About Us

Since graduating with her culinary degree from Kendall College in 2010, Kathryn Nicholas has experience working in a wide range of culinary settings, including starting her own catering company in Wisconsin. She is passionate about healthy living and cooking, extremely organized and reliable and very accommodating and friendly with customers and clients. Kathryn has enjoyed working as a Prep Dish Chef since early 2016.

Chef Allison Stevens Schaaf is a food, nutrition & culinary expert and founder of Prep Dish & Prep Dish: Personal Chef. She has been cooking for personal chef clients in Austin, TX since 2009.

Allison’s background in the culinary arts includes work at premier health spas, including Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires and Champneys in Tring, England. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Culinary Nutrition from Johnson & Wales University and continuously jumps at the chance to expand her culinary skills: whether hands-on cooking lessons during a trip to Italy or exchanging favorite recipes with friends and colleagues.


Her real passion is her work as a personal chef, helping clients achieve their health goals through diet without sacrificing texture or taste.
