Katelyn Reading, Professional Chef, Culinary Manager, Blog Contributor
Hi, my name is Katelyn Reading. I am a professional chef working with Kids Kitchen and Chefs Club. In 2013, I graduated from The Art Institute of Houston with a Bachelors of Science in Culinary Management. After holding several positions within the industry, I discovered that educating individuals on how to prepare well-balanced meals for themselves is where my true passion lies. I moved to Austin in May of 2014 and quickly became involved with the local community as a personal chef, caterer, and meal planner. Teaching children how to cook and eat nutritiously has always been a dream of mine and with Kids Kitchen, that dream became a reality! Getting children involved in the cooking process is a great way to raise awareness and encourage a lifetime of healthy eating habits. Nourish their bodies, feed their minds! It is an honor to be able to share my love for cooking and eating with the youth of today and the future of tomorrow!
When I am not cooking, I love to spend my free time with family and friends, hiking, swimming, kayaking, camping, reading, meditating, volunteering, doing yoga, checking out new bands, trying new restaurants, and of course, traveling as much as I can! I am really looking forward to sharing our class activities and recipes with you.
Stay tuned, we have a lot of fun in store!
