Top Chef Canada resident judge Mijune Pak launched her career back in 2009, with her blog Follow Me Foodie. Read on to learn how her travels, attention to detail and obsession with food paved the way to her success.
Ask anyone in the food industry what they think of food bloggers, and you’re going to get some very strong opinions. While some see bloggers as an integral part of our modern marketing and publishing industries, others (quite often, chefs) see them as unqualified narcissistic hobbyists.
With this in mind, some might find it odd that prominent food blogger Mijune Pak was appointed as a resident judge on the prestigious Top Chef Canada television program last year. After all, with no culinary or journalistic background how could she possibly be qualified to critique the dishes of Canada’s best culinary talent? The answer to that lies in Mijune’s unbridled passion for food.
