Get to know me better

My love of different cultures influences my cooking! Mi amor por las differente culturas influye en mi estilo de cocina!

I have spent over 10 years in Barcelona working along aside Roger Auberts, who was an apprentice to Ferran Adría, and who has an award winning catering company. I left him after a couple of years and opened my own catering company and gourmet sandwich café. I work with celebrity clients in L.A and have just recently returned to Barcelona.

I have a strong passion for local, fresh and seasonal ingredients, coupled with the ability to present food with unique design and imagination. I shop, order and acquire food, supplies including any necessary equipment for the kitchen and cook for healthy lifestyle and family friendly meals. Ensures that all plates or pans served are aesthetically appealing. My experience includes successfully conceptualizing and developing innovative menus to optimize guest satisfaction and retention while overseeing comprehensive kitchen operations, inventory control, and financial management.

4.8/ 5

Kathleen was wonderful! She made us a delicious Mediterranean meal and brought two bottles of wine to pair it with. I requested a surprise dessert for my boyfriend and she went out of her way to accommodate!

OMG! Incredible. I booked Kathleen to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and I coundn't of asked for a better night. I set everything up on my building's rooftop and she was so kind to bring all the food all the way up there. Everything was beyond delicious and plenty!! (I didn't know you could make food so good in my kitchen!!) I really felt like I was in a 5 star restaurant. Highly recommend
