In 2011, Kathryn launched Get Cooking from her home kitchen. Her goal was to create a low pressure, encouraging environment where her customers would learn, cook, eat, and socialize. After three years teaching in her home kitchen, she relocated the business to its current commercial location on the MacEwan University Campus, downtown.
A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu London and of Leiths School of Food & Wine, Kathryn has spent her life travelling, and has lived in England, Scandinavia, the United States, Ontario and now Alberta. Her love of cooking and culinary traditions from around the world continue to inspire her travels.
At Get Cooking, Kathryn combines her belief in supporting local producers and suppliers with her commitment to uncomplicated, approachable cooking. With some basic cooking skills and a good local knowledge of where to source the right ingredients, anyone can bring flavours from around the world into their own kitchens.
