37-year-old Shirley Chung attained a notable amount of fame in the kitchen following her third-place finish on the eleventh season of Bravo’s Top Chef: New Orleans, just barely losing to Nina Compton and Nicholas Elmi. Shirley impressed Padma Lakshmi and her fellow judges with her cuisine without borders, drawing from Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and French traditions.
Before making a splash in the culinary world, Shirley received a business degree from the University of California and worked in Silicon Valley for four years before deciding to refocus on food. Shirley hit the books and the kitchen at the California Culinary Academy, earning a Culinary Art degree.
Shirley started out staging at The French Laundry before taking a position at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon. After moving to Nevada, Shirley opened a Las Vegas location for Thomas Keller’s chain. The Las Vegas culinary scene provided many opportunities to Shirley, who served at Guy Savoy’s self-named French eatery, Mario Batali’s B&B Ristorante, and Jose Andre’s China Poblano. While working at China Poblano, Shirley developed a passion for Mexican cuisine and rediscovered the culinary traditions of her homeland.
When she’s not in the kitchen, Shirley is an avid traveler, always looking for new cultural cuisines to add to her repertoire. In the summer of 2014, Shirley received an offer to take part in the latest celebrity cruise line, Top Chef at Sea. Shirley sets sail with fellow cheftestants Tiffany Derry, Casey Thompson, and Hosea Rosenberg aboard the Celebrity Reflection, headed for the Eastern Caribbean on the 15th of November.
