Catherine A.

A humble home cook with and a simple passion and love for healthy, organic, food that doesn't compromise on taste or health.

I simply can't help cooking, It's in my blood
I was born and grew up in Sydney, Australia but my mum is Italian and she's an amazing cook, so I learned from her. I've always experimented and when I was growing up and would cook for anyone willing to try my dishes.
I love healthy, organic produce and I love to create dishes by experimenting and putting different flavours together.
Cooking is like therapy for me, you can do whatever you like with food, it's so creative. plus it's so satisfying to see people savouring your creations.

My cooking staples : Good quality salt, garlic, onion and olive oil.
Favorite Herb: Fresh thyme
Favourite dish: (So hard to choose) but my mum’s frittata made from leftover pasta with a simple salad, that's up there.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Food was excellent, I just wish there was one more dish, for me that was a perfect lunch, for a special dinner I would have enjoyed one more substantial dish. Fish would be perfect, understanding that it was vegetarian meal, one more dish of cooked vegetables would be great, just a little bit more variety. Saying that the dinner was delightful. Also the chefs were an excellent company and a wonderful addition to the whole experience. Thank you.

We enjoyed the lovely vegetarian dishes and the private chef experience.
The dishes were all fresh, tasty and colourful, and the chef and her assistant were very friendly and well-presented.

Thank you Catherine for the amazing dinner!

Beautifully presented gorgeous food! It was wholesome, comforting and really nourishing and left me completely content, not bloating. Catherine arrived with her sister Emma, with bags of organic ingredients and an array of vibrant mixtures glowing with health, her special sauces that completed her recipes. I think one of my most exciting moments was her non-dairy "parmesan" sprinkled on the pizza. I think they may be better than the real thing! Really creative. And the chocolate bars were divine... prettily adorned with fruit and nuts, light, chewy, crunchy... a perfect dinner desert.
I'm not a vegetarian but this menu was fulfilling non-the-less. I felt the care and thought that went into creating the recipes and the love she folded in whilst preparing. All in all, an amazing experience!
One last comment as a co-host to this dinner party; Catherine arrived well prepared and right on time, she was more than happy to accommodate our dinner being pushed late (one guest arrived an hour late), and she left the kitchen looking just like it had when she arrived. Also, Catherine and Emma were really lovely to talk to- a great bonus!

Very friendly and pleasant chef. She could create nice and happy party atmosphere.
Food she prepared were vegetarian meals. Healthy but well presented.
Perhaps, if you need a little more, you need to talk about with her before your party.
Over all I was happy with her and her food.
Thank you very much.

Catherine managed the last minute changes very skilfully. Number of guests changed, one turned out to be a vegetarian with specific requirements and another one brought his kosher food. Fds

Catherine was a pleasure to deal with, her food was exquisite both to look at and to eat and she and her helper were consummate professionals, my daughter had a truly memorable 21st and we would definitely use Catherine again. I will not hesitate to recommend eho chef to all my friends.
