Never one to shy away from trying something new, Kim Weiss shares her love of cooking and her taste for experimentation with us each week in The Creative Kitchen. Weiss was born into a family of cooks. Her father was a gourmet. Her aunts could collectively cook circles around anyone, and her grandmother, she claims, “was the best southern cook God put on the face of this earth.” Weiss began cooking for her family and friends at age 10 and hasn’t stopped. While formally schooled as a lawyer and not as a chef, she applies the same kind of creativity to cooking that she once put into crafting a legal argument. Weiss is also the owner of Vom Fass, a store selling gourmet culinary condiments, fruit vinegars, exquisite oils, selected wines and spirits.
