We had the good fortune of connecting with Megan & Skylar Klembith and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Megan & Skylar, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Megan and Skylar Klembith run Klembetch Foodies. Sisters who are five years apart, their love of cooking is palpable. Both thrive on pushing the envelope and changing things up to create yummy and healthy twists on even the most basic of dishes. Ahead of their time, the sisters were preparing raw food desserts, learning to substitute almond flour and different sweeteners, like coconut sugar, way before those trends hit the mainstream.
The sisters grew up cooking healthy and innovative recipes, especially centered around holidays. They began posting their creations on social media and got flooded with recipe requests. People always wanted to know how to make the dishes they created. One day, Megan had a lightbulb moment at work and decided they should start a joint cooking Instagram. Since they already had several family recipes and photos compiled, they were able to start posting immediately after setting up the food blog. Their friends and family have been incredibly supportive throughout the entire process. From there, they started making TikToks, Reels, and YouTube videos. They are only just beginning and can’t wait to see what else they can show the world.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We are sisters who share an incredible passion for cooking and baking, specifically in the realm of healthy and natural foods. Driven to seek out the freshest of produce, we love going to local farms and making farm-to-table recipes. This year we’re excited to launch our website and increase our YouTube video postings. Access to healthy and unique ingredients is essential to our brand and the reason we have a strong obsession for Trader Joe’s. We love collaborating and growing with other accounts.
One of our goals is to write a cook book. The main challenge we have faced is time management. Both of us have full-time positions, making the researching, recipe testing, and filming a second job that consumes our remaining hours. Despite the limitation of time, we know our passion for all things food will prevail. Most importantly, one of the biggest lessons we have learned over the years is that no matter what, our family has been supportive and will always be there for us.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The week would be full of exciting new stops and shops! We would make sure to take them to our Farmers Market or perhaps a local farm, and prepare a fresh farm-to-table meal. Over the course of a few days we would include the following. In the morning we would start them off with an Iced Chaggacino Oat Milk Latte at Alfreds. For breakfast we may take them for Pancakes at The Griddle Cafe. We wouldn’t want them to miss the Chopped Salad from La Scala for lunch. After visiting a pop-up exhibit, perhaps strolling the shops in Silverlake, or even venturing for a sunset walk on the beach, we would take them for a sushi dinner at Katana in WeHo or for amazing Italian at Jon & Vinny’s. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
If we could shout out anyone it would be our mother, Tammy Klembith. Growing up, she always taught us hard-work ethics, kindness, and passion. She is a writer and director, and after all these years, she has never given up on her dream. No matter the obstacles, she stays motivated and passionate. We would not be here today if it wasn’t for her. She has supported us, loved us, and always encouraged us to follow our dreams. Despite hardships growing up, we always had food on the table and were able to get creative with few ingredients, which has inspired many recipes we still make and love to this day.
