Our Chef Kate was featured in the November issue of Enjoy Magazine. Read it here.
Kate Chadwick grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, experiencing the wide variety of cultures and flavors available there. She left in the early 1980’s to work in some wonderful restaurants in Denver, Colorado, before returning to San Francisco to open her own catering company, Katering.
During the late 80’s and early 90’s, she traveled extensively in Europe and Asia and lived for extended periods in Israel and Japan, where her then-husband was doing post-doctoral research as a chemist. While living abroad, Kate took every opportunity to learn everything she could about the regions’ cultures and cuisine.
Upon returning to the U.S. in 1994, she worked as Executive Chef in a popular Flagstaff, Arizona microbrewery. It was there that she got the nickname, “Hurricane.” In 1999, she returned to Northern California and opened an upscale restaurant in the Victorian seaport of Eureka, called Hurricane Kate’s. It was there Kate showcased what she calls “World Table” cuisine, which features the bounty of fresh, local and seasonal ingredients available year-round on the Northwest coast of the United States.
