At the age of ten, I was first introduced to the kitchen by my Caribbean parents and grandparents. From that point on, I have continued to be obsessed with mastering Caribbean techniques, along with sharing my passion for food.
Though cooking meals for my family was a daily part of my upbringing, I studied design in school before eventually pursuing a career in fashion as Creative Director for a design publication. However, despite my love for my career, my passion for cooking was revived when I traveled abroad to several parts of Asia and the Caribbean. During my excursions, I was able to observe new farming techniques, taste new spices, and learn methods that I eventually incorporated into my arsenal. Finally, I shifted the focus from fashion into food, which led me to work with James Beard award-winning Chef, Erik Bruner-Yang of Maketto & Spoken English, and Chef Mina Stone at Mina's, PS1. Under their tutelage, I refined my natural talents and found a position in the kitchen of a well-known South East Asian Gastropub in Brooklyn.
Leveraging my experience and natural talent, I launched Pimento Catering in the summer of 2018. Since then I have hosted private events and supper clubs throughout New York City, and I am eager to host your next event.
