Wilnie Keara Hunter is a self-taught chef, entrepreneur, and educator. Chef Hunter is a native of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where she first discovered her interest in cooking. Later on, she developed an increasing passion for food and foodservice which led her to start Kreyol Flavors. Thanks to her heritage and having spent most of her life in Queens, New York, Caribbean, and Latin flavors play a major role in Chef Hunter's style of cooking: "fresh, savory and in your face!" as she would say it.
I was honored to capture these beautiful images for Chef Hunter's brand launch. You see, Chef Hunter's husband is a dear friend of mine and I have attended several dinner parties at their beautiful home - so I have had the pleasure of knowing about Chef Hunter's talent for quite some time!
To watch the growth of her brand over the last few years has been amazing! Everything I've had that was prepared by her has been amazing. And I could not wait to get my hands on her special seasoning blend, marinade and spicy slaw!! Of course, I'm no chef so it doesn't always turn out as well as when she prepares the meal - but this is more of a reason for me to book one of her private chef cooking classes!
Chef Hunter's private cooking parties have been described as an unforgettable, hands-on culinary experience. Hosted in the comfort of your home you start the evening with a warm welcome while guests enjoy Hors D’oeuvres, wine, and feel good music. Next, under the guidance of the talented chefs, your group will cook and execute a delicious family-style meal. At the end of your hard work, your group will enjoy the fruits of your labor at the dining table together.
In addition to dinner parties and cooking parties, the Kreyol Flavors chefs are available for any of your catering needs including drop-off catering, cocktail receptions, breakfast meetings, lunches, corporate events, holiday parties, weddings, and more. Contact them today to start planning your event!
