Kiesha Colbert

I'm Chef Kiesha Colbert born in New York , I have always been passionate about good food. My previous career of nearly twenty years as a social worker in the field of foster care and adoption also made me passionate about taking care of people.

While I am not a classically-trained, professional chef, I have been blessed with the tremendous gift of being able to combine my two life-long passions to do something I love: take care of people with good food.

My approach to food is bold and adventurous. I combine great ingredients and great cuisines from my three favorite areas grandma's kitchen the backyard BBQ pit and the taste of the Caribbean with a punch of bold flavors and a down home feel. The result is healthful, gourmet cuisine with a bit of a kick and a memory of granny's kitchen family events and oh that great Caribbean vacation.

After growing up In a creole household where as a little girl I would sit and watch my grandmother fill the room with amazing smells of her awesome creole recipes. I decided to bring our love of New Orleans flavors to the modern mobile dining mecca of Philadelphia. We wanted to combine the authentic tastes of my family’s home with the new forward-thinking food movements of Northeastern Pennsylvania to present a non-traditional, Authentic Creole dining experience. When I first started “ Rollin In The Springs, LLC AMONGST OTHER THINGS “ I wanted to accommodate our fast growing economy by bringing a full meal experience in one bite with our specialty spring rolls. This lead to our vast choice of fillings and sharing my family’s Creole Cuisine with the the surrounding tri-state area.. Our dual menu is designed to entice our working environment for on the go and/or for our customers who want to dive into The New Orleans, Louisiana experience.

I grew up in the North  Philadelphia area where I was involved in many youth programs  to help the community! I always had a love for the food  industry. At the age of 10 years old I cooked my very first full  meal, which was whole turkey, greens, Yams & Mac & Cheese,  I remember being hungry and my mom was at work I called her  and told her I’m going to cook. My mother told me nit to touch  her first but I was determined to show her that I can do it ,  cause I watch her everyday . At the age of 12-year-old I was  hired to work the summer food program which I help prep and  serve the community hot meals. In March of 1996 I was hired  to work as a prep assistant for a catering company called  Mom's and Daughter's Catering which my love and passion  grew , I then took up hotel restaurant tourism at Strawberry  Mansion High School. I began to sell cakes and pies everyday  from 1999 until 2002 which then turned into platters for  schools, hospitals and Corp offices, by 2009 I have started doing  small catering jobs for family and friends but I knew in my heart  I wanted more so I enrolled into JNA Culinary school in 2013 and stay there until April of 2013 than transferred to The Art  institute of Culinary , I remember chef Joe speaking on my  dishes every morning and telling me how motivated and  determined I looked in the lab. My love and passion was the 

push that gave me to move forward with building my catering  business legally wanting to take on the world and show my  talent & skills, so in 2014 me and my husband took a leap of  faith and build our own catering company Mrs. YUMMIES for  UR TUMMY CATERING SERVICE LLC.

Lindsay Hills

Hello, Chef Lindsay here. I have always been fascinated by food since I was a child. In fact, I stole it right out of people's hands so I could try it. So, let us just say my love of food began at a young age. The passion grew stronger and stronger over time. I was born in Virginia and raised in New Jersey for the first 18 years of my life, and I now live in Coatesville, Chester County, PA.
I graduated from Coatesville Senior High School, as well as The Technical College High School Brandywine Campus for Culinary Arts. I am a proud graduate of Hyde Park, New York's Culinary Institute of America. During my time at the CIA, I spent four months on externship at the Addison Reserve Country Club in Delray Beach, Florida, where I had the opportunity to gain experience in the field of culinary arts while working alongside some incredible chefs.
I worked at Restaurant Alba in Malvern, PA, and had the pleasure of cooking for Martha Stewart. In addition, I was able to cook on a Philadelphia cooking show with my high school chef instructor, Chef Jarrett Young, owner of Create-a-Cook, who is still my mentor. In addition, I work for Create-a-Cook, teaching kids how to cook at a summer camp program alongside Chef Young.
I currently work as a Personal Chef and own Lindsay's Lunch Box in Chester County, Pennsylvania. My goal is to relieve people's stress by providing better, healthier eating options; food that is so fresh that it makes you feel spoiled. Individual and family-style lunches and dinners are available. But it does not stop there. I also cater parties and teach children's cooking classes. I enjoy what I do and my job, and I am grateful for the support I receive from my family. This is only the beginning for me!
