Meet Chef K


Kiersten Firquain or Chef K as she is known, began her culinary career caring for kids in early education. After seeing their love for cooking, she developed a business model and started Bistro Kids Creative Cooking Series.  She annually attends culinary school training at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in the Napa Valley region of St. Helena, California and in 2002 began InHome Bistro Catering Service.

In August 2006 Chef K rolled out Bistro Kids Farm 2 School Lunch Program, an innovative take on serving students healthy school meals. In summer 2011 Treat America, a local family owned Kansas City business, acquired Bistro Kids. Under her guidance Bistro Kids served over 10,000 meals and snacks a day in the KC, St Louis, and Wichita areas.

Today, InHome Bistro’s experience in the farm 2 table industry is paramount. Services include: small event catering, gourmet dinner parties, farm 2 school programs, consulting, nutrition education, and more!
