Shirley Chung Biography

Born and raised in Beijing China, Shirley Chung was exposed to international cuisine at an early age by her grandmother, Liang Si Yi, former Director of The Red Cross in China. Chung immigrated to America at age 17 for college and worked in Silicon Valley for a few years after graduating.

Chung decided to follow her passion for food so she left her career in high tech behind and enrolled California Culinary Academy San Francisco. She is trained in classic French and Italian cuisine, worked and opened restaurants for Thomas Keller, Guy Savoy and Mario Batali. After she opened CarneVino as Chef de Cuisine for the Batali group, CarneVino earned multiple awards for Best Steak House internationally.

Prior to being a finalist on season 11 of “Top Chef” in New Orleans, she held the Executive Chef Position at China Poblano, by Jose Andres, which was nominated for the Best New Restaurant Award by the James Beard Foundation in 2011. While working at China Poblano, she fell in love with Mexican cuisine and learned more about her own heritage. In 2014, Chung opened a restaurant in Orange County, Twenty Eight, featuring modern Chinese cuisine.

Chung is the author of "Chinese Heritage Cooking From My American Kitchen," a cookbook detailing her famous approach to Chinese food. Her next restaurant concept Ms. Chi Cafe, is now open in Culver City and a satellite location is at The Fields LA food hall in DTLA.
