Wade's career has taken him from his roots in Sonoma, California, to the island of Maui and then to the Colorado mountains. He worked his way up early from pastry chef to line cook to sous chef, then to executive chef at several highly acclaimed establishments including Chanterelle in California, Wildflower in Vail and The Little Nell in Aspen.
Even as a James Beard Award-winning chef, Wade had the curiosity to explore other angles of the industry. He traded in his chef coat for a short time to learn the management side of restaurants. He ran the food and beverage department at The Sebastian in Vail, and then opened The 10th Restaurant on Vail Mountain, guiding that project from hard hat to a fully functioning and successful establishment. He didn't stay in a suit for too long, however, as it's in the kitchen where Wade feels most at home.
