This morning on Live with Kelly and Ryan, TV show hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest wrap up their virtual tour of major U.S. cities with a segment on Seattle featuring chef Renee Erickson of Sea Creatures, a family of nine restaurants and bars. The show’s virtual city tours have included musicians or other notable figures from each city, and typically a chef who best represents the local culinary scene.
Erickson will be cooking halibut with anchovy butter on the show’s New York film set while chatting with Ripa and Seacrest. The show’s executive producer Michael Gelman emphasized Erickson’s connection to the area with a seafood dish, and also noted the bright nautical themes of her restaurants that are distinctly Seattle. “We like to highlight … a chef prominent in that area and on the cutting edge, but also someone who’s doing something a little differently that resonates with that part of the country.” Watch the show today at KOMO News at 9 a.m.
