Young Sun is a freelance recipe developer, tester, and food stylist with over 15 years of experience in the food industry. A graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education, she started cooking professionally in restaurant kitchens and spent many years working in food TV for Food Network.
Young Sun grew up in a food-obsessed family in New York City who helped inspire a lifelong love of food and travel. With both parents working all the time, she spent many hours as a kid watching cooking shows on TV. Little did she know that it would prepare her for a career as a food stylist, working on countless Food Network shows, including Iron Chef America, 30 Minute Meals, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, Beat Bobby Flay, and Guy’s Big Bite. She also developed hundreds of original recipes for Food Network magazine and the Food Network site. Before working in food media, Young Sun cooked in the kitchens at Daniel and Tabla in New York City.
