It is clear that Katrina is passionate about cooking and teaching people how to use ingredients without waste. I can't recommend The Empowered Kitchen enough!" -Adrienne F.

  • "This was an unbelievable experience, she was very thorough and it was so easy to follow her directions. We all really enjoyed the meal, thank you!!! I highly recommend calling her and utilizing her services." - Mollie S.


  • "Sustainable, educational, fun and delicious! Katrina takes care in her work in every aspect of the kitchen from prep to cooking to clean up and teaches you ways to do it all!" - Jolene C.


  • "After I had my first class with Katrina I felt more comfortable to try and prepare different dishes. Her style is approachable and patient. With only one class I know so much more than I did when I started. She taught me simple techniques that will last a lifetime." - Cesar C.

"Katrina came to my home to teach my husband and I. We are expecting our first child in 6 weeks, so it is important to us to maximize not only nutrition, but also our efficiency and variety in our weekly menu. Otherwise, we are prone to Taco Bell syndrome - not a habit we want to pass on to our little one. My husband is somewhat experienced in the kitchen, I am more so. Katrina is great at tailoring her lesson to your tastes, individual cooking experience, and equipment you may or may not have.

She brought an entirely new flavor palette + time/dollar efficient cooking methods to our home. You're not just paying for one night - these are long-lasting skills backed up by follow up she'll do with you, so I'm expecting to factor these skills into our regular cooking rotation for life.

She gave us a fun, friendly, hands-on experience that's a game-changer for us! Fully recommend." - Laura and Scott J.
