Hi! Welcome to LizetteInvita website, or “Lizette Invites You”, a lively talk show, podcast and cooking reality series, where I cooks traditional Latin inspired meals representing a mélange of Spanish, Portuguese, African and indigenous influences. I explore diverse cuisine in a relaxed and comfortable environment conducive to guests sharing about the more personal moments of their lives. Guests range from Latino Artists, cultural bearers, and personalities. It’s amazing what can happen when you sit down to share a meal!

Lizette is the creator, host and editor of LizetteInvita. She is a North Carolina Latino community personality and a Spanish Language media veteran, having worked in print media as well as in front and behind the camera. I’m a gourmet cook and often hosts dinner parties for friends and guests. I was born in the U.S., and infuse my Dominican and Puerto Rican roots into my cooking. I hope you enjoy my page!
