Kristen Kish, Part II

Stephanie Cmar knows Kristen Kish. Years before Top Chef, Fast Foodies and Iron Chef, Stephanie and Kristen were just two young chefs working and living together in Boston.

This week, they share stories from their friendship that involve crop dusting in a grocery store, being pantsless on a FaceTime call with a celebrity and Kristen coming out (and Stephanie wondering if Kristen was in love with her).
