The first signs of spring are finally here, and we’re breathing a sigh of relief at our store in Wayland, MA. Spring means the end of snow, cold, and the gloomy pall that can overtake the winter months. Finally, we can put away our boots and scarves and get a much needed dose of sunlight. Spring also means the arrival of Easter and Passover, two holidays we get excited about at Whole Foods Market. We also start setting up our grilling and gardening displays for all of the early birds that want to get a jump on burgers and bulbs.

"Do you watch Rachael Ray?" a woman asked me, looking desperate. I replied that yes, I was familiar with her cooking. "Oh good!" she replied, "she has this thing that she calls 'stoup' - do you have any idea how I would make that?" I certainly did. (Stoup, by the way, is a cross between a soup and a stew, and a term that has surely been trademarked by Ms. RR.)

Three years ago, at a crossroads in her career, Kate Demase asked herself an important question: what am I passionate about? The answer was food! After a brief stint in the advertising industry, Kate earned her MBA, accepted a job with Whole Foods, and two years later became the Store Team Leader of the Prospect Street Store in Cambridge, MA. Kate is currently the Store Team Leader of the Wayland store in Massachusetts, where she is lucky enough to combine her love of food with her passion for helping our team members achieve happiness and excellence. Raised with a proud Italian heritage that has had her cooking since she could reach the counter and led her to spend 6 months living in Florence, Italy, Kate is a compulsive food, book, and shoe shopper. Kate has an M.B.A. from Boston University and a B.A. in English from Wellesley College.
