Jade Verette is a chef and custom cocktail curator out of Brooklyn, New York. When she is not saucing it up for a variety of clients across the Tri-state area, hosting pop-up dinner parties across the country, and providing witty and trill commentary to the Jade+XD & Gettin' Grown podcasts, she is a full-time wife and mother to one of the coolest kids on the planet.
Jade is a purveyor of all things Black and beautiful and draws inspiration from a lineage of amazing cooks and chefs. Her tastes are rooted in Southern, Latin, and Caribbean cuisine, but fret not: she is multifaceted and can take on cuisines from all over the world and make them deliciously her own.
When she isn't feeding folks well, Jade is lending her social commentary to outlets such as Global Grind and their celebrated digital series, Socially Decoded. Also known for incorporating hip-hop culture in to all she does, both Jade’s culinary and her mixology chops have been featured on Ebony.com and Ebony magazine, respectively, as well as other outlets like Saint Heron, xoNecole, and Spotify.
Jade is really tired of talking about herself now. It's weird.
