Kate started cooking as an outlet for the stresses of corporate life. After years of practice in her own kitchen, Kate decided to attend culinary school in 2010. She thrived in school becoming a stand out student in her class. In just two short years she completed her culinary education right here in Chesterland, Ohio at ICASI. She believes that cooking should be relaxing and fun; and brings that feeling to all of her classes! She is an avid gardener and loves to cook with local, seasonal ingredients. Chef Kate is the Student Services Director, Private Event Coordinator as well as one of the instructors at ICASI and LPSC.
