Family Picture

About Us

What do you call a chef, two artists, a teacher, a rodeo rider, a fisherman, a farmer and a home health guru? Chef Katie Collier calls it family. While living with her family and learning to cook in Italy, finding local ingredients in local markets as the Italians do she realized there was no ingredient more important to Italian cuisine than family.

This inspiration led Chef Katie to success with Katie's Pizza and Pasta Osteria in St. Louis, MO. With Vero Meal Kits, Chef Katie wants to deliver that same market fresh experience to your door. Create shared memories with your family and friends using authentic ingredients to make inventive traditional meals.
