GUNSHOW HOSTS “TOP CHEF” WINNER CHEF KRISTEN KISH FOR SEPT. 10
“HIRED GUNS” DINNER
Limited Tickets on Sale Aug. 10 at 8 a.m.
ATLANTA (Aug. 9, 2017) – Gunshow’s “Hired Guns” dinner is back on Sunday, Sept. 10 with chef Kristen Kish, “Top Chef” Season 10 winner, cooking alongside chef/owner Kevin Gillespie and executive chef Joey Ward. Kish previously worked as the chef de cuisine of Menton, chef Barbara Lynch’s fine dining restaurant in Boston and is currently traveling the world and writing her cookbook.
Tickets for the Sept. 10 dinner are $95 per person and go on sale Thursday, Aug. 10 at 8 a.m. via Hand-Picked Atlanta.
Born in South Korea, Kish displayed a passion for cooking from a young age. After successfully graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago, she worked in many high-profile restaurants, including Michelin-star chef Guy Martin’s Sensing and Barbara Lynch’s Stir as chef de cuisine. Kish went on to compete in the 10th season of Bravo’s “Top Chef” and was the second female to win the title. From there, she became chef de cuisine of Menton in Boston. Most recently, Kish guest-starred as a co-host of “36 Hours,” a Travel Channel show that highlights the most delicious foods, hot spots and experiences unique to each place the show visits.
“Hired Guns” began in 2013 as a way to lure some of the country’s most talked about chefs to Gunshow for a showcase of their flavors and personalities alongside the restaurant’s featured items. Gillespie and Ward have continued to exceed culinary expectations with the series by welcoming Hakim Rahal and Pablo Rojas of Provisions in Montreal, Jennifer Carroll of Requin, Minneapolis’ Grae Nonas and New Orleans sensation Justin Devillier into the Gunshow kitchen this year alone.
The remaining 2017 "Hired Guns" lineup features Cara Stadler of Maine’s Bao Bao Dumpling House and Tao Yuan on Nov. 5. Tickets go on sale Oct. 5 at 8 a.m.
Gunshow is located at 924 Garrett Street. The restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. Reservations are encouraged but not required. Guests may park in the Glenwood Park parking lot and on the street. For more information, visit gunshowatl.com or call 404-380-1886.
