Lynch started her cooking career at the local church rectory and moved quickly up the ranks, moving to Italy to learn from culinary masters, then opened her first restaurant No 9 Park, in downtown Boston in 1998.
Today she runs a group of restaurants, cooking programs and shops that are spread across Boston's South End and South Boston. Her first cookbook, Stir: Mixing it up in the Italian Tradition, was published by Houghton Mifflin Publishers in 2009.
