LEAD LINE COOK
THIS IS CODY. He’s a local, having called McMinnville home for more than a decade. HUSBAND to Ashley, FATHER to Nora (6 yrs) and Lucille (2.5 months), Gallery Theatre PERFORMER, REGULAR at 411 Eatery, and CURATOR of McMinnville’s most impressive collection of crazy socks (…have you seen the elephant socks??!!!?).
For the last 2 years at Community Plate, Cody has served as lead line cook, but he can also be found concocting our fresh, from-scratch soups, tinkering with his chorizo recipe, or perfecting our killer new house pastrami… all while rocking out to musical genius, Dave Matthews.
WHAT DOES CODY LOVE ABOUT WORKING AT CP?
“Everything!” he claims. “I love that our open kitchen keeps us connected to our customers and community. And our team is like a family… I feel comfortable contributing my ideas and I know that I am heard.”
