Get to know me better
“If your not capable of magic, don’t bother yourself with cooking”
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...
Therapeutic, extension of myself and a way to show great care to the people around you.
I learned to cook at...
I am a Culinary Institute of America alumni. But I learned from my family the true cooking.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Ferran Adrià: he taught me to leave the confines of the rules.
A cooking secret...
Attention to details and treat cooking like a ballet. One motion after the other.

Chef Caitlin's reviews
I am SO happy with take a chef! I have been looking for something like this for years and Caitlin was an absolute dream

Chef Caitlin was incredible! She served us an absolutely delicious and unique dinner that we couldn't believe we had at home. The food was so flavorful, delicious, and interesting, and the food presentation was also really beautiful. Caitlin was also a lovely person, the perfect balance of telling us about the dishes and chatting when we asked her about dishes, etc., and giving us space and privacy to enjoy our evening. She also left our kitchen cleaner than it was when she started! We will absolutely hire Caitlin again and I've already recommended her to friends!
