Kim became Head Chef at the Savoy Grill in April, 2015, returning to the kitchen where she helped spearhead its success during the 2010 relaunch.
Recruited from within the Gordon Ramsay Group, Kim spent the previous six years as Head Chef of the York & Albany. Cheshire-born Kim brings a wealth of experience to her role in the iconic kitchen on the Strand, where revolutionary chef Auguste Escoffier once commanded the pass in the 1890s. Having trained in both the United States and the UK, Kim spent six years following a university degree in hotel and restaurant management travelling through America, earning her chef whites and honing her skills in top restaurants such as Top of The Rock in Missouri.
In 2007, she returned home to the UK where she joined the Gordon Ramsay Group as Junior Sous Chef at Boxwood Café. She later joined Plane Food and then was part of the successful opening team of the Savoy Grill under Executive Chef Stuart Gillies – now Managing Director of the Group. Kim took the spotlight on the small screen during the 2011 series of Masterchef: The Professionals, showcasing her talent and determination by reaching the semi-finals of the competitive cookery show.
While Kim has been based at the York & Albany since 2011, she has also consulted on various projects and demos for the group including travelling to Sardinia for Gordon Ramsay at Fortevillage and Gordon Ramsay at Castel Monastero in Tuscany.
