You can usually find her behind the food bar, holding her own in a busy station. Sweet could be her middle name, but let’s get real. She’s definitely not taking any smack from the guys! It’s chef Amanda Kenny, of course! She was Michael’s right hand in the studio at January’s cookbook shoot, so without further adieu, we give you…
Name: Amanda Kenny.
Childhood ambition: To be whatever made me happy in life and to let no one tell me otherwise.
Favorite dish at MGFD: Hard to choose one, but I would say the ceviche.
Most popular food prepared in your home: Potato gratin or Empanadas (the way abuelita taught me) or Quinoa salad with lemon vinaigrette.
Wildest food ever eaten: I had a wild experience eating food, in that I went to a restaurant, in Cologne Germany, where you eat in complete darkness. It was mind blowing! You could hear everything going on, from foot steps, to other conversations, and the cooks in the kitchen. The food was good and had so many different textures and underline flavors. I then went to the kitchen and saw the food, which had beautiful presentations, but for what I imagined.
