Who am I? I am the owner of Katalina's, The Little Cafe with Lots of Local Goodness. After a career as a creative marketer, I fulfilled a lifelong dream and opened a restaurant that has become more of a success than I could have ever hoped for. Learn more about it at Katalinascafe.com.
I have been cooking since I was 9. The first thing I remember cooking was Julia Child's Eggs Benedict. When I was 21, I cooked for a tiny restaurant in Morzine, France, and then went on to work as an assistant and cook for a Countess in Paris, France. I also prepared and cooked meals in Lyon, France, for her mother-in-law, a Marquise, and their extended family in their summer chateau. It was there I fell in love with food and wine and knew I wanted to make my life about cooking.
