Cross-Country Trip Inspires Opening of Cathy’s Kitchen

Drawing from inspiration gathered during a cross-country trip, the Jenkins family decided to pursue their love of cooking and open a diner-style restaurant in the heart of downtown Ferguson.

Cathy’s Kitchen celebrated its grand opening on Mon., July 8. The eclectic menu is filled with items that Cathy Jenkins, co-owner and chef, perfected during the family’s travels across the country, when she had the opportunity to work side-by-side with expert chefs to learn classic regional recipes and dishes.

The menu features Chicago-style, deep-dish pizza; Italian beef (from a recipe picked up in Chicago); and fish tacos from New Mexico, which are currently the restaurant’s top seller. According to a news release, Jerome Jenkins, Cathy’s husband and co-owner of Cathy’s Kitchen, also highly recommends the Fried Shrimp with Mild Sauce from Chicago, which he says is cooked in corn meal batter and will not taste the same unless it is served in a Chinese take-out box, allowing it to cook just a little bit longer.

The news release also provided the following information: “The restaurant is a new business venture for the Jenkins family, but Jerome and Cathy have owned businesses in St. Louis for decades, beginning with a hand-cut, handmade silk necktie business that opened in 1992, which started with door-to-door sales and eventually moved into St. Louis Center in Downtown St. Louis. Although the necktie business was somewhat short-lived, Jerome and Cathy were undeterred and started a new business by developing a chemical that pre-treats fabric in order to print permanent images on it with inkjet printers. This one-of-a-kind product, called Bubble Jet Set 2000, has gained global recognition from companies such as Disney, Hewlett Packard, Mattel, NASA and more.

“With one successful business under their belt, Jerome and Cathy decided to sit down with their three children and talk about doing something that they would all love, and since Cathy and their two daughters loved to cook, the family began to set their sights on opening a restaurant. They began by getting a manufacturing license so Cathy could distribute her own line of spices and seasonings, then she began catering area school functions and other places in the Ferguson community, and eventually she and Jerome got advice and encouragement from other businesses in the district to learn tricks of the trade when opening a restaurant.”
