These Mothers can Cook!

And we’ll make sure everyone has fun along the way. With our selection of intriguing menus created with the freshest, seasonal ingredients from local farmers, you know our food is going to be amazing. But successful catering is more than that! It’s our commitment to you, our community and the environment that make us unique. Our personalized service will ensure your event is exactly the way you want it – from start to finish. We’re here for you!

Bring it on!
Our menus are inspired by flavors from the Pacific Northwest, and include options for meat-lovers, seafood enthusiasts, vegetarians and all special diets (gluten-free, vegan, …) Whether you’re serving a buffet dinner, a sit-down meal, breakfast or an appetizer spread, we have menus that will satisfy native Seattle-ites as well as out-of-town guests. Our in-house baker creates beautifully decadent desserts to finish any meal with style.

Madres Kitchen is committed to catering with integrity. That means we hold our business practices to the highest standards in sustainability. We buy locally sourced ingredients from local businesses and farmers. We purchase carbon offsets for our delivery vehicle. We use everything we can from what we purchase and compost or recycle what remains. Our commitment is evident in our range of stylish, reusable serving platters and utensils. If it has to be disposable we use only compostable serving accompaniments. Madres supports other local businesses by offering a discount to local non-profits.

Years of experience
Madres Kitchen is the combined concept of well-traveled owners Kristen Cole and Heather Chitty. Kristen’s experience comes from more than 15 years in the restaurant and catering industry, including local stints at Carmelita and The Rose Club, and professional training as a graduate of the Seattle Culinary Academy. Kristen’s time spent living and traveling in South America have helped shape Madres’ menus with bold flavors and emphasis on local, seasonal ingredients. Heather brings with her years on the business side of catering. A pro-multi-tasker, she’ll make sure every detail is in order – and do it with a smile.
