all about foodink


sydney born kate spent a year at culinary college learning french & asian techniques before moving on in the world of food.  in 1987 she donned a backpack, took some national geographics as her guide & started eating her way around the world. after two years she finally got the dream job – getting paid to travel and cook.  she spent the next 15 years cooking for a variety of bands & their support crews learning how to make the most of the local & seasonal produce, eating out with her local helpers in each city, and putting to use french, german & spanish at local artisan markets around the globe. kate moved to los angeles in 1992, and opened foodink catering as a boutique concept for creating food driven by each client’s tastes but backed by a seasoned palate for innovation & unique event styling her motto: start fresh – cook with love – eat all in moderation
