A little bit about Chef Thia: Haitian Cynthia “Chef Thia” Verna is a dynamic and vivacious personality. She is a culinary expert specializing in gourmet Caribbean-fusion cuisine, an accomplished author, a seasonal artist and soon-to-be national cooking show host.
Although today Chef Thia is known for infusing Caribbean, African, Latin, Asian, French and Mediterranean flavors into her Haitian fine dining repertoire, her culinary career began in Haiti at the age of 8. There, in her grandmother’s kitchen, her passion for creating inventive dishes was ignited. That passion led her to become a chef in her mother’s restaurant by the age of 17, and not long after opening her own restaurant - Atelier Les Bamboos. She mastered the art of Haitian cuisine, studying under Haitian top chef Reginald Koury, then working at the prestigious Club Med before moving to the United States at 21.
Chef Thia has been consulting with American food service giant Aramark since 2010, and has been published in several magazines and newspapers including Le Nouveliste, Ticket Magazine, Viv Magazine, the Miami Herald, Fleur D’epices and Modern Flavor Magazine.
She currently lives in Miami with her 3 children and spends a few months each year focusing on her unique brand of bottle art.
