The Nomiku team this past weekend had such an amazing (and very delicious time) at the Asian Counseling and Referral Service’s Annual Benefit Gala this past weekend in Seattle! Among the chefs cooking for the event, none other than Top Chef Seattle winner, Kristen Kish! We were beyond excited to see her…
…if you couldn’t tell.
She made a delicious braised beef short rib, with white miso, kohlrabi, and lobster nage. It was beyond amazing–but we secretly hope she uses her Nomiku next time ;)
If you don’t remember from our Kickstarter campaign, Kristen had some very nice things to say about her very own Nomiku!
We also had the privilege to hear her speak about her post Top Chef life while giving a live demo–lots of traveling, and as you would probably expect–work, work, work. She mentioned on the show that she wanted to go back to Korea to get back in touch with her roots after being adopted at a young age. Because of a crazy work schedule, she hasn’t had a chance, but hopes to do so soon once she gets a break.
Before we left, we had to give her another hug and add to her Nomiku-ness with a Nomiku t-shirt!
There’s our marketing exec getting a little too handsy with Kristen. He claims he was just pointing out the “Nom” design on the shirt. Sure, sure…
We are so fortunate to work for such a great company and to have support from amazing culinary talents. Here’s to meeting more of our favorite chefs and eating more of their food.
Happy and grateful,
The Nomiku team
