This cooking workshop will be taught by Kat Campbell-Houston.

Kat Campbell-Houston created Kutlery as an outlet to document her journey with cooking. Over the years, the blog, and its corresponding Instagram account, have come to include travel and design. Kutlery provides video cooking tutorials, recipes, and travel tips in an informal and conversational manner-while maintaining a tone of natural curiosity for the unexplored and unexpected. Kat believes we eat with our eyes, and has pushed herself to learn and master plating, food photography and culinary design.

Kat has been a farmer’s market regular since a child, often shopping with her parents at Millers Farm or LD Greens in Maryland. Additionally, she supports many local businesses and has featured several on her blog.
