Flavour Tip: Stir in chopped pickles for a quick tartar sauce for any fish dish from fish and chips to baked salmon.

Soo was raised in a traditional Korean household, on homemade kimchi and by parents who valued real food and honest ingredients. Some of her earliest memories revolve around time spent with her mother cooking, helping to stock their family store with authentic Korean fare in an area that had no similar options, and thus began Soo’s love affair with food.

She began her culinary journey at George Brown Culinary School, in Toronto, Canada, leading to a whirlwind circus work experience in Vancouver, BC, Dublin, Ireland, London, England, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Russia, San Francisco, and finally back to Toronto. She transitioned to the editorial magazine world of test kitchens, running the food sections of Chatelaine and Canadian Living. She cut her professional teeth at Loblaws test kitchen, Canada’s most extensive grocery chain, learning about product development.

Before landing at Hedessent, Soo was a freelance recipe developer, writer, and stylist, contributing to Loblaws, Sobeys, Walmart, CBC, Food & Drink, and Clean Eating, among other leading brands and publications. When she’s not busy testing flavours and building new recipes for our customers to enjoy, she enjoys her time in Toronto with her husband and son, where they routinely obsess over great fried rice and making the perfect French fries.
