Chef Catherine Proper has been a lifelong member of the Research Chefs Association after joining during her college years. After serving on several volunteer leadership committees while also progressing her career, Chef Catherine has a deep understanding of the legacy of the organization and a keen eye on the future.

She joined us in this final Culinologist-focused podcast to share how Puerto Rico was chosen as the locale to celebrate our organization’s 20th anniversary and what she’s looking forward to at the event.

Conference is March 14-17, 2017.

Kimberly will be recording some interviews there, so if you’re interested in being a guest on the show, just send us an email at

If you have gained value from the podcast, would you consider personally sponsoring or inquiring of whether your organization would contribute? Just $10 per month from a  few sponsors would keep the show going. You can specify if you want to support the podcasting effort in general or support a specific series – PeasOnMoss or The Culinologist.

We’ll be back with Season 2 of the PeasOnMoss podcast shortly with more interviews and a deeper dive into the mis en place that makes food business entrepreneurs successful and launches products in development. That is, after all, why the blog and podcast are called PeasOnMoss.

PeasOnMoss, because mis en place made me sound like I had it all together.
