WITH a penchant for anything cuisine and the determination to give it her best shot, Anita Mootoo, somewhat introverted, has for years, been literally hiding a coveted talent in cooking.
But just under two years ago, prompted by friends with every good intention, she agreed to let her light shine and ventured into cooking and selling lunches for working people at her homestead, in the business community at Old Road, Land of Canaan, East Bank Demerara.
Recognising that A. Gafoor & Sons has a hardware establishment with a large workforce and located just across the road from her home and snackette, she zeroed in on that possibility and so was able to get the thumbs up to start selling lunches to employees on demand.
It worked well. The food, hygienically prepared and attractively presented continues to be tasty; the response – good and the clients keep running back for more. This is with the net result that Anita has developed quite a reputation for tasty and affordable dishes in Land of Canaan.
And so, close to two years, she’s been doing wonders, daily cooking and serving lunches on demand from her snackette window without having to step out of her home. She has employed efficient assistance to expedite the preparation and delivery process.
