Veteran chef and caterer Katie Schma recently launched a new farm-to-table restaurant, Local Foods Kitchen, located at 4548 Hartwood Drive in Fort Worth’s Tanglewood Village.
The new eatery offers an evolving menu of small-batch meals – including soups, salads, sweets, sandwiches and home-comfort meals – made from local and regional, farm-raised ingredients.
Schma, owner of Star Gourmet Catering, said the menu will change monthly and menu items will include what is available at the moment.
“I am not reinventing or recreating a product,” Schma said. “My goal is to bring gourmet flavor and comfort to you, the fresh and natural way, from my family to yours.”
Schma grew up in Carmel, Calif., and served as the executive chef of City Cafe To Go, which later helped her family found City Café on Lovers Lane in Dallas. Schma moved back to California and opened up Nest Deli and Takeout 12 years ago with her mother.
