Born and raised in Paraguay, Asuncion, Chef Injae grew up in a Korean household. Raised by his grandmother, he spent most of his time in the kitchen. He was exposed to two different cultures and foods. His grandmother taught him the fundamentals of farm to table and scratch cooking. As a teenager, his family moved to Los Angeles, in the culture shock and melting pot of Koreatown’s vast array of culinary fares.
Chef Injae, attended Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts Los Angeles, where he expanded his knowledge of cooking and fine tuned his technics. He worked in different restaurants as a server, host, and manager to pay his way through culinary school. He went on to finish his internship at Waterloo & City under renowned Chef Branden Collins, where he was also given residency upon graduation.
With the combination of being exposed to farm to table and scratch cooking from his grandmother, to graduating culinary school, and his vast knowledge of restaurant work, Chef Injae brings that same motto, determination, and mentality to his cooking.
As a private chef, he has worked for high profiled clients through out Los Angeles. Focusing extensively with his clients to tailor fit a menu that caters to their needs. With organic ingredients, from gluten free, vegan, pescetarian, ethnic, to American, Chef Injae can customize and create something special for you and your guests.
