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 this part of our interview, Marja’s shares with us the first part of her journey.  Her life in Korea, meeting and becoming adopted by new parents, the origins of her passion for cooking, and her journey to reconnect with her birth mother.  So, find a comfortable spot to relax, sit back, and let your heartspace open.
