My name is Rakita, I am the PROUD Owner & Head Chef at Lady Jays Catering! I am blessed to have an amazing family Keith Ames (of almost 8 years) 2 wonderful children (Maddison 6yrs and Malachi 3 yrs), amazing parents and siblings. I am honored that God chose ME to share His love through food with you all! I look forward to creating memories and bringing back warm memories of family through our food! Established in 2019. I learned about love while cooking alongside her grandmother, who was always happy to help whenever folks were hungry in her Washington, D.C., neighborhood. Familiar comfort foods — fried chicken, grits, collard greens, macaroni and cheese — were favorites with family members as well as neighbors. It was a way of filling bellies and touching hearts, Ames said. “People call this soul food, but I saw for myself how it really was food for the soul and that’s stayed with me all this time,”
