What is a speech therapist doing testing recipes and developing menus for the meal
preparation business? That's easy...it's lots of fun.
After nearly twenty years working for the Jefferson County Schools as a Speech/Language
Specialist, Holly Tempel decided to pursue her passion for art and creativity. In
1998 she made the leap from career to...well, the unknown, and started culinary
school at the Art Institute of Colorado. The rest is history!
During culinary school, she and a couple other students began catering in-home dinner
parties. That lead to Cachet Catering, a small catering business that she ran until
2004. She developed menus, prepared and served food and handled the development
and management of the business. She catered events for the Denver Center for the
Performing Arts, the Colorado Private School Association, the Morrison Museum of
Natural History, as well as many private parties.
"The meal preparation concept is THE FUTURE, an area where I want to apply my skills
and talents and continue to grow in the food business." - Holly Tempel
