Entrepreneur Of The Day: Qakestry Catering
2017 will be the year that a Cincinnati, Ohio, chef will be embarking on the journey of a flourishing entrepreneurial reality. Quianna Lashay Thompson, is a young, but “seasoned” soul food chef. Inspired by her grandmother’s cooking, Chef Quianna has created Cincinnati’s premier soul food experience. Chef Quianna has a fun and flavorful personality, just like her savory dishes!
Recently, Quianna has launched Qakestry (pronounced Kak’Estre), a soul food catering company. The name Qakestry was selected because it means “to bond over great food with great people that have an indescribable, unexplained chemistry.” Qakestry offers classic southern food such as, collard greens, sweet potato pie, macaroni and cheese, and a variety of desserts like pound cake.
“I love to cook great food like what I grew up on. There was never a day I went into my grandmother’s kitchen and didn’t have amazing food so I try to bring that same atmosphere wherever I cook,” said Chef Quiana.
