Top Chef’s Kristen Kish Dishes On The New Season, Plus Von Diaz On Her “Islas” Cookbook

We have a special episode for you today featuring two all-star guests. First up is Von Diaz, an Emmy Award-winning radio producer, documentarian, and food historian. Her new narrative cookbook, “Islas: A Celebration of Tropical Cooking,” is a robust and joyous record of the flavors, techniques, and stories that make up the culinary culture of the islands spanning the Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans. Von joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about the process of writing her new book, stand-out recipes to make, and more. Later in the show, Chef Kristen Kish, the new host of “Top Chef,” chats with Kerry about the beloved competition show. Season 21 kicked off last week, and Kristen, who was the winner of “Top Chef” Season 10, talks about the perspective she brings to the gig and what it’s like telling chefs to “pack their knives and go.
