Kimberly Putman, Owner and Chef

kim chefInspired Culinary is the product of my fifteen-year plus background in the food service and fitness industry. Our team of the best personal chefs provides Austinites with a unique and healthy approach to fine dining and eases the burdens of balancing work, personal/family-life and daily activities.

I was raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, the often self proclaimed culinary capital of the nation. Living there provided me with extensive experience and knowledge of world-class cuisine. I am both a certified wellness professional through the Cooper Institute and am certified by the Texas Department of Health in food handling, sanitation and manufacturing.

My passion for cooking and food started at a very young age. My entire family (like most) loves food – of all kinds – and always encouraged my curiosity and adventurous spirit in the kitchen. As a fairly new mother – I can only hope that my son develops the same love affair with food that I have!

Experience working with catering companies and culinary specialists as well as my personal commitment to fitness led me to create healthy menus that retain the wonderful flavors of my childhood. I am primarily a vegetarian, and I find real INSPIRATION using vegetables, grains and legumes in new and interesting ways.

As the business owner, I encourage our entire team of chefs to cook with passion and from the INSPIRATION that really moves them. Each chef hired by Inspired Culinary has the unique ability to both cook with great talent and work professionally inside private homes.

We excel in cooking for those with dietary restrictions and specialize in providing high quality exciting foods for individuals with discerning palettes.
