    Professional Chef
    My name is Katherene, Katie for short.

    I have been in this profession for 34 years and have had an adventure all around food. Iam a Garde Manger Chef/Food and Beverage Stylist/Food Artist, Scuba Diver, Survivalist, Artist and part time mad food scientist..lol... Know nutrition and bio Farming,and  permaculture.... love to garden, and pretty good at it, in the desert! Yes we can grow things here other than tumble weeds! I have done some unusual food presentations and demos. I've opened up 5 major hotels, including the worlds largest hotel in my life , which was many moons ago,now there are several... I have been in Las Vegas most of my life and have seen many changes and a true evolution of dining, food quality and creative mindfulness in all aspects of food service. I feel quite fortunate to have been a part of forming lasting bonds from all the people who I have taught from school to kitchen... and  I am grateful for the respect I have earned, doing what I love best.... Creating and cooking... life is good!

    True Foods is what Iam currently exploring, and looking for those who know about this movement.

    Warm Regards, Katie

    Aloha Katie, Welcome to Chef Talk, so glad you’re here.

    34 years in the biz, man where you 5 years old when you started?  FANTASTIC!  You sound a lot more than busy, and in VEGAS BABY!  Love it there.

    Take a look around and if you have any questions in regards to the site, please PM a Mod or and Admin person. 

    I hope that you’ve already checked out the Chefs Garden Forum, and the general forums, were a lot of us Home Experts hang out. 

    I look forward to seeing some of your work in the Galleries.

    Once again Katie, Welcome.
