Katia Lessa


I was born loving food. I love everything about it, from grocery shopping to prepping, to cooking, serving and savoring it with people I love. It excites me and it takes me places. Needless to say I have chosen to be in the food industry. As a caterer and event planner I have the privilege to gift clients with the best and most beautiful foods I can prepare. I call it Comme Il Faut Events and Catering and my motto is: Bringing people together through food “as it should be”. Happy eatings!
