Kat Schonberg-Hamar’s Bio
Kat Schonberg-Hamar grew up eating wild fish caught by her commercial fisherman father, and fresh vegetables grown by her green thumbed mother. As a teenager, she got curious about the industrial food system and was dismayed by what she found, prompting her to become a vegan. When her mother refused to cook her special meals, she had to learn how to cook. This necessity turned into a passion, and Kat has been cooking healthy meals from whole ingredients ever since. Nowadays she conscientiously eats some animal products, but still enjoys emphasizing fresh produce and whole grains in her diet.
The opportunity to share her love of cooking and eating delicious, healthy, sustainable, and environmentally sound foods is very exciting for Kat. She hopes to attend culinary school soon. When she’s not at Central Kitchen, she can be found taking on fun cooking projects at home, assisting with cooking classes, and working out with her husband. In the summer she works on a fishing boat in Alaska and eats as much wild seafood as possible.
