Where I Go Out

At My Venues

"Couldn’t pass up the chance to finally try @manresabread. I went to the French Culinary Institute in 2012, just minutes away from Manresa in Los Gatos. Manresa Bread opened a few years after I had already graduated culinary school and moved back home. I’ve waited years to try their breads and pastries!"

"2008 vs 2018! Growing up only 5 minutes away from @manresaca 💮💮💮, I didn’t meet @davidkinch until I was setup to be his assistant at « Gastronomie sur la Seine » in Paris. (📸: @tite_cuillere) Here he is schooling me on 🔪🐟. This meeting eventually lead to staging at Manresa for a hot second when I had returned back to California in between stages in 🇫🇷. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This sunny Sunday, I had the pleasure of dining @thebywaterca. I’ve never been to #NoLa let alone eaten a #crawfishboil; what better way to do it than with Kinch! Amazing meal included lessons on how to take apart a crawfish 🦐 and suck it’s 🧠 out + a Vietnamese-inspired noodle soup 🍜 dish that is traditional to the NoLa region (with brisket!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To top off an amazing meal, I decided to try eating @manresabread. I learned I’m intolerant to most American wheat versus actual gluten; however Manresa Bread 🍞 uses mulled heirloom grains 🌾 that are alive coupled with long, slow, cool fermentation with natural yeasts. In other words, it’s not Monsanto wheat that’s been fucked with and sprayed to shit with glyphosate. I am currently typing this the day after, feeling rhinitis free and full of energy. 👏🏻 Can’t believe I waited this long to try it 🤗. Many thanks for another memorable meal for the 📚 ! T-9 days.... what a weekend going down memory lane. #gratitude ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #chefsofinstagram #truecooks #michelinstar #michelinguide #michelin2018 #michelinstars #manresa #davidkinch #grateful #gratitudedaily #cheflife #sheisnotlost #liveauthentic #linecook #foodietravel #foodadventure #foodgraphy #miammiam #onmytable #fromthetop #wheretoeat #chef💯#instachef #foodielife #culinaryarts #culinaryadventures #losgatos"
