Masterchef Winner Chef Kelsey Murphy Opens New Food Concept, Inspo, Inside Fishers Test Kitchen

MasterChef Season 11 winner Kelsey Murphy officially opened her new food concept, Inspo, inside the Fishers Test Kitchen today. 

Inspo will feature food and flavors that have inspired Murphy throughout her culinary journey thus far. The menu consists of small plates such as a lobster roll, Asian sticky wings, avocado toast, and ceviche as well as large plates such as an ancient grain bowl, jambalaya, meatball Bolognese, and lobster mac and cheese. 

“It is hard to contain my excitement around the opening of Inspo at Fishers Test Kitchen,” said Chef Kelsey Murphy. “Mainly because I am going to be able to put smiles on the faces of the community that has supported me on my journey thus far. Inspo is a ‘thank you’ to all of you, and hopefully another large step in Fishers staking claim in the elevated food scene.”

Following the Fishers Test Kitchen model, Chef Murphy will have up to 18 months to test menu items and operations at the restaurant incubator before determining her next steps for Inspo.

The Fishers Test Kitchen hosts culinary entrepreneurs who are launching their restaurant concepts from completely built-out kitchens adjacent to Sun King Brewery in Fishers. These entrepreneurial chefs test out their concepts, refine their menus, and build a following with the hopes of eventually launching out to their own restaurant location to create a more vibrant and exciting local food culture.

Kelsey Murphy specializes in Modern American Cuisine inspired by her background growing up in an Italian and Polish family where food was always a focus and large Sunday dinners were a tradition never to be missed. Through the years, she has continued to teach herself new techniques and experiment with flavors for her family. She resides in Indianapolis with her husband and three children.
