Restaurantware Interviewer: Explain your food philosophy in 10 or fewer words.

Kath Younger: Eat real food in all the food groups for ideal balance.

Restauarantware Interviewers: What is your most unique attribute as a food professional?

Kath Younger: I blogged every meal I ate for five years. And then I had a baby – ha! I still do a weekly recap of all my meals. Not many people can say they showcased their meals for over 7 years!

Restaurantware Interviewer: Explain the most innovative event you’ve thrown or dish you’ve ever created.

Kath Younger: My trademark is my whipped banana oatmeal, oats made with thinly sliced banana that gets “whipped” into the bowl to sweeten the oats naturally. It’s the base of all the oatmeals I make.

Restaurantware Interviewer: What is the most underrated kitchen product or food item?

Kath Younger: Smoked paprika – I use it in everything!

Restaurantware Interviewer: How do ecofriendly considerations enter your decision making process as a chef or caterer? (i.e. sourcing local food, using ecofriendly products, etc)

Kath Younger: I live in one of the local food capitals of the country, and we have access to so many ingredients. I love to shop our local farmer’s markets on Saturday and support the farmers, cheesemakers and craftsmen with whom I share a community.

Restaurantware Interviewer: Restaurantware is about providing a stylish presentation for food, explain your approach to plating and tablescapes.

Kath Younger: Most of the dishes you see on my blog are real meals that I am about to eat. So the last thing I want to do is spread artistic crumbs all around
