Madres Kitchen is dedicated to fresh food, sustainability, and sourcing local.

Madres Kitchen is a woman owned and operated catering and events company located in Seattle, WA. Founders Heather Chitty, Kristen Cole, and Marci West started the business over a decade ago in hopes to break out of the nine-to-five grind and pursue a career they were truly passionate about. Fresh food, sustainable practices, sourcing local, and dedication to the community are some of the core values that Madres Kitchen was  built on, and continues to follow today.

We work closely with 21 Acres and the Puget Sound Food Hub to source seasonal and organic produce from local farms, E.C. Wilson to find top quality meat, and other food purveyors such as Ayako and Family JAM, That Brown Girl Cooks Hummus, Macrina Bakery, Beecher's Cheese. We pride ourselves on providing high quality food, while giving back to the local economy.

Aside from our high standard on delivering the best,  we are also very mindful about the impact our company makes on the environment and on the world around us. We are strategic about minimizing food waste, take garbage and recycling very seriously, and use compostable products as much as we can. We are also a certified Green Business by the City of Seattle. 

As Madres Kitchen grows we make it a priority of ours to give back to our community. We donate towards non-profit organizations, sponsor community events, and host pop up dinners where we raise money towards a good cause. We try our best to be as intentional as possible- serving fresh delicious food, providing heartfelt service, all while making a positive impact.

Today Madres Kitchen is at their third commercial kitchen located in Lower Queen Anne, employs 10 full time employees, and 50+ event staff. We are an equal opportunity employer, and offer competitive wages and benefits. To learn more about us please click the link below.

OUR MISSION

At Madres Kitchen we take being green and sustainable to a whole new level. Here's how we make being green a way of life.

Farm-to-table

We work directly with Seattle Tilth and the Food Hub at 21 Acres for farm fresh produce. These relationships allow us to provide you with a wide range of seasonal fruits and veggies from Bow Hill Blueberries, 21 Acres Farm, Maltby Produce Markets/Marshland Orchards, Ralph's Greenhouse, Osprey Hill Farm, Seattle Tilth Farm Works and more. By staying away from the large produce companies and distributors, we not only give more to local farms, but also get to know the farmers personally.

Not only does this ensure that the food you get is the best quality, ripe when picked and sourced within an hour of our commercial kitchen in Seattle, but also means that we are supporting farmers and producers who work and live in our community.

Made In House

Do you love the amazing, flavorful cashew-lemon sauce on our pasta and the fresh, zesty dressing on our salads? Yep, we made it. The chimichurri on your flank steak and the pear chutney on your risotto cake? We made that too! From fresh baked, organic scones at your breakfast meeting to the variety of salsas in our taco bar! All made in house and from scratch!

Committed to Compost

Our kitchen is always stocked with bins to separate compost from recycling from landfill waste. We take time to consider where our trim ends up, and are happy to supply compost bags and bins at your event. Going the disposable route? Sometimes the event you are hosting is more smoothly run with to-go packaging or service ware. Our to-go flatware, plates, napkins, cold cups.... are all compostable. We wouldn't have it any other way!

REVIEWS

"Madres staff was excellent & did a good job troubleshooting some random issues on the fly.  
The service was great and the food was awesome.  We're super happy with the service we got and we'd chose Madres all over again." - Jacqui G.

"The food was delicious! We got so many compliments. The staff were soooo helpful during the reception... we had to change a lot of our plans last minute because it was pouring rain, and they were phenomenal at adapting quickly to the situation. I would definitely recommend Madres Kitchen and part of me wishes I could think up another event just to get them to cook for me again!" - Sara G.
