Chef Lacey Williams Brings Elevated Jamaican Cuisine To Martha’s Vineyard

NyamnzMV’s founder is bringing culinary delights to Martha’s Vineyard.

Lacey Williams, founder of NyamnzMV, is an up-and-coming chef in Martha’s Vineyard. 

Chef Lacey provides a rich dining experience for one community and builds and shares resources with the other.

“How do I let people know that my opinion about food is valuable if they haven’t tasted my food?”
The question and the pandemic were the seeds the Jamaican-born chef needed to jump-start her dream. She spoke to BLACK ENTERPRISE about how she began as a one-woman operation and has steadily scaled up with the help of her community over the years. 

“I wanted to be able to offer hope, a little bit of delicious joy that looks beautiful. I want you to feel like you are in a restaurant when you open that takeout box.”

Starting with individual deliveries, Chef Lacey noticed the excitement for her dishes and soon expanded to catering private events. Her intimate dining experiences– complete with serving staff– kept the talented cook booked and busy during the Martha’s Vineyard busy season. When asked how she initially made the leap with little capital and big dreams, she boasted that there is another side of the island many don’t see.

“We are a really tight-knit community. There are Facebook pages for everything.” 
It was a Facebook post that the chef attributed to the elevation of her business.

The proud Jamaican also imparts her patria’s rich history of cooking techniques and ingredients to give her customers an experience that will leave them enriched and satisfied on all levels. The name Nyamnz is rooted in Jamaican culture. She radiated joy speaking about the roots of Jerked meat in its original iteration.

Nyamnz is Jamaican Patois “meaning to eat,” Nyamnz is that gathering bringing everybody together to eat.”

Offering private dining, cooking classes, or paint-n-sips, she’ll be bringing her delicious food and culture to a city near you.
