Kristen Kish doesn't need any more chances. She's the winner of "Top Chef: Seattle."
The 28-year-old chef de cuisine at Boston restaurant Stir was crowned champion of the Bravo cooking competition Wednesday. She faced off against Brooke Williamson, the 34-year-old co-executive chef of Los Angeles restaurants Hudson House and The Tripel.
Kish won her spot on the finale after being eliminated from the competition and besting five previously eliminated contestants on the companion web series "Last Chance Kitchen."
In the finale, Kish and Williamson prepared a five-course meal on the fly as the show's judges and a crowd of diners watched.
Kish's winning menu consisted of chicken liver mousse, citrus and lavender cured scallop, bone marrow, and red snapper. She wins the show's $125,000 grand prize.
