Coleen Speaks

Years of Participation

Coleen Speaks’ sharp vision and fierce creativity have defined her culinary career, and are the hallmarks of her decade old PoshNosh Catering company and her new Whitaker & Atlantic and Hummingbird.

From Emeril Lagasse’s NOLA Restaurant in New Orleans to Enoteca Vin with Chef Ashley Christensen in Raleigh, Speaks sharpened her skills in the front and back of the house before launching her own catering company in 2007, PoshNosh Catering. After a successful decade catering to Raleigh’s adventurous food connoisseurs, Speaks vision for a large-scale, edgy, urban event space came to life at Whitaker & Atlantic, followed by Hummingbird, an intimate all-day cocktail bar which offered a return to her restaurant roots.

From the new Hummingbird bar and Whitaker & Atlantic event space, to PoshNosh Catered events, Chef Coleen Speaks’ unfettered style makes for one delicious soiree after another.
