FoodChasers’ Kitchen & Chef Hoon Rhee

August 18, 2022

We're taking you on a culinary journey with Dr. Maya, Dr. Kala Johnstone and Chef Hoon Rhee. Philly twins Dr. Maya and Dr. Kala began their careers as Philadelphia public school teachers, but soon felt the pull of their vision boards and decided to launch FoodChasers' Kitchen. Since opening in December 2021, they’ve cooked for memorable guests, including Salt-N-Pepa and Khelani, and were featured in a Pepsi commercial supporting Black-owned businesses. Philly born and bred, Chef Rhee was recently named executive chef at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He’s done it all in the culinary industry, working as a line and pastry chef, bartender, barista and everything in between in restaurants around the world, including Philly’s Lacroix at The Rittenhouse Hotel, Jean-Georges Philadelphia, Morimoto, The Modern, Masa, Daniel and others.  
The hosts also share their perfect Philly itineraries.
