Barbara Lynch on Protégée Kristen Kish: Her Top Chef Win Is Amazing for ‘All Women Chefs’

A proud boss.

We checked in with Barbara Lynch, Kristen Kish's boss at Boston's Stir, to get her postshow reactions. Not shockingly, Lynch is delighted for the Top Chef winner: "This is so amazing, not just for Boston but for all women chefs. She totally thinks outside the box and is so creative, which I love. She never does the easy or obvious when cooking," Lynch says. "We couldn’t be prouder of our girl. I knew she had it in her!” Does this mean a promotion?
