Waynette developed an early interest in the kitchen with her grandmother and great

family. She witnessed the craft of her elders preparing meals. When she was growing
up, Waynette prepared family meals for her three younger siblings while her mother worked two jobs.
As a young adult, Waynette started preparing meals for her girlfriends and at small
family events, which ignited their taste buds and rapidly increased requests for her
special culinary skills. Her catering business was birthed from sitting at the table with her
girlfriends who were enjoying one of her meals. They fondly named her business ‘All
Chef Way learned how to use the freshest of ingredients from the gardens of her grandmother and great grandmother which is the base of her cooking style.
