Prior to this, Cora opened Cat Cora’s Que situated in South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, California as well Cat Cora’s Kitchen with three locations including San Francisco International Airport, George Bush International Airport and Salt Lake City International Airport which is also home to Cat Cora’s Kitchen Gourmet Market. A fourth Cat Cora’s Kitchen location is slated to open in early 2015 in the Atlanta airport. The acclaimed chef collaborated with Disney to create, Kouzzina by Cat Cora, a Mediterranean restaurant located at Disneyworld Boardwalk in Orlando, Florida.

Cora became the first female chef to be inducted into the American Academy of Chefs® Culinary Hall of Fame in 2012. Following this, Cora partnered with MOZO Shoes to reveal her first signature shoe line in January of 2013.

Cora has two thriving food lines, “Cat Cora’s Kitchen” which features preservative-free all natural products from Greece and healthy Mediterranean breads and spreads. In addition, she also has a merchandise line called “Cat Cora by Starfrit.”

Cora grew up in an intimate Greek community in Jackson, Mississippi, where she developed a passion for the culinary arts while watching her family and relatives infuse Southern spices with Mediterranean delicacies. As a young adult, she left Mississippi for New York to study at the Culinary Institute of America. Cora then continued her culinary education in Europe, completing apprenticeships for two of France’s renowned three-star Michelin chefs.
