Katina Johnson is the owner of Food For Thought Specialized Catering and Events. She started her business in St. Louis, Missouri, 2016; recently relocating to the Memphis area. Johnson said although she has been in the culinary business for three years along with a decade of experience as a sous chef and catering coordinator, this event still played a pivotal role in showcasing her talents. “I’ve always wanted to do a tasting,” Johnson said.
“You can do 1,000 weddings and the majority of the weddings might be the same because of the menu traditional stuff but a tasting helps you do creativity and show your talent,”– Katina Johnson
