Sarah Thomas

A former sommelier at acclaimed New York City restaurant Le Bernardin, Sarah Thomas is the co-founder of Kalamata’s Kitchen, a company on a mission to inspire kids to experience the whole world through adventures with food. Sarah’s childhood passion for food and service is what eventually led her to the hospitality industry, and after getting her start in restaurants in Pittsburgh, PA, she obtained the prestigious Advanced Sommelier certification and worked for nearly six years at 3-star Michelin restaurant Le Bernardin in NYC. Through her background as a creator of meaningful experiences through food and beverage, and her storytelling work with Kalamata’s Kitchen, Sarah hopes to create a confident character that other children of color can see themselves in, while also encouraging all kids to look at different foods and cultures with a sense of curiosity and compassion. Sarah has authored two books in the Kalamata’s Kitchen series (published by Penguin Random House), which is also being developed into an animated series for television by Imagine Entertainment, as well as adapted for live events.
