“Growing up we weren’t rich, but my family provided me with strong support, and encouraged me to act on my aspirations. One of my fondest memories, is of hosting my first dinner party at the age of 15 in the family garage...it was quite an elegant affair complete with cloth napkins that I bought with my allowance. Stories of my grandmother‘s legendary cooking inspired my culinary curiosity, igniting my love for entertaining, decorating, and seeking out richer experiences in life.” as a cook, Lakesha has traveled across four continents studying local cuisine while attending cooking schools in France and Italy.
