine after studying, a Korean traditional medical book, “Donguibogam.” In addition to more than 20 years of operating her own cooking academy and lecturing at universities, Yoon has expanded her expertise through the Korean family restaurant Sannae Deulnae, the Korea Food and Culture Institute, and the Cheong Wa Dae Sarangchae Korean Food Experience Center.
