After leaving AOC she went on to work as Sous chef at Frantzén, Stockholm, currently holding 3 Michelin stars and ranked No. 6 in the world – and all before Kate turned the age of 30.
Kate worked in Gordon Ramsay’s development team and is now a private chef in London. She loves being experimental in the kitchen and her precision, dedication and attention to detail in everything she does in paramount in the dishes she creates.
