Chef Lisa Brooks
Lisa has been in the kitchen since she was a little girl. She grew up cooking typical southern foods at the sides of her mother, Mable, grandmother, Mattie, and great-grandmother, Tossie. Even before she could reach the stove she was snapping beans, shucking corn and even plucking chickens. “Sunday dinners were like huge catering jobs for us because my mom had 6 siblings and so I had like 50 cousins... and we all ate Sunday dinner at Mattie’s house!”
Even with all the years of education she received in her family kitchen, she sought classic French culinary training and earned an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts from Central Piedmont Community College and is a Certified Culinarian with the American Culinary Federation.
Her specialties in the kitchen include Southern American, Cajun/Creole, Caribbean and Paleo/Gluten-Free cooking. She won the Moore & Van Allen MVA Bowl Cooking Competition in 2012, numerous Food Lion Chef Challenges, and recently appeared on the Food Network's Guys Grocery Games. She makes regular appearances on local stations WCNC Charlotte Today and WBTV.
“In the South, to prepare a meal for someone is to show them love. I prepare real food for real people- the trendy, health-conscious and just plain ol’ country folk.”
Chef Tracey Mitchell
As a young girl, Chef Tracey was introduced to the kitchen by her grandparents. They instilled in her the love of food and the magic of bringing those you love together around the dinner table.
Chef Tracey now pulls from both her diversified heritage and her classic French culinary education to bring the best of both worlds to your table.
“I am passionate about great food! The feeling I get when people enjoy what I do is indescribable. It is such a blessing!”
With Chef Tracey, you can expect professional service, amazing food, impeccable presentation and most importantly, a memorable dining experience. We are proud to have her on the Heart & Soul team!
