Originally from South Korea, Angela Borah grew up in Spain, Ghana and Peru before calling New York her home. Her journey began in art history and the arts, before coming to the realization her true passion lies in pastry and chocolate. She garnered experience at various establishments in NYC until she landed a position at the notable Del Posto restaurant. Her trajectory led her to the Michelin-starred mainstay, The Modern, where she helped manage the pastry kitchen under the guidance of Executive Pastry Chef Marc Aumont. In 2014, Angela was awarded first place in the Plated Dessert category at the Pastry Live competition in Atlanta. Thereafter, she continued to hone her skills and augment her training at Thomas Keller’s three-Michelin-starred Per Se as well as New York boutique MarieBelle Chocolate. 2016 reunited her with Chef Marc Aumont to be on the opening team of two-Michelin-starred Chef Gabriel Kreuther’s atelier, Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate. As Head Chocolatier, she oversees the already celebrated chocolate program where more recently, Angela helped win silver medals for two signature chocolates from the chocolate shop in the 2018 International Chocolate Awards World Final.
