Eleven36 is the Brooklyn-based headquarters for our full-service catering company and take-away café. We are a small team with a few key players; Nahvae Frost, Sheelagh Regan, Edward Priesner and Kali Sanders - though our friends and collaborators are many, diverse and wildly, wildly talented.
Nahvae’s experience in the kitchen is extensive and varied though the philosophy behind what it is that she does is relatively simple. She strives to introduce people to how it feels to eat vegetable-forward food aligned with the season, how different locally sourced food can taste, and how we feel when our bodies are finely tuned. She generally encourages her clientele to eat whole rather than processed foods, sourcing meat, fish and poultry from local vendors she knows and trusts, buying organic, grass-fed, free-roaming and cage-free to support and maintain a well-balanced, well-rounded diet.
Her hope is that by making these practices more accessible it will foster a better understanding of why they are important, and will nurture a healthier approach towards cooking, eating and overall well-being by recognizing food as a simple and necessary medium through which we can profoundly effect change in ourselves and greatly impact the world around us.
Sheelagh Regan rules the front-of-the-house with the gentlest of hands. Her background in fashion has fostered a keen and impeccable eye for detail; her energy is both boundless and effortless her late-night driving skills, masterful, and frankly, her talents are too many to name.
Edward Priesner is the constancy that keeps us afloat. His precision and ability to interpret our most colossal jobs is magnificent. He is our sous chef, our heavy lifter - the method behind the madness.
Kali Sanders is a visionnaire, extraordinaire. She is ever glamorous - the beguiling brain behind our branding and the design of our headquarters. She is currently based in Portland, Oregon.
