Soulivity Magazine


From a challenging and difficult beginning as an orphaned child in Korea, to her success as a notable chef and entrepreneur, Marja Vongerichten’s passion for uniting the world through the gift of food, specifically Korean food, has endured it all.  I was given the chance to spend some quality time with Marja, to talk about this incredible story of heartbreak, love, family, and success.


In the next part of our interview, we learn about: Marja’s new life in New York; meeting and marrying the renown chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten; becoming a mother; and, reconnecting with her birthplace through her notable series, Kimchi Chronicles.  Soulivity calls her story…”From Korea, With Love”.
