Stacey Poon-Kinney

Stacey Poon-Kinney is a finalist on Season 9 of Food Network Star.


Stacey Poon-Kinney, 34 (San Diego), grew up in a food family — her great-grandfather was a chef and her great-grandmother ran a diner. She was chopping, dicing and stirring from an early age, but her love of dance took over and she began performing onstage. She eventually returned to the food world and now, the married mom of two owns the restaurant The Trails Eatery with her father. Don't let Stacey's big smile, unique sense of style and carefree approach to life fool you — she is a competitor.
