Founded in 2016, YUMCHI is the brainchild of kimchi expert Lily Hirasawa. Lily's traditional family recipe has been passed down three generations from her grandmother, famous amongst her friends in Korea for making the best kimchi. 

Lily's passion for fermented foods spurns from a love of making time for yourself, as well as for your cooking. She believes a slower, more mindful pace of life is the key to wellbeing. In our fast-paced city life, taking time is a luxury and YUMCHI is your daily reminder to slow down, enjoy the moment and the tasty food in front of you.
