“I decided to do this because I’ve been at the farmers market Downtown for five years and I’ve got such a huge following with my small little 22 items,” Katz said. “When this came up, it was kind of like a dream come true because I can make anything I want. Today, we decided to make chicken roulade stuffed with spinach and mushrooms with a lemon sauce over it. At the college, I’d have to make you a turkey sandwich with Swiss cheese. If I made this fancy stuff, they wouldn’t eat it.”
Katz, a self-taught chef featured in publications like Southern Living magazine, tries to buy all of her ingredients locally and the majority of her food is low-fat and vegetarian.
