Keith's story

Judy and Keith have been cooking all their lives. Judy Cyrus holds an Associates in Business Management from Reading Area Community College. Entrepreneurs by heart, Judy and Keith have done everything from artist development to brand consulting for several independent artists and small businesses. Keith and Judy decided to get married in the Spring of 2015. They looked at dozens of caterers for their wedding. Not one of them was affordable or offered the varied menu they were seeking. Keith is Trinidadian American and Judy is Puerto Rican and Dominican. They wanted a reception spread that included each of their favorite foods reflecting their Caribbean American backgrounds. After much conversation, they decided to cater their own wedding reception! Their wedding guests were shocked and in awe of the couple's menu choices. By winter, family and friends were calling to get another taste of their favorite foods from the wedding. CaSpanish was our son Deion's mispronunciation of the word Spanish as a toddler. When people asked what we called our ourselves, we thought it was the perfect way to describe our food fusion!
