Ann Kim is the Chef/Owner of Pizzeria Lola, Hello Pizza, Young Joni, Sooki & Mimi and Kim’s (coming fall 2023). As a Korean immigrant raised in Minnesota, she credits her culinary palate and love of cooking to helping her mother and grandmother make traditional Korean staples such as doenjang, gochujang and kimchi. In 2019, Ann became the first woman and first person of color from Minneapolis to receive the James Beard Award for “Best Chef Midwest.” She has been featured in the New York TimesVogue and Wall Street Journal, and on Netflix’s hit series, “Chef’s Table: Pizza.”
