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.
