The dish on Kyle Connaughton
At age 9, Kyle Connaughton had a sushi dinner that cemented his future in food. After training at one of the oldest Japanese restaurants in Southern California, he went on to study at California Sushi Academy and later received private instruction from Master Sushi Chef Andy Matsuda at the Sushi Chef Institute.
In 2003, Connaughton landed a position at Michel Bras’ Toya Japan in Hokkaido, where he deepened his knowledge of kaiseki, izakaya, soba, and sushi. In 2006, he opened The Fat Duck Experimental Kitchen for Heston Blumenthal as head chef of research and development, before returning to the states.
In Healdsburg, California, Connaughton and his wife Katina debuted SingleThread in 2016, a restaurant, inn, and farm built on the ethos of Japanese omotenashi: the spirit of selfless hospitality. With two Michelin stars under his apron, Connaughton only continues to go from strength to strength.
The dish on Dominique Crenn
Dominique Crenn, the chef-proprietor of two Michelin-starred Atelier Crenn in San Francisco, focuses on cuisine as a craft and the community as an inspiration.

A culinary whirlwind, Crenn was awarded World’s Best Female Chef in 2016 by San Pellegrino’s 50 Best. In 2017, Atelier Crenn debuted at no. 83 on the organisation’s list of world’s best restaurants. She aims to promote innovation, sustainability, and equality through her work.
