Kristen Kish          

Winner of "Top Chef Season 10: Seattle," Co-host of "36 Hours" on the Travel Channel

Born in South Korea and adopted into a family in Kentwood, MI, Kristen Kish showed an affinity for cooking at a young age. Her mother suggested she go to culinary school and since attending Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago, Kristen has never looked back.

After moving to Boston, Kristen has worked in many high-profile restaurants including Michelin-star Chef Guy Martin's Sensing and Barbara Lynch's Stir as Chef de Cuisine, overseeing all back of house operations, including the design and execution of nightly menus and demonstration dinners for 10 guests. Kristen went on to compete on Top Chef where she won the coveted title, becoming the second female chef to win the prestigious competition. Most recently, Kristen was Chef de Cuisine of Menton, Chef Barbara Lynch's fine dining restaurant.
