Feast with Chef Lisa

“The Soul of...” Pop Up Dinner Series

image23

Here in the South, we have our own ideas of what soul food means to us. What I have learned through my travels is that every city, region, country and culture has it’s own culinary soul. Join me as I take you on a trip with inspired dishes from my life’s journeys. You don’t need your passport to go on this trip; just bring your appetite (and maybe a friend), and experience the flavors and culture - the very soul of -  regional cuisine from around the globe!  

Soulful Sundays

Sunday dinners at Chef Lisa’s house will make you feel like you are back home.  Come enjoy your favorite southern dishes so good it makes you want to slap somebody (just not the chef!). 


Chef Lisa keeps the legacy alive by pairing her Southern background and family recipes with her classic French culinary training. She creates dishes that stem from her roots and expand beyond your imagination, and is personally inviting you to her home - one Sunday each month - for an old school Sunday dinner soul food feast!

Stay connected for our upcoming topics and special guests as we share our thoughts, ideas, and experiences in an atmosphere of honor.  There’s a seat at the table for you. Come get full.
