About the Chef

Brittany Baldwin has been a professional chef for more than 20 years.

Since founding her business in 2005, she has been nationally recognized by Williams-Sonoma, Fortune and The New York Times for her signature farm-to-table cuisine, sustainability practices and innovative business model.

Brittany trained in fine dining restaurants for a decade before graduating from Le Cordon Blue Culinary Academy with honors in 2004.

She lives on a small farm on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon and when not sowing, tending or harvesting, likes to travel extensively around the globe for culinary research.

FROM THE FARM TO YOUR TABLE

My work starts and ends with the quality and freshness of my ingredients.

The slide show shows some of my own organically grown ingredients and how I use them in my dishes.

When I’m not working to make your evening special you’ll find me cultivating my own organic seasonal crops and tending to chickens. It’s my way of connecting what I do back to the ingredients I use. 

My experience growing my own ingredients means that I know how to select only the finest, freshest, organic, seasonal ingredients from the best suppliers.

Only the best will do.

Kind Words

Chef Brittany has prepared beautiful, memorable food for some of the most important events of my life–from catering my baby shower to preparing the first meals I ate as a new mother. I loved having a fine chef in my home who brought a wealth of expertise, ideas, and dietary knowledge with no pretense. Brittany is an impeccable chef and human being who brings integrity, brilliance, and kindness to every meal she prepares.

SAGE

My husband and I invited two other couples to a dinner party catered by Chef Brittany in our home. She made choosing a menu, date and time an easy and trouble-free process which extended into the dinner itself. Brittany did it all from prepping the food, cooking, serving and cleaning up at the end of the evening. We and our friends simply sat back and enjoyed a deliciously prepared dining experience that satisfied all of our expectations. The food was delicious, the service excellent, but the coolest part was the warm and lively interaction with Brittany herself. All six of us wholeheartedly recommend.

STEVE

My mom had recently passed away, and I wanted to do a memorial dinner for her with my family from England and from here in the States. Brittany was wonderful from the get go. We planned a great menu that I knew everyone would enjoy. The meal was beautifully paced and all the food was fantastic. The whole family loved it all and had nothing but raves. All the cleanup was done too, my kitchen was left spotless. It is invaluable to me that I got to have this meal and just relax and spend time with my family. I recommend 100%.

LINDA

My college friends still remember the dinner Brittany prepared for the ten of us. While we spend the afternoon reminiscing, she was quietly in the kitchen preparing a delicious meal featuring her own farm vegetables and local specialties for all these out-of-towners. With no fanfare and working alone she served the multi-course meal, then left the kitchen immaculate and quietly departed. We gave her a standing ovation before she left.

MARY

We had a fantastic experience! We enjoyed putting together the menu and loved the expert service the entire night. We felt fancy and we were able to enjoy our company while having everything taken care of. She is extremely professional all around; food, presentation, explanation, serving and cleaning. We can’t wait to plan our next event with her soon!

BRIANNA

My husband hired Brittany to cater a birthday party that we hosted at our home. She was beyond amazing! Everything was both incredible and  delicious. Her skills are amazing !
I would tell you what I loved the best, but I couldn’t possibly narrow it down. We all  had such a lovely night and she was  a very large part of making that way. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. On top of the most delicious meal, at the end of the night we walked into our kitchen to find it totally immaculate.

GIGI

Brittany has a way, of coming into your home with grace, incredible skills, and an attractive flair!  And yet, remains calm and focused, in her thoughtful way. Her personality is a joy, and we have come to know we can count on her, to always deliver beyond our expectations! The beauty and meaning, of being able to just hang out and visit with friends or family, without having to fuss with the cooking and prep, is such a gift!
We look forward to having Brittany return to our home often, in the future!
