Do That / It's Culture

Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month at Macy’s with Chef Kristen Kish

The diverse cuisines of Asia have long, rich histories, some dating back thousands of years. But where are they headed in the future? In America, the land of melting pots and pioneers, that direction is partly in your hands…and woks and pans. In support of Asian Pacific American Heritage month, Macy’s is hosting a number of demos across the nation and one of them is coming to HOUSTON!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Talk & Taste with Kristen Kish

On May 4th at 6:30pm in the Housewares section of Macy’s in the Houston Galleria, Chef Kristen Kish will be hosting a “Talk & Taste” demonstration, where we all get to sample her innovative Korean cuisine. Tickets to the demo are free and all are welcome!

On display will also be beautiful Asian table settings and an authentic Korean Night Market reception with tastings, samples and more! Your favorite Houston bloggers (aka Natalie and I) will be there too! As social media fanatics, we’ll be giving a tutorial and tips on how to create the most mouth-watering, awe-inspiring Snapchat and Instagram stories. We’d love to see you there!

We hosted a similar event last year for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month at Macy’s and had a blast! We saw a cooking demo, took home a goodie bag filled with traditional Asian ingredients and got a signed cookbook from the featured chef. It was so cool! See pic below 🙂

Bonus: Make any housewares or cookware purchase of $50 or more at the event and get a photo with Kristen and take home an exclusive gift!

Why We’re Excited to Meet Kristen Kish

In addition to killing it in the kitchen and working at many high-profile restaurants like Michelin-star chef Guy Martin’s Sensing, Barbara Lynch’s Stir and Menton, Chef Kristen Kish WON Bravo’s Top Chef Season 10! She’s the second female chef to win the prestigious competition. GOALS AMIRIGHT!?

Most recently, Kish co-hosted 36 Hours, a Travel Channel show that partnered with the New York Times to bring the hit newspaper column to television. In each episode, co-hosts Kish and Kyle Martino arrived in a new city where they had 36 hours to explore the most delicious foods and hot spots, and experience the best attractions unique to each place. Have you seen the NYT 36 Hours in Houston article?

If you’re super excited for the event (like us) and want to get a taste of what’s to come, check out these fantastic recipes on the Macy’s website here.
