Ken was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Ken grew up in a family of great cooks which stoked his passion for food. Traveling abroad and cooking professionally in Australia furthered his knowledge and repertoire. After returning to the states, Ken simultaneously went to culinary school and worked at Zuni Cafe under Judy Rogers in San Francisco working through all the ranks of the kitchen to Chef de Cuisine.
With all that experience, Ken moved on to open his own place, Turner’s Kitchen, in the heart of the Mission District of San Francisco not far from the iconic Dolores Park. I met Ken when he first opened, (formerly Clare’s Deli) and have been enjoying all his delicious concoctions ever since. We recorded this podcast on location inside Turner’s Kitchen. From the daily specials, to the “Robin Leach” which includes caviar, my personal favorite the Cubano, Ken is constantly pouring his expertise and inspiration from the local farmer’s market into great food for you. Be sure to listen for great advice at the end and go visit Turner’s Kitchen!
