I am the owner of LBcreations catering. I have been cooking for over 15 years professionally and in the kitchen my entire life. My speciality is of Puerto Rican & Italian cuisine. I want to bring the experience of family dinner back. I miss my family and our dinners together. This area brings all different people and all walks of life together, yet we are all so distant. My idea would be to provide family dinner back. While teaching how to cook some of my families recipes. I gained professional culinary experience at the University of Delaware; followed by being apart of the Hotel Hershey culinary team; then moving to Florida to work at a private beach front country club. Returning back to the North East I was offered an opportunity to worked for a large corporation in the Test Kitchen. I look forward in sharing a meal with you!

Cooking with a stranger?! More like cooking with my favorite cousin and swapping stories. The experience was especially special based on the attention to detail - we were celebrating a birthday, and Lacey took time to set the stage with music and decorations. The best part was the time Lacey took to share some of her pro tips for cooking and being so open to share the recipe for each dish.

Simply AMAZING experience. My girlfriend and I drove down to DC for a few days. I wanted to go off the beaten path in terms of restaurants, and Lacey did not disappoint! Since we’re from NYC, Washington Heights more specifically for my girlfriend, our exposure to Latin cuisine is quite significant. From beginning to end, Lacey made us feel at home and kept our bellies full with delicacies from Puerto Rico. We laughed, we exchanged stories from NYC, and most importantly my girlfriend and I left feeling empowered to try Lacey’s recipes at home. Thank you, Lacey, for an unforgettable experience.
