Kish’s culinary journey began with her education at Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago, where she earned an A.A. in culinary arts. She gained significant recognition in the culinary world as an instructor at Stir, a culinary demonstration kitchen in Boston, before being promoted to chef de cuisine.

In 2017, she released a book of recipes co-authored with Meredith Erickson, “Kristen Kish Cooking: Recipes and Techniques.” In May 2018, Kish became the chef at her new restaurant, Arlo Grey, in Austin, Texas.

Kish’s career has been marked by significant collaborations and appearances. She competed in Bravo’s “Top Chef” in 2012, where she was invited to participate alongside her culinary school friend Stephanie Cmar.

Kish co-hosted “36 Hours” with Kyle Martino and is featured on TruTV’s “Fast Foodies” alongside Jeremy Ford and Justin Sutherland.
