Chef Yun Eunyoung, who started baking as a hobby as a child, started confectionery in earnest at the age of 17. She participated in various competitions and won in categories such as chocolate showpiece, sugar showpiece, and pastry award while attending a vocational school. Through these experiences, she fell deeply in love with the dessert’s beautiful form and artistic expression. At the same time, she felt a thirst for the essence of pastry- the taste, flavor, various ingredients, and the cooking methods. And after graduating from vocational school, she gained experience in high-level pastry shops and hotels, allowing her to elevate her sense of taste and flavor, learning from great chefs. Chef Yun Eunyoung began to establish her own pastry style through these experiences, and in 2012 finally opened her first pastry boutique, ‘Garuharu,’ in Seoul. Garuharu’s desserts have become more popular among dessert epicures through word of mouth for their variation on classic desserts, use of a variety of ingredients and techniques not limited to desserts, and beautiful designs. Hence, it was known as a place where you can’t get a taste unless you line up early. Currently, Chef Yun Eunyoung runs the Garuharu Pastry Academy in Seoul and travels worldwide, including Asia, Europe, and United States, to share Garuharu-style pastries.
