Meet The Chef
After losing my mom at the age of 8, I knew then my life was going to change. My great-grandmother wasn’t playing that though, so she put me in the kitchen. I knew I had to take care of my three brothers, my sister, and my dad. I learned to cook at a young age and I absolutely loved it. You see cooking soulfood has to be in your gut, and baking has to be your passion. I knew over the years that my purpose was in life, baking, and cooking. These are the gifts that God planted inside of me, and I chose to use my gifts.
When I was 55 years of age I decided I wanted to go back to school in culinary. Well, guess what? I was the oldest one there in a class of 20 people, and when I completed school only 5 others had graduated alongside me. In 2016 I received my Pastry Chef degree, and it didn’t stop there.
In 2018 God woke me up at 3:00 am, with the idea of cake jars. He showed me what flavors to use, what size jars, he showed me everything. That same day, I called my daughter Nicole and told her about the dream. She told me to simply “Do it”, so I took off! My husband bought me a food truck, and everything fell into place. And here we are two years strong D’s Soulfood and Pastries home of the cake jars and soulfood Sundays!
