Join us at Community Kitchen for our next collaborative dinner on March 28th with Kate Romane. Kate brings a rustic, authentic flair to Pittsburgh’s thriving food scene. Using fresh, local ingredients to create dishes reminiscent of family dinners of yesteryear, Kate embraces whole foods and the simplicity of their flavors. Coming to Pittsburgh at age 18, this was supposed to be short stop on her way to California – but Pittsburgh wouldn’t let Kate Romane go. Working in Pittsburgh’s Strip District introduced Kate to the city’s people and restaurants, and she knew she could make a strong impact on Pittsburgh’s food tradition.

-Chef Kate Romane
