Michelle Timothee Chef/Owner of La Talaye Cafe and Catering, will show us how to make a Creole Shrimp Appetizer
Having operated a catering business and sold her food at area farmers’ markets for years, Chef/Owner Michelle Timothee has always dreamed of opening a cafe here in the States. A seasoned culinary professional, Timothee opened her first restaurant at the tender age of 20 in her native Haiti, and has since studied culinary arts at Rockland Community College and also honed her skills at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.
The name “La Talaye” comes from the name of the region where her grandparents lived when she was growing up. “My family’s Haitian roots, and the healthy tradition in which I was raised, inspire me every day,” says Timothee. Using fresh, local and organic ingredients of the highest quality, Timothee has made a fervent commitment to healthy and nutritious food preparation. She does all the shopping herself at local farms and farmer’s markets and utilizes spices not only to enhance flavor, but for their health benefits as well.... See MoreSee Less
