Caitlin has always loved food – from anticipating the taste, biting into the first mouthful, to savouring the memory of an exquisite dish. At 6 she discovered the pleasure of cooking – family photographs show her proudly holding her Christmas chocolate log – she now takes over the family kitchen whenever she visits.
Hailing from Scotland, she moved to NZ at 9 years old. For the past two years she has tasted her way through Asia and Europe, leading to a position as a private chef for a family of multi-millionaires in London.
Caitlin is also a trained performance designer – she is passionate about creating unique dining experiences that delight and surprise the diner – dining that is fun and exciting as well as delicious!

Graham Bloxham – Founder, CEO and Kitchen nightmare.
When Graham started Social cooking in August 2011 he didnt know the front end of a nice dinner or a decent dessert. He says he was a certified Kitchen nightmare. He also thought cooking dinner was a thing to be done in under 20 minutes including preparation. His dinners often met with “Ogh dad not that again”. My family are now slightly happier Bloxham says. The thing I get out of this business is watching people and corporates come slightly beat up with the world and not quite sure whats going to happen or what to expect and leave in a sort of highly animated buzz/ trance having learned some hints and tips and having had the most memorable entertaining night out in ages. They have often had a wine or three, met some new people and with a full belly. Bring back the family dining table experience I say. I live and love this business and serving you, our customers. Keep coming and well keep challenging you.!
Social cooking – even the name appealed to me. I’ve spent years as a chef and it’s anything but social. I have managed to spend more than a decade travelling this amazing world because of peoples need to eat. Along the way I have worked with some wonderful people and some incredible ingredients. Cooking at social cooking allows me to have fun, teach at a really fun but challenging level. Its a great place and the feedbackI get encourages me to keep on trucking.
I am nearly a lawyer and I love to build. Im a budding comedian and all round supportive good guy. Social cooking is a fun place to work. Its dynamic mix of catching up with mates, learning to cook and a few drinks is exactly where I love to work. I enjoy socialising and entertaining and my role is to show people a good, fun but safe time.
I look after many different things at Social cooking. I have been here from day one and i have seen this business grow, change and get better. I am training to be a HR professional currently. I love baking, just cant get enough of it. Enjoy the finer details of baking, floral art and making little dibbles for cakes and cup cake’s. I have recently completed my first full scale cook class which I’m proud of and the customers really enjoyed. I am also the smiley face that you email to book in and answer your questions.
I love to cook, I am a trained Chef and my passion is Italian food. I love Social cooking for its vibrancy, fun entertaining atmosphere. The customers come in quiet”ish” and leave really happy and satisfied. I really focus on how ingredients can be adapted to different food styles. The knowledge I’m able to pass on makes this all worth while.
