We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandy Hinds-Boone and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brandy, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Chef Brandy has been preparing meals since she was 9 years old! While Cooking in the kitchen alongside her mother, Gloria Carter she learned how to cater to your appetite at an early age!! Chef Brandy spent a great deal of time in the kitchen with her mother who was a great cook as well. Her mother taught her about diverse recipes and cooking with your heart and soul. Her passion for cooking was instilled in her as a child. In 2010 her mother passed away and that was the driving force for her to carry on her love for cooking in memory of her mother.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
