It all began in Madrid...

Initially started as an outlet to build a stronger community through the act of giving and supporting local charities, Seattle Chef Joe was founded as Not Haute Catering in 2011.

With the Belief that Fresh Ingredients and Elegance should be available to anyone, at anytime, anywhere, Seattle Chef Joe set out on his mission to build a Community one plate, and one household at a time.

In 2014 the seeds of this thought, desire, and concept really started to move forward, and so did Chef Joe’s focus. It shifted from Brick & Mortar Establishments into the Private Residences.

The difference for my Clients lay in the fact that they know everything presented to them is hand selected from local vendors. Every Client is Unique, and it is my intention to embrace that uniqueness, and reflect it in the ingredients I personally select for them.

My drive and passion for this Industry really took hold of me in 1993. Starting as a dishwasher and working my way through all the positions of a kitchen.

I have been very fortunate to share the kitchen with some really awesome people throughout the years.

My quest for learning and always trying to answer the question “what’s next” has led me through the Southwest, Northwest, and Madrid.

It continually drives me to deliver a unique Experience for my clients that they will not find duplicated anywhere else. A blended balance between the perfect ingredients and the highest level of Hospitality brought to your door.
