Work Culture at Luella's Southern Kitchen

Our Story

Luella brought her southern roots with her including her flare in the kitchen. Every holiday event or family get together would be held at Luella’s house. Growing up I loved her cooking and would hang around her in the kitchen after school until my mom would pick me up. As I started to grow as a professional I would pick Luella’s brain for recipes and techniques. She taught me how to make Cornbread and Gumbo, amongst other things. Today I can express my life experiences through my food. The more of my southern influence comes through in my food, the more a student of the cuisine I become. Over the years I frequently travel to the south to places like New Orleans, Georgia and Charleston, mostly in search of the brilliant food of the south. Some of my personal favorites are my Shrimp and Grits, which are made in the style of New Orleans BBQ Shrimp, Luella’s Chicken Gumbo and after my trip to Charleston the Low Country Shrimp and Crab Boil and She Crab Soup! The food of Luella's Southern Kitchen will reflect this story
