For Us, By Us

Adá is a marketplace & community for global Black food culture

We help private chefs, culinary creators, and food & beverage entrepreneurs grow their brands.

Grow with Adá

In today’s world, private chefs have options. No longer is restaurant life the sole professional path. Through social media and marketplaces like ours, culinary entrepreneurs can expand their brands and build businesses that serve them.

Through our platform, Black private chefs, culinary creators, and allies can sell virtual and in-person experiences – like cooking classes, mixology lessons, and dinner parties – to companies for inclusive team-building celebrations.
