Shim was born in Seoul City, South Korea. At the age of 21, he applied to the famous ICIF Cookery School located in Costigliole d’Asti Piemonte, Northern Italy. This was followed by an apprenticeship at the fine dining restaurant Marco Fadiga`s Bistrot in Bologna, Italy. He then moved onto Ristorante ll Sole as commi-chef.
Upon completion of his schooling and apprenticeship in Italy Shim worked many years as a chef in a number of restaurants in Korea, Japan and Australia before moving to Sydney in 2013 where he was the head chef of Criniti’s for 5 years.
Shim creates Korean/Australian cuisine using only the best seasonal produce. We are pleased to have Shim as a Personal Chef in Sydney.
