Macy’s Celebrates Asian Culture With Chef Kish

Macy’s recently celebrated Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with chef Kristen Kish. Kish, the winner of Bravo’s “Top Chef” Season 10, hosted in-store events at six Macy’s stores across the country, highlighting the Asian food experience with special tastings and more.

Kish will also discuss the importance of her heritage and its specific influence on her culinary style.

“Cuisine is a vital element of Asian-Pacific culture and heritage and we are honored to welcome Kristen Kish, a celebrated culinary master chef, as she helps Macy’s celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month in stores,” said Dineen Garcia, Macy’s vp/diversity and inclusion strategies.

Kish is the winner of Bravo’s Top Chef Season 10, becoming the second female chef to win the competition. Most recently, Kish was co-host of “36 Hours,” a Travel Channel production that partnered with The New York Times to bring the popular newspaper column of the same title to television. Kish will release her first book, “Kristen Kish Cooking” this fall.

“I am thrilled to partner with Macy’s for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month to honor so many cultures and styles of food and the many wonderful people and stories that inspire me on a daily basis,” said Kish. “Food helps people tell a story and allows them to proudly embrace who they are and where they come from— and Macy’s helps explore and celebrate that.”
