Suggarplums was started on May 9, 2014 in order to fulfill my dream. “If you don’t do what you are good at your going to lose it”.
Food is in my dna. I grew up watching my grandmother and the cooks at my great uncle’s soul food restaurant. As I got older I knew my grandmother was standing beside me; guiding me. It was as if she was showing me exactly what I needed to do. This inspired my cooking. Pulling from recipes to create the dishes that my grandmother would make.
Food was medicine I started cooking to make money and it turned into something much more. It helped me find my purpose. A passion that would help me inspire others .In spite of my record I was determined not to let my past determine my future. On May 9, 2014 I opened up Suggarplums Food 4 the Soul. That is when I knew that dreams really do come true. “You speak what you seek until you see what you say”.
