We had the good fortune of connecting with Keeshlyne Lambert and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Keeshlyne, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
Cooking, if I’m stressed, irritated or even just sad the art of cooking always turns my mood into a different vibe. Especially the visions of me plating my food, knowing I have the freedom to create art on a plate gets me super excited * chuckles* I’m like a kid in a candy store.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Hey everyone! I’m keeshlyne the founder of keytwistnflavaz which happens to be the catering company with the key to your stomach. My cuisine is infused with a distinguished blend of island delicacies but doesn’t fall short to other traditional recipes. Growing up in Guadeloupe (French Caribbean Island) and being raised by my Haitian grandmother, I strongly believe diversity is well needed when it boils down to cooking. Therefore, I research different cultures and use their authentic blend of spices to replenish the soul. Keytwistnflavaz doesn’t only cater to your taste buds but we set the tone. We go as far as having rose petals, candles & making balloon bouquets present during our divergent romantic settings. The perfect ambiance for a friendly gathering. Entertainment wise I have many different sounds built in for a perfect playlist based on your preference. I get to bond & connect on a whole different scale with my client as well as enjoying seeing them have a memorable encounter. This journey was far from easy and molded me into the strong beautiful black woman I am today. I struggled and continue to struggle til this day but my determination & discipline won’t allow me to give up on myself nor is giving up an option, I couldn’t even if I tried. Maybe it’s the fire burning in my soul that keeps me pursuing after my passion for cooking or my optimistic view that has me looking beyond the present but into the future where my destiny is fulfilled. Cooking is a lifestyle itself that if I didn’t pursue as a profession I’ll be in the comfort of my own home serving my family with nothing but 5 star meals, because it’s another way of me expressing my infatuation. Without a doubt I know for certain my creations & creativity has a impact in everyone’s gustation after the first bite! Who wouldn’t want the world to get acquainted with Keytwistnflavaz ? Overcoming all my struggles knowing I can ultimately make someone’s day better by serving them fresh authentic food makes it all worth it. Along the way I’ve learned that we all struggle, of course no one publicizes that part as much as the glamour & success but it’s completely okay to have off days. Some weeks or even months are greater than others but never lose that passion, the drive, the fire that got you started.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We’re bit of foodies to be honest, we would probably be on tik tok looking up new restaurants or bars. I also enjoy just trying new activities, believe it or not my first time mini golfing was maybe two months ago. And of course you can never go wrong with bowling.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to give a “ shout out” to my grandmother, a lot of my talent comes from her. Also any & everyone who booked keytwistnflavaz, I can’t forget my support system for always encouraging me and motivating me to not give up.
