Meet Chef La-Toya Fagon
Born in Canada of Jamaican descent, she grew up cooking and eating “island foods,” but didn’t truly appreciate that cuisine until recently. After gaining years of experience, La-toya’s creativity started to flourish and she crafted her own take on ‘Island Paradise’, fusing her cooking style of traditional Caribbean ingredients together with Mediterranean flavours. This created some new flavours, with some familiarity of home-style, soulful goodness. Within months of experimentation, determination and hard work, La-toya tapped into her entrepreneurial spirit and Twist Catering came to fruition.
“I love everything about food – the smells, the flavours, the tastes, the texture and colours and mainly combining the raw essence of ingredients and putting it together, creating an explosion of tastes on one’s palate. As my motto states its Culinary Simplicity with a Twist.”
“Food is the hub of all things, food is what makes people happy, and it is what brings people together.”
