This is my version of soul food y’all. This meal has been on my spirit for a minute now, each course is familiar with a modern twist. You know I will have you covered with a cocktail or wine pairing with each course. Each guest will leave with a special gift from Nicole and Me, including a beautiful decorative pillow and something to sip on later. Join us for an intimate dinner prepared with love by me and hosted by Nicole Crowder in her beautiful studio.

Course 1 // Deviled Eggs

The perfect bite, a little tangy, a little sweet, a little crunchy

Pickled radish, herbs, spicy red pepper jam and crispy onions.

Course 2 // Collards, Grits & Fish

A staple from my childhood with a modern twist.

Fresh collards braised in IPA, caramelized in date molasses, and seasoned with spicy Berbere with a light fillet.

Course 3 // Oxtail Ravioli

I have a story about this dish. I'll tell it at dinner.

Jamaican style oxtail, herbed pesto, fresh parm.

Course 4 // Pound Cake

One of my mom's favorites.

A simple classic with seasonal fruit.
