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.

Lacey has great energy. She was very welcoming. The food was absolutely delicious. Really enjoyed the demo and the aromatic flavors of the arroz con pollo. The portion sizes were perfect as well plus we had plenty leftovers. I loved that she also has an option to donate leftovers to a local shelter. Overall amazing date night experience! Would highly recommend!

I chose this experience for me and my boyfriends anniversary and we could not have had a better time. Lacey was extremely energetic, friendly, and catered to all of our needs. The food was absolutely incredible and the environment made the experience that much better. We ended up going over the slotted hour and a half because we had such an amazing conversation with Lacey. She was an incredible host and is an exceptionally talented chef. We will definitely be booking again soon!

Okay everyone needs to try an experience with Lacey!! I looked into the experience for my boyfriend’s birthday (he loves to cook and EAT) and thought this would be awesome. We were blown away!! Lacey made the whole experience so special, we felt incredibly welcome in her home and had awesome conversation. We learned how to make some really yummy Puerto Rican dishes and got some hands on experience as well. The food was INCREDIBLE but Lacey’s hospitality made it that much better. If you’re looking to learn some new skills or just a really fun date idea, she is your girl to host!!! Definitely recommend to all.
