Chef Kimberley (Owner/Head Chef)
My passion for all things food started when I was young. Our weekends often meant going to Seattle’s Pike Place Market, gardening, helping my dad grill steaks and smoke fish he had caught, watching my Noni make fresh egg noodles by hand. All of these memories have led me to where I am today.
Changing careers for me was a leap of faith. In 1999 I graduated from the Seattle Culinary Institute, earning the Outstanding Culinarian Award. I was off and running in the world of restaurants, culinary competitions, catering, corporate dining and being a private chef, but from the beginning, my dream and goal was to run my own business, show my own vision, perform to my own standards.
After many years of working towards this goal, The Seasonal Palate has evolved to be that vision. Artful, Simple, Clean is how I choose to present myself, my business, and my craft.
At my side is Chef Alan Molina, who has sixteen years’ experience in professional kitchens. Alan and I have worked together for many years and share the same vision for outstanding cuisine and exceptional service.

“I have become Kim’s biggest fan. I can’t say enough good things about both the quality of her meals and the service at her restaurant. I frequent her restaurant and my firm also utilizes her catering services. If you want a great dining or catering experience, call Kim.
While every meal I’ve had is wonderful, my favorite is the hot roasted turkey sandwich with one of Kim’s excellent pasta salads. To finish it off I recommend the “center cut” brownie. Just ask for it and you’ll know what I mean.”
