After graduating from the International Culinary Center in New York City, Kara sought opportunities to further develop her own creativity in the kitchen.

It was through joining the Culinary Team at Pocono ProFoods and administering chef demos for area restaurants where Kara developed and refined her culinary techniques, under the tutelage of Doug Petruzzi, CEC AAC.

This, combined with a love of entertaining and travel, has allowed Kara to share her experiences with others through food.
