KOREAN COOKING SHOW
In 2014 I was part of a National Cooking Competition show, that aired in South Korea. It is a two part series, full of eating competitions, quick fire challenges, and gnarly adventures. Watch in the links below.

My first impression of Chef Ana during our meeting was: smart, capable, and talented. This is exactly what she demonstrated during the time she was at our home creating healthy and thoughtful meals for our family of five. Her deep knowledge of food and willingness to listen led to many fantastic outcomes at our dinner table.
Ana has been more than worth every penny, and has been extremely flexible and accommodating with both my schedule, and also my wanting to cook with her so I can learn. I told her when I first became a client that I wanted to eat healthier and try some new things, but also learn how to make some of it myself so I can get to the point that I'm excited to eat my own cooking. I've been eating both tastier and healthier for months because of her, and have also built up a small collection of dishes that I'm now able to make myself. Thanks Ana!
My dear friend needed someone who would cook for her and leave her nutritious meals in order to gain weight after a devastating illness. Her daughter did the research to find a great chef who could provide both nutritious and delicious food and also work with the limitations that her mother has right now. I got to do the interview. It was clear after 5 minutes that Ana was the PERFECT person to fill this position. Her positive attitude, her delightful personality, her understanding of the task before her were evident immediately. She was hired on the spot and has been nothing but wonderful since that day. She is strong on communicating to all of us involved from menu planning to making sure portions are correctly sized to providing a written menu and discussing the week’s likes and dislikes. She wants feedback each week to make sure she is providing the very best for her client. My dear friend looks forward to her day with Ana when she comes to prepare her food. Ana just brightens up her day. She’s great company, engages easily and is extremely kind and understanding of my friend’s health issues as well as her food preferences and limitations. Today I heard the best compliment..”Ana’s banana bread is actually better then my mom’s”
This comes from a very picky eater!! If you are looking for a great chef who has a great personality and great heart, Ana is that person!
Ana organized a cooking class for my moms birthday and it exceeded all expectations. The class was wonderful and the food even better! She was great at guiding everyone through the cooking steps and we all had a fantastic time! Would highly recommend 15/10
Ana planned my surprise birthday party at my daughters request. Myself and 7 of my friends were her “students” for learning to make dumplings and pesto noodles from scratch and a flat iron roast! She was so professional and fun and relaxed in the way she demonstrated our tasks and explained everything. We all had so much fun in the preparation phase and then sat down to enjoy the delicious dinner that was the fruits of our labor! I highly recommend using Ana for any event, private or public, based on her skills, personality and organizing abilities. You and your guests won’t regret it!
10 out of 10 stars****
Ana is a world class chef who will meet and exceed all expectations!
Ana’s passion for cooking began at a young age. Born in Eastern Europe and immigrating to Seattle at age 4, she has followed in the footsteps of her father in the kitchen. Spending her childhood in the kitchen with her dad, she developed a love and passion for food.
Ana's cooking is informed through her Armenian heritage, with heavy influence from Korean and Spanish cuisine. Cooking with bold spices, big flavors and an element of heat, she brings passion and fire in her cooking.
In early fall 2014, Ana traveled to Busan, Korea, to learn about the unique food culture and history the country has to offer. Shortly after returning, she participated in the Global Taste of Korea cooking competition. After winning first place, she advanced to the 2014 Nationals to represent the USA. This accomplishment placed Ana on the next flight out to South Korea once again, where she received the title of US Honorary Culinary Ambassador for Korea.
In 2016, Ana traveled to Spain to work at Monastrell and La Taberna del Gourmet, both owned by Michelin star Chef Maria Jose San Roman. There, Ana further honed her culinary chops in the art of Spanish cuisine. After returning home, Ana was the Sous Chef at Seattle’s hippest Korean-Fusion restaurant, Revel. Ana worked at Revel under acclaimed Chef Rachel Yang, James Beard nominee.
Ana is now bringing all of her experiences together and showcasing her nationality, experiences and global influence in her food.
