HRN Hall of Fame: Cheetie Kumar
Nominated by: Speaking Broadly
Chef and rock star Cheetie Kumar embraces duality in every area of her life. Immigrant/American, musician/chef, partner/wife—Cheetie is all these and more. In one Raleigh, NC project, she and her husband, Paul Siler fuse music and food: they run a restaurant, Garland, a music venue, Kings, and a downstairs bar, Neptune’s. With Cheetie, the contrast and connection between different parts of herself have resulted in an extraordinary contribution to our culinary world.
