Chef Aleta S Williamsexecutive chef and co-owner of Loquacious Culinary Events, was inspired to begin her culinary career because of a simple observation, “The only time I see you happy is when you’re cooking”.

This motivated the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign graduate to leave her corporate career in operations and enroll at Le Cordon Bleu Chicago.

After her graduation in August 2004, Aleta honed her skill set by developing recipes and working as part of the senior staff for several high-end catering companies. In 2006, she realized her dream of starting her business, and Loquacious Culinary Events was born. Aleta’s love of creating wholesome and eclectic meals shines through in the taste, quality, and presentation of her cuisine; her commitment to client service is known industry wide. She has created dining experiences and luxury tastings for clients such as Swarovski, BravoTV, Chicago Sinfonietta, and Adidas; and has been featured as an influential chef in Unilever’s North American Knorr campaign. She was also featured on WGN Midday news lunch break several times.

As a firm believer in giving back, Aleta currently serves as the food service coordinator for the Lasalle Street Church Breaking Bread Ministry, a soup kitchen that feeds approximately 200 meals every Wednesday evening to the homeless and food insecure. She currently also works with The Renaissance Collaborative, where she helped to develop a culinary & hospitality workforce development program. She is the presently chair of the Rotary Club of Chicago Job1 Committee that assists Chicago youth with job readiness training and places them with summer internship opportunities. She has donated her time as a Vegetarian/Vegan Celebrity Chef for the annual Meals on Wheels Celebrity Chef Ball for more than ten years and served on the board of directors for 6 years, was a mentor for the Healthy School Lunch Competition for Southside Occupational High School for three years, served as a Culinary Arts Instructor through After School Matters. In 2023, will become the first individual of color to be president of the Rotary Club of Chicago in their 120-year history.

Loquacious Culinary Events is focused on bringing to life each client’s unique vision through specialty menus and production products. Aleta and her team are standing ready to make your event memorable and are committed to creating a dining experience that will touch your soul.
