WE'VE ALL HEARD IT:
"I WAS IN THE KITCHEN ALL DAY TACKLING A MEAL FOR MY GUESTS AND AM EXHAUSTED BEFORE THE PARTY EVEN STARTS."
LUCKY FOR YOU...
the kitchen is my happy place!
SERIOUSLY A 10/10 EXPERIENCE!
Katie prepared a spectacular private dinner for my fiancé and I in our home for our anniversary! It was such an amazing night. We loved every course!! I highly recommend The Gourmet Goddess!
I’m so glad you’ve come to visit! Some call me Katie, but most often clients and friends call me The Goddess or GG. Most recently a dinner guest (and past client) gave me my most favorite name yet, memory maker. I cherish that impression because everything I do as The Gourmet Goddess involves helping you create memories around good food.
I have been preparing delicious gourmet food for my clients and their guests at private, in-home gatherings since 2012.
I LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN SEEING MY CLIENTS GATHER WITH THEIR FAVORITE PEOPLE AND CELEBRATING LIFE’S MOMENTS AROUND A MEAL THAT I HAVE PREPARED.
Whether a formal dinner party, lively cocktail party or afternoon brunch, I’m here to make entertaining an effortless endeavor for you. So often when entertaining at home, you get bogged down in all the details and miss out on actually enjoying your own party. When you work with The Goddess, you once again get to be part of the celebration, a guest in your home making memories with those around you. And eating some pretty fantastic food in the process!
I love my Italian heritage and refer to it often when sharing stories about making the Christmas ravioli or using the roasting pan from my great-grandfather’s restaurant. I was blessed to grow up in a family where it was important to slow down and savor our time together, always with an abundance of incredible food down the middle of the table. The memories made around that table are priceless. The best times of my childhood are connected to my uncle’s arguing over the last ravioli, our annual trip to Brookfield Zoo with the most incredible picnic spread ever and lying on the floor being in excruciating pain every single Christmas from eating entirely too much antipasti.
As I started cooking for clients, I realized that not everyone necessarily had those same experiences. I know how rich my life is because of the deep connection my favorite memories have to the food that was on the table. I wanted to give my clients a taste of the same type of experience because of how important it has been in my life. My service became more than just cooking a meal. Creating memorable moments around the dinner table is what drives my passion for cooking good food and sharing that experience with others.
