“Cait’s Kitchen” began in November, 2014 when Cait was comfort baking after an inspiring road trip with her mom that began and ended with Montreal’s finest patisseries. After the house was filled with butter tarts and cookies, her husband, Spencer, joked she should sell her baked goods because he couldn’t possibly eat them all. Cait saw this as a challenge, and started her business right away. What humbly began as a monthly farmer’s market grew into weekly markets, full service catering, and “Cait’s Cafe” on July 31, 2016.
Caitlin started baking at a very young age. Growing up, she spent time in the kitchen watching her European grandmother make everything from crêpes and strudel, to salads made with fresh vegetables picked from her backyard garden in Etobicoke.
Spencer was born and raised in Huntsville, Ontario, and is a Red-Seal Cook. He moved to Toronto in 2001 and spent eight years working in some of the city’s busiest establishments, culminating in his appointment as Chef de Cuisine at Pure Spirits Oyster Bar in the Historic Distillery District. After leading the kitchen at the Benmiller Inn & Spa for six years as Executive Chef, Spencer joined Cait, to offer full-service catering, cooking classes, and private chef services.
