Kinoko Sushi Residency

St. Roch Market welcomes chef Kelseay Dukae for a 3-week residency of Kinoko, a vegan-forward sushi concept. A New Orleans native with varied experience across the country, Kelseay began her culinary journey in high school in sushi restaurants. Over the past fifteen years, she has hosted Cajun pop-ups in New York, catered events in California, participated on Masterchef, ran a sushi bar in the French Quarter in New Orleans as chef-owner, and led the culinary program at the Masters in Augusta, Georgia as head chef. Now, at St. Roch Market, she will offer her plant-based sushi alongside seafood favorites at Kinoko. Translating to “mushroom” in Japanese, Kinoko showcases the versatility and flavor of a wide range of vegetables — especially mushrooms — in eye-catching plates like the Ikigai Roll, featuring teriyaki shiitakes, tempura sweet potato, and charred enoki mushrooms.
