THE MIND OF A CHEF
Fire

 

Chef David Kinch has forged a distinctive culinary path, putting him at the forefront of new contemporary California cuisine with his restaurant Manresa. Influenced by French and modern Catalan cooking, Kinch finds inspiration from European traditions and refinement, American ingenuity and the bounty California offers. His pursuit of exceptional products inspired an exclusive partnership with Love Apple Farms, where most ingredients for Manresa are grown. For nine consecutive years, Manresa has held two Michelin stars. Following a fire in 2014, Manresa reopened in 2015, receiving a four-star review from the San Francisco Chronicle. His first cookbook, Manresa: An Edible Reflection, debuted in October 2013 and was nominated for the James Beard Foundation “Cooking from a Professional Point of View” award.
