Born in Seoul, Korea, Nicky Kim migrated with her family to Sydney, Australia at age 14. As her parents were both working, she became the family-chef where she discovered the joys of cooking. Nicky arrived in Singapore in 2004 where she was the Marketing manager, Asia Pacific, for an IT firm. Passionate about cooking, Nicky frequently entertains her friends with exotic dishes from all over the world. She later returned to her roots preparing the traditional Korean recipes she had learnt from her mother.
Propelled by the popularity of her Korean cuisine, Nicky's Kitchen was founded in 2007, after the completion of her Master of Business Administration (MBA) studies. To ensure that she had a more consistent supply of traditional Korean ingredients that would enhance her cooking, Nicky created a balcony-farm. She has since launched her quest to source for only the freshest ingredients in Singapore for her cooking. Nicky recently graduated from At-Sunrice Culinary School with the Certificate of Food Preparation and has presented her culinary skills at major gastronomic conventions.
