Happy Birthday Kombu Kitchen!

Kombu Kitchen is now officially one year old! We recently celebrated our first birthday earlier in May. It’s honestly quite hard to believe our service has been live for a year already.  (see Kombu featured in the upcoming June issue of Boston Magazine)

I started small with only six 18’x24″ food trays and your truly doing all the cooking in the wee hours of the morning every week.  We quickly outgrew our first tiny kitchen space in Boston within 6 months.  In January we moved to a fabulous commercial commissary in Lynn, MA with a view of the ocean and plenty of room to grow.  We still work in the wee hours of the morning, but now the kitchen team has grown a bunch!  We have myself Kristen, my husband Keven, Amanda, Paige, and Meg in the kitchen every week creating your meals – all 800+ of them every week!    We also added new services.  Now in addition to our weekly meal service we offer cleanses, weight management plans, parties and and event catering.

We want to thank each of you for making this first year possible.  Thanks for your loyalty, your continued praise and enthusiasm, and your referrals.  We have grown from 4 clients one year ago to over 50 clients, with new friends coming on board every single week.

You can look forward to another amazing year of growth ahead with new recipes, new services, and exciting new events like a Kombu pop up restaurant coming later this summer.

Lastly as this is Memorial Day weekend, please enjoy the holiday with your families and join us in taking time to remember and honor those who paid the ultimate price for our country.  We enjoy so much in our lives because of their sacrifices.

In Health

Chef Kristen

“The Right Stuff” Winner!

This past Sunday, April 28th, Salvatore’s Restaurant in Boston’s Seaport hosted “The Right Stuff,” a cook-off competition between two culinary students from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Boston, MA highlighting the culinary talent of tomorrow.

Myself and my opponent, Jesus Olmedo, each prepared a 3-course meal that worked within the conceptual framework of Salvatore’s Restaurants, yet at the same time, pushed the culinary boundaries and expressed our own individual creativity. Deciding the winner that evening was the interactive audience and a panel of celebrity judges including:

Kerry Byrne, Food Writer, Boston Herald; Cheryl Fenton, Freelance Food + Lifestyle Writer; Rachel Leah Blumenthal, Contributing Writer, Eater Boston; Rachel Cossar, Boston City Editor for The Daily Meal; Jenny Johnson, Co-Host of NECN’s “TV Diner,”; Leah Mennies, Food Editor of Boston magazine; and Peter Ackerman, Executive Vice President of Salvatore’s Restaurants and Sal’s Pizza.

Here is the all vegan menu I served that took home first place!

1st Course: Blood Orange + Fennel Salad + Microgreens + San Pellegrino Blood Orange Reduction + Orange Pine nut Brittle

2nd Course: Crispy Baby Artichoke + Farro Risotto Fresh Minted Spring Pea Sugo Verde

3rd Course: Lemon Thyme Mock Duck Confit + Porcini Mushroom Ragu+ Creamy Chived Polenta + Roasted Spring Vegetables + Vegan Bagna Cauda

Thank you to all the judges and audeince for your feedback, encouragement, and enthusiasm – it was a thrill to meet you all!
