Judy Joo is a Korean-American chef patron, cookbook author, television personality and entrepreneur. A graduate of Columbia University, her career began in the banking industry until she bravely left the trading floor to pursue her passion— cooking.

In 2004, Judy graduated at the top of her class from the prestigious French Culinary Institute. After many years working in some of the most acclaimed kitchens around the world, she opened her first restaurant, “Jinjuu”, in Soho, London and subsequently a Hong Kong and Mayfair, London outpost.

As the host of Food Network’s Korean Food Made Simple and one of four iron chefs on the show Iron Chef UK, Judy Joo has achieved celebrity chef status in one of the most highly competitive and traditionally male dominated fields.

As a writer, chef and television personality, Judy’s nails must always be in tiptop form as she can usually be spotted creating recipes, writing her next best selling cookbook or making various television appearances.

We love Judy for her entrepreneurial spirit, for breaking barriers, for demystifying Korean food no matter your skill level and for being a role model to women everywhere.

A portion from the sale of this nail color will be donated to Judy’s charity of choice.
