About Us

Here is a little bit about our Chef of the House owners!

For love and for food!

Chef of the House is a kitchen studio that will offer hands on cooking classes, kids camps, parties, events and corporate team building activities. We will also offer seasonal dinners and a chef made to-go items in the very near future.

Kathleen Roussel and her husband Tate met in culinary school. The couple has been cooking and teaching cooking classes for the past decade. They have always dreamed of opening a space dedicated to food and sharing their love of cooking with others.
