Gourmet dinners by Chef Katie

Chef Katie Van Dyke's unique and creative menus are designed to feature the most fresh and seasonal ingredients. Each event will feature an innovative five-course tasting menu expertly paired with five hand-selected wines.

Chef Katie is a 2012 graduate of the Iowa Culinary Institute® at DMACC​ and worked as a chef in the Des Moines area before moving to California in 2016 to expand her knowledge and learn as much as possible by working for a two-star Michelin Chef in the Napa Valley. In 2019, Chef Katie moved back to Iowa to start her own business, and she is excited to share her passion with current ici® students and community members.
