Delicious food. always different.


Katiushka Melo is an artist, spice collector and  founder/ chef of In The Mood For, a food service that inhabits other spaces converting kitchens into a temporary home where food, spices and flavors are converted into beautiful dishes expected to tantalize your palate.

Katiushka is a performance and video artist that is compelled to collaborate and enter communities through the tradition of food. 

Spice collecting is present in every dish evoking memories of lands that never physically meet, from the far ends of Chile's Fire Island to the numbing peppers of Sichuan, China, all come together to meet in one meal.     

All food is always locally sourced and sustainably grown.
