Welcome to What You're Missing KC! The blog adventures of a KC Foodie.
I believe the Kansas City metro area has quite an eclectic mix of culinary delights. I am making it my full time mission to eat, drink, cook, shop and explore my way around KC. If I happen to stumble upon something other than food that I think you are missing, I will definitely share it on here as well!
Chef Carl Thorne-Thomsen named FOOD & WINE magazine's The People's Best New Chef: Midwest
Chef Carl Thorne-Thomsen grew up
in Connecticut and graduated from Cornell with a degree in English
Literature. He lived in that area until the mid-nineties and then moved
to Wichita to attend a Masters of Fine Arts program at WSU in creative
writing.While in Wichita, he stayed busy writing short fiction, long fiction, poetry and plays. Soon that
passion was replaced by an interest in food and he taught himself
enough about cooking to land a job at a small gourmet food
store/cafe/espresso bar.There he met his future wife Susan, who also happened to be one of the owners.After three years the couple moved to Kansas City and started a family. Thorne-Thomsen worked as a line cook at 40 Sardines for the next three years. In
2007, when Chef Michael Smith opened Michael Smith Restaurant in the
Crossroads, Smith hired him as chef de cuisine and he ran the kitchen
there and then at Extra Virgin when it opened for three years.
