Kristen Kish, the 2012 winner of Top Chef and only the second female in the show’s history to win the title, has come out, revealing in a New York Times profile that she is in a relationship with another woman.

Kish’s partner is Jacqueline Westbrook, who is the assistant to the Food & Wine editor in chief, Dana Cowin.
