Check out our Q&A below to learn about Chef Jackie’s literary hero (it’s the same person as her culinary hero), her love for Erykah Badu–and for the details on two original recipes: a yuzu pudding cake and a roasted potato salad, both of which rule.

Our Girl Olivia Kim Named in AdAge’s 40 Under 40

Sure, age really ain’t nothing but a number—still, when you’ve managed to amass an international friends-and-collaborators list that reads like a who’s who of the fashion industry before you hit the big 4-0, well, that’s something to celebrate.
