Festive housewarming party

“My wife and I hired Elaine to cater a housewarming party for over 50 people and she did a FANTASTIC job!  She arrived exactly on time and had everything up and running quickly. The carnitas she prepared were very tender and flavorful and the guacamole was some of the best I’ve had in all of southern California. 


Elaine was also very accommodating and attentive to various allergen/dietary restrictions which was one of the reasons why we hired her for the party.  Other caterers I spoke with were not flexible with their menu/ingredients or they were four times the cost.  I look forward to our next event so we experience Elaine’s delicious food and I definitely recommend her for any of your catering needs!”

Tennis club appreciation day 

Chef Elaine catered for our event at the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club.  The food was delicious and her professionalism and attention to detail were appreciated by all.  I have highly recommended having her cater for us again at our next event.

Book signing event 

I had the pleasure of working with Chef Elaine Adamek and Olive It at a Rod Laver book signing event I put on at the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club. We had 150 guests and served finger foods and beverages. Elaine’s menu was wonderful and creative. She was able to appeal to all eating groups with very tasty out of the ordinary appetizers.


Elaine was prompt. Well dressed and organized as were her two staff members. Elaine’s presentation and description of her food were top notch and she was very flexible when we changed the time of service and duration. She had everything cleaned and packed up when she


I would highly recommend Elaine Adamek and Olive It and I look forward to working with her again in the future.
