Barbara McKnight, Culinaire Houston

Classically trained in Culinary Arts in Germany and Switzerland, Chef Barbara McKnight brings her global palate and ideas to Houston's catering industry. In 2000, McKnight established Catering by Culinaire, now known simply as Culinaire Houston, in order to provide personalized attention to Houston's upscale catering needs. Dedicated to exquisite culinary presentation, the company offers imaginative catering menus, logistical support, original cutting-edge event planning and production for a discerning clientele.

Barbara volunteers at our Briscoe Elementary program and loves to connect kids with the food growing in their garden.  She has generously hosted fundraisers at her beautifully restored Hofeinz House in neartown Houston and joined us at The White House in June 2010 for the kick-off of Chefs Move to Schools.
