Get to know me better
Innovative and unique
I started cooking in restaurants in Seattle, WA in 2007. I take pride in making my customers feel special and fulfilled. My strength in hospitality comes from three things, passion, team and the ability to adapt in a fast paced environment. Personal preferences and the needs of my customers are where I thrive. I believe- if you want it, we can make it happen.
I am a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. Since completing my degree, I have lived in the Napa Valley. I have worked for BottleRock, Pestoni Family winery, Treasury Wine Estates and more. I started my own small catering company, Coga Enterprises which handles both catering, event operation and consulting.
For me, cooking is...
an expression, therapeutic and a chance to create some magic.
I learned to cook at...
A young age through watching my mother, father and grandmother cook.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Ferran Adrià: He taught me to be creative and to leave the confines of the ":rules"
A cooking secret...
" if your not capable of a little magic. Don't bother yourself with cooking."

Chef Caitlin was amazing. Dishes were excellent. I would highly recommend her for any occasion. We had an intimate dinner with just me and my husband and she made it very memorable. Great person, amazing chef!
