As the popularity of crowdfunding grows, more foodies are turning to the masses to finance their new restaurants, food trucks and wholesale cooking projects.
Former Top Chef contestants Jennifer Biesty and Tim Nugent have turned to Kickstarter to fund their new project: Shakewell Bar and Kitchen — a restaurant that will offer Mediterranean brunch, lunch and dinner with a focus on seasonal and local ingredients.
Chef Jennifer Biesty rocketed to national fame when she was a cheftestant on Season 4 of Top Chef and a Star Chefs Rising Star in 2007. She is currently the Executive Chef of Scala’s Bistro and the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco. Bay Area Bites caught up with Biesty to talk about her favorite food and drink spots.
