TikTok's favorite chef, Meredith Hayden —the founder of Wishbone Kitchen — has gained a cult following thanks to her delicious recipes and behind-the-scenes videos of life as a private chef.

However, Meredith is taking her culinary skills off social media and participating in Amex Gold x Resy Present: Dip into Gold, a one-of-a-kind, “sauce-first” dining event that will bring together some of the buzziest NYC Resy restaurants as they reimagine signature dishes.
