Domenica Catelli, Author of Mom-a-licious, Catelli's Restaurant
Catelli was a regular on Houston's FOX-TV Morning News, where she taught easy, healthy recipes. Growing up in a restaurant family in the Sonoma County wine country provided Catelli with the foundation for her love of fresh, seasonal cooking. She has been cooking professionally for eighteen years, serving as Executive Chef for Raven's restaurant in Mendocino, CA and behind the scenes at the Food Network. She has also worked on Oprah and the Today Show with celebrity chefs including Jamie Oliver, Tyler Florence and Rachel Ray. Catelli collaborated with Art Smith (Oprah's personal chef) on his cookbook, "Back to the Table." Her cookbook, Mom-a-licious was huge hit last year and Domenica is a big draw when she give kids classes as special fundraising events for RFS.
Recently, Catelli is back in California running the family restaurant, Catelli's, in Geyserville.
