Chef Kirin Chun grew up in a family of cooks and began his culinary career at age 16 for restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, gaining experience and accolades along the way. He joined the El Gaucho Seattle team in 2014 as a pantry cook, and was quickly promoted to Executive Sous Chef.
In late 2017, Kirin was selected to join Miller’s Guild as the Chef de Cuisine and was quickly promoted to Executive Chef. His mastery with the Infierno grill and signature Korean-inspired flavors have transformed the menu at Miller’s Guild, while his positive demeanor guides the culture. He particularly enjoys the interactions he has with the guests seated at the chef’s counter and says that open dynamic creates a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
Kirin stays on top of new cooking trends through a lot of Instagram, cookbooks, and going out to eat whenever possible. In his free time, Kirin enjoys working on cars and motorcycles, fixing anything, drawing and writing.
