Kathleen has fond childhood memories of being in the kitchen and learning the secrets to traditional Mediterranean dishes passed down from her Situ, who immigrated to America from Lebanon. From a young age, Kathleen was instilled with a love of cooking comforting yet flavorful food. She has been sharing this passion with the Fredericksburg and Stafford community for over 19 years. Kathleen’s service began in the late 90’s when she volunteered to run summer league and year round swim team concession stands. This family run operation slowly evolved from concessions to catering. In 2010, Kathleen opened Kiki’s Lunchbox, her food business that runs the snack bar at the Massad Family YMCA waterpark. For almost a decade, waterpark guests have been seeing the smiling faces of either Kathleen, her husband, or one of her three children working at the snack bar. After nearly 20 years of serving the community, this food loving family is hitting the road! The Zesty Adventurer is the new home of Kathleen’s inspired dishes that include classic Mediterranean combinations, a wide range of world flavors, and seasonally inspired creations. Our goal is to bring our love for bold flavorful food right to you!
