Moving on to the challenge of owning her own restaurant, “Caracolito”, Seattle’s first Spanish tapas bar was born. Here Corinne gained extensive experience in both front and back of the house restaurant operations, and gained an impressive catering client base. It was here that Corinne decided that catering and cooking classes were her passion. Corinne has been the Culinary Curriculum Director for Sur La Table’s numerous cooking school programs across the country (42 cooking schools), and opened her own UnWined Cooking School in Phoenix, Arizona.
With over 30 years experience in the industry, Corinne has served many of Seattle’s finest families and corporations using the finest and freshest ingredients available in the Pacific Northwest.
Since her humble catering beginnings in 1991, she and her team have kept their sense of humor, entrepreneurial spirit and love of high-quality ingredients and thoughtful menus. She prides herself on drawing inspiration from countries, cultures and cuisines around the globe and painting the plate with culinary passion.
