Organized by: Kristin Sollenne
EVENT DATE Nov 18, 2014
I'm a strong believer in helping others and doing what you're passionate about. I'm the Executive Chef of a group of restaurants in New York, NY, as well as a certified nutritionist. I'm a self-taught chef that discovered an interest and talent in creating fresh spins on classic Italian dishes while growing up in California with my Italian-American family. I honed in on creating wholesome meals without compromising on flavor as I assisted my parents in attaining their weight-loss goals while still enjoying their favorite foods.
I've had regular appearances on WCBS’s Morning News and WLNY’s “Live from the Couch,” as well as a feature on NBC’s “Today” show, Fox5 Good Day New York, Fox Business and guest judge on Food Network's Beat Bobby Flay and Kitchen Casino. In 2014, I was featured on season ten of Next Food Network Star as a mentor to finalist Lucca Della Casa. The appearances are focused on teaching my "Farm-to-Table" contemporary food philosophy and lightened-up Italian fare approachable tips.
The money raised will be used to purchase cooking stations for customers coming to "Kristin's Table" events to learn new recipes, processes, flavor combinations and wine pairings. Cooking should be a fun joyous experience and I look forward to being able to change the way people cook and eat!
