With her husband, Giancarlo, she has opened two highly accredited restaurants, one in London and Caldesi in Campagna in Bray.

Katie is the principal of their cookery school, La Cucina Caldesi, where she teaches alongside some of the biggest names in Italian cuisine, including Gennaro Contaldo, Ursula Ferrigno and Valentina Harris. Together Giancarlo and Katie co-authored Italian Mama’s Kitchen and Return to Tuscany, the cookbook that accompanied a BBC2 TV series chronicling the couple’s trip to Tuscany to rediscover Giancarlo’s culinary roots.
