Guests will be presented with the menu and recipes at the beginning. An amuse-bouche and a glass of sparkling wine will be served. Dinner will then be prepared with instructions from Chef Kitty and served to participants. Questions answered during class.
The Art of Presentation – We eat not only with our taste buds and noses but also with our eyes. Do you want your food to look as good as it tastes and smells? Simple touches and a little care can make all the difference. Learn how to plate individually or on platters. Your buffet presentation should be as beautiful as your plated meals. Come learn how to present your food beautifully and earn all those “wows” at the table.

CHEF KITTY PHILIPS
Not only do we host local chefs from many of the best restaurants in the Palm Beaches and Martin County, we also have a our own resident chef who works along side them at every dining event at Kai-Kai Farm. Chef Kitty is not only part of the team, she's like family. And boy can she cook! Don't miss a change to taste some of her fabulous cooking at one of our many farm-to-table dinners this season.
A 9th generation native Floridian, Kitty grew up in North Florida near Tallahassee. From a large family in a very rural community, she learned to cook at her grandmother’s side from an early age. Cooking has been a joy throughout her life. After working for many years as a programmer and analyst, she started cooking as a professional. Brought along by another chef, she honed her skills in the kitchen and now is a private chef. She has taken cooking classes in Spain and Italy. She leans toward classic French cuisine but puts a Southern edge to her dishes. She makes her own condiments along with a line of rubs, spice blends, and flavored oils and vinegars. She enjoys making jams, jellies, and marmalades. She is married with 1 daughter and 2 granddaughters. She and her husband have been in Palm Beach County for 15 years.
