About your chef

Chef Caroline Fey began her culinary career when she was 16 years old, making pasta and assorted breads for an Italian restaurant after school.

She went to The French Culinary Institute in New York City, got two degrees from The FCI, a classic culinary degree and a pastry degree, and has worked in restaurants in Manhattan, Ithaca NY, and Park City UT, and for a catering company in East Hampton, NY.

After completing a wine program at The CIA in Napa, she started a little company called Mariposa Kitchen and began working as a private chef and caterer. Mariposa Kitchen became The City Kitchen, with a full website including cooking videos and a food blog.

Chef Caroline’s work has been featured in CA Home + Design Magazine, Food52, and on the CBS morning show.

Chef Caroline will also bring kitchen assistants and servers to assist with your class and dinner.
