Chef K

Chef K began discovering her passion for food while growing up in a village outside of Torino, Italy with her mother. She spent a lot of time in the kitchens learning from the mommas and the grandmas of local Italian friends. Amazed by the amount of passion the Italians put into all of their dishes and preparing every meal with only the freshest of ingredients, Chef K decided this was her calling. Upon returning to the United States to go to College, Chef K continued to study different cuisine. Starting as a prep cook at a gourmet camp-style resort in West Virginia, she worked her way to Executive Chef. In 2004 she moved to Williamsburg, Virginia where she started her own catering company “Classic Catering” which continues to operate today. After talking with many customers and friends over the years she realized the overall desire to eat healthier, however the biggest complaint was “low fat just doesn’t taste as good, where is the flavor?” so she created “Phat Taste Little Fat” where you can enjoy some of your favorite recipes with all that wonderful flavor and only a quarter of the fat.
Chef K will be signing copies of her cookbook on Sunday, April 19th.
