As a writer, national blogger and radio show co-host, I love to Dish about what's happening now, in Kansas City and all over the country!
Overland Park, Kan.-based freelance writer and editor Kimberly Winter Stern writes about healthcare, travel, food, lifestyle and design. An adventurer and feline fanatic, she revels in the fast-paced lifestyle of someone in search of words to be written and stories to be told. Though the bipolar atmospheric changes in Kansas are sometimes challenging, Stern admits there is no place like the Heartland as a home base for her love of travel and food. 

Also known as the gregarious and cuisine-informed Kim Dishes to listeners tuning in weekly for her on-the-road segments on “LIVE! From Jasper’s Kitchen,” a popular long-running food show in Kansas City for which she is co-host with KC celebrity Chef Jasper Mirabile, Stern constantly scours the country for culinary and destination jewels, never leaving home without her appetite or her vivid imagination. Prolific in eating, writing and discovering, this foodie satisfies an innate desire to sample the world’s gastronomic rainbow by meeting food artisan trendsetters, gaining insight into the culinary points-of-view of everyone from cheese makers and chocolatiers to brew masters and baristas who set their city’s locavore pace to the farmers and growers who are passionate producers. 

Stern is a sought-after writer with work appearing in diverse national, regional and local magazines including Better Homes and Gardens, 913/KC Star, KANSAS! Magazine, KANSAS Outdoors, KC Magazine, national travel guides, KC Homes & Gardens, Generation Boom, Shawnee Magazine, KC Home Design, Unity, KC Business and Midwest CEO. She is the former managing editor of 435 South magazine where she helped Johnson County's definitive lifestyle publication earn the coveted title of "Best Magazine in Kansas City" in 2011. Stern is a national writer for Dean & DeLuca’s Gourmet Food Blog where she cooks, styles, shoots and writes about food … and loves to lick the bowl clean. The face behind the name of Kim Dishes, a foodie’s dream blog, Stern wrote a popular weekly food column called Dining Bytes for KC Magazine.
