Introduction: I ran fine dining restaurants for 9 years and worked in them for 14. Much of how I approach my food and business now is done with a restaurant chef's sensibilities. Included in that process is that fact that I source much of the product I use from local purveyors. This runs the gamut from meats and produce to grains and specialty product. Literally every menu for every event is different; no set menu selections or lists of items to choose from. I build flavors, textures, and styles based on every client's tastes, needs and desires for their specific event. The cooking first and foremost, but the interaction with clients as well. When you run restaurants, you are often tied to the stove and have limited time and opportunities to interact with your guests. With my business now, I can provide the same level of craftsmanship and love when it comes to the dishes but I can also really engage with my clients and their guests, talk about the food and why I love cooking, and really enhance their enthusiasm for what they are tasting.

Adam had 3 weeks to prepare an elegant cocktail reception for 100 in the middle of summer. The appearance and taste of his beautiful served appetizers were the talk of event (besides the happy couple) and he was able to coordinate all of the rental items and delivery. Incredibly talented, professional, on time and on budget. I would definitely recommend his catering services.

We had a last minute very elegant and unique dinner that came about that we needed a caterer for. Adam from Chaia Cucina was the first to respond. Out of fear no one else would respond we excepted his services and thank goodness we did. Adam is a genius with food and ways to prepare it. This event had to be something that the attendees had never experienced before and Adam delivered in spades. The food he served was unique and truly things we had never had before. His passion for food is evident in the way he talks about it and presents it. Everything was delicious and amazing. Coming upon Adam on Thumbtack was a blessing and we will absolutely use him again.

I hired Adam to provide a sushi making lesson for a corporate team building event. He was fantastic! He had everything necessary for our sushi class and was able to accommodate our team's allergy issues and food preferences. Food was top quality and delicious. Adam has a fun personality, his instructions were easy to follow and thorough. The team loved everything about this activity. I've already recommended him to another team (hope they decide to use him). I highly recommend!

My caterers came to my house early to cook the yummy food. They were so helpful at setting up and helping me to get the presentation tables ready. When my guest arrived, they were so professional. My guests called the event "Classy." The food was divine and beautifully presented. The caterers cleaned up and slipped out quietly so that I could enjoy time with my guests. My kitchen was left spotless!! Thank you, Chaia Cucina Catering! Nancy Willams
