KYLE CONNAUGHTON grew up cooking in Los Angeles for such restaurants as Spago Beverly Hills, Kishi, Lucques, AOC, and the Dining Room at The Ritz-Carlton Huntington. He attended The Southern California School of Culinary Arts and two Japanese culinary schools before working for the Japanese outpost of Michel Bras, the three-Michelin-star restaurant based in Laguiole, France, where he spent three years. While in Japan, Kyle also worked in several of the top kitchens of traditional kaiseki, sushi, soba, and izakaya-style dining. He then moved to the U.K. to open The Fat Duck Experimental Kitchen with Heston Blumenthal, as head chef of research and development. Working with food scientists, historic and culinary researchers, perfumers, and sensory scientists, Kyle oversaw for five years the development work for the three-Michelin-star The Fat Duck, which was voted Best Restaurant in the World in 2006 and 2007. In 2010, Kyle returned to the U.S. to work on several development projects, including contributing to the Modernist Cuisine book series. Other projects have included program and curriculum development for The Culinary Institute of America's new culinary science bachelor's degree of professional studies. Kyle is the co-founder of Pilot R+D, a development and culinary science-based consulting firm, and is opening Single Thread: Farm-Restaurant-Inn in summer 2015 in Healdsburg, California. He is currently writing a book on Japanese earthenware to be published by Ten Speed Press in October 2015.
