Clandestine Kitchen, LLC (CK) was born in 2017 from the desire to bring total body wellness, and clean nutrition, to Boston’s south shore neighborhoods. Originally from Seattle, Washington, CK Chef & Owner, Courtney Doyle, relocated to Hingham, Massachusetts from San Francisco, California 14 years ago and longed for the fresh, organic purity of the resources regularly found in the northern California area (yes, even back then!). A self-taught culinary student on many levels, Doyle draws from her experience at Williams Sonoma, Inc (having the pleasure of working just 1 floor down from Chuck Williams and just down the corridor from the WSI test kitchen), her vast entertaining experience and her love of all food that is healthy, fresh and delicious, bringing CK clients new, innovative twists on classic dishes and creating new flavor profiles that support a commitment to gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free nutrition.
Clandestine Kitchen is a “total body wellness” brand, fusing together clean nutrition with other important facets of healthy living such as fitness, beauty, fashion and surrounding oneself with good, positive vibes. By bringing community leaders together to provide a one-stop resource for complete and total health and wellness, CK’s mission to promote a healthy and positive lifestyle is applicable to all people, in every town, that seek to embrace a lifetime of nutrition and wellness while staying true to the “everything in moderation” mantra that allows for the moments in life to live freely and indulge. CK is not a diet or a quick-fix – it’s a commitment to fostering total body wellness including mental health, self-care and to give the body the opportunity to recover and heal itself through clean eating and nurturing the body, mind and soul.

Meet the CK Team
Courtney Doyle, born and raised in Seattle, Washington, is Head Chef and Owner of Clandestine Kitchen, LLC (CK). CK, a ‘total body wellness’ lifestyle brand and home & corporate healthy meal delivery service, was born from Doyle’s desire to share her love of food, passion for cooking, and dedication to nutrition and healthy living with her community. A lifelong athlete with a heart for community service and family, Doyle relocated to Hingham, MA from San Francisco, CA where she had furthered her interest in the culinary world and was exposed to clean, organic food and holistic life practices well ahead of the movement that had seemingly just made its way out to the east coast. Surrounding herself with mentors, in and out of the kitchen, Doyle’s passion to create healthy food (CK specializes in gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free meals using local organic produce and clean organic proteins) and curate a wellness destination encompassing all areas of self-care, nutrition and healthy living practices, have come to fruition with CK. A wife, mom of 3 (4 counting her yellow Lab, Jaxson), former marketing and communications professional and activist for her community, Doyle spends her time outside of CK on the sidelines of her children’s sports games, exploring menus at restaurants with her husband, traveling, enjoying live music (favorite genre is country) and breathing in the moments that make your body and soul feel alive, strong, and capable. A former basketball player, Doyle is particularly passionate about creating food for clean energy, body restoration, and the power of engaging the mind to channel the power of positive thinking and clear vision. Though her ‘kitchen runway collection’ of yoga pants and baseball caps are her current wardrobe staples, Doyle loves fashion and beauty and believes that the only way to truly ‘glow’ as a human being, is to love yourself, find the light in others and that a beautiful and honest smile really can change the world.
