Desiree Espada documents the food world through her lenses and writes this report:
Let me introduce you to Kate Nelson, an energetic and engaging twenty-something year old entrepreneur who is wise beyond her years. Kate is the owner and sole chef of Piecurious, a freelance pie company that caters to Meridian Room and individual clients. Kate is also the Kitchen Manager and designs donuts for the delicious new breakfast fad that is Hypnotic Donuts in east Dallas.
Jump for some amazing pie.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kate over at her mother’s house where she occasionally bakes. Kate learned to cook from her mother Raelene, Grandmother Barbara Jean, her sister Francis, “Aunt Fran,” and Marty Roper (both Kate’s Great Aunts). Kate gives a lot of credit to her great grandmother Thelma Roper for teaching her how to improvise while cooking and use farm fresh ingredients whenever possible.
