Susanna Yoon is the head chocolatier, founder, and heart behind one of New York’s finest confectionaries and chocolate shops, Stick with Me. Although, Susanna did not begin her professional career in chocolates, let alone the kitchen. After working in a multitude of different industries like music, advertising, and marketing; Susanna found her true passion in a humidity-controlled chocolate room at Per Se.
In 2010, Susanna left her corporate career and enrolled in the Professional Pastry Arts program at The International Culinary Center (formerly The French Culinary Institute). While at ICC, she completed an externship with Chef Richard Leach at Park Avenue before landing her first job as a pastry cook at Cafe Boulud. Susanna spent a year honing her skills in Daniel Boulud’s restaurant before moving onto the prestigious kitchens of Per Se in August of 2011. Susanna spent two years at Per Se, working in pastry before becoming head chocolatier--mastering the art of hand-shell chocolates. Susanna attributes her intense, keen-eye for perfection to her training in Thomas Keller’s three Michelin starred kitchen.
In December of 2014, Susanna opened Stick with Me, a confectionery specializing in hand-made, luxurious treats, including 24 uniquely flavored hand-shelled bon-bons, flavored caramels, chocolate truffles, crisp brittles, toffees, nougats, nut butters, and elegant small cakes. At the boutique sweets-shop, Susanna brought the Thomas Keller touch to everything from a miniature replica of Per Se’s climate-controlled chocolate room to the green-tape the staff uses to label trays of chocolate. This attention to detail and dedication to excellence is what makes Susanna’s chocolates better than the rest! No matter what you choose at Stick with Me, Susanna has ensured it’s going to be one of the best sweets you’ve ever had!
