Caitlin Coen was our official first hire at Baking Steel way back in the summer of 2013. Caitlin graduated from UMASS Amherst in the spring of 2013, majoring in communications. I met her through a mutual friend and I knew she would be the perfect fit for Baking Steel. And while she wasn't exactly a culinary hero in college, I knew we could convert her. Plus, she brought a lot of mad social media skills. I figured we could definitely put those skills to good use.
We don't exactly have job titles at Baking Steel, but Caitlin has had a hand in almost everything, (not just the pizza we are blogging about). If you follow us on Twitter and Instagram, Caitlin is responsible for curating all of the fresh content and our Best of Baking Steel blog. She also dabbles in photography. If you have contacted us by email or phone, she handles just about all if your customer service needs.
Lets learn a little more about Caitlin,
What do you like to cook at home?
Pizza, what a good answer.
And what is your favorite pizza?
This one is easy, Simple Margherita with the Jim Lahey's no knead dough. Always pleases the crowd and my roommates think I'm magical.
What is your all time favorite movie?
This was a softball question, Remember the Titans.
Favorite clothing store and online or retail shopping?
Jcrew hands down. I'm inspired when hitting the stores, but not during peak shopping hours.
Last book you read?
Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins.
What are you thoughts on gluten?
I don't even think about it, if it looks good i'm going to take a bite or two.
Best advice you were ever given?
To be a more effective at communicating, I find it better to be a good listener.
What's your favorite recipe on the Baking Steel blog?
Hmm, I can honestly say I've tried almost all of them. But i'm trying to master the Cheeseburger pizza. That's on top of my list. But I can change my mind next week.
