“The Possibility Of The Dream Gives Strength”
“Soul food is our personal passport to the past. It is much more about heritage than it is about hominy.”
Jackie’s Dream: EST. March 6, 2015.
Jackie’s Dream started as just that – a dream! Jackie worked in the food industry for years as she pursued her dream of someday owning her own soul food restaurant. Working in a wide variety of restaurants including Red Lobster and the Crown & Goose, Jackie always dreamed to own her own place.
“I come from a family that cooks. It’s what my mother, grandmother, and uncles taught me,” she says. “We made our own jelly, chow-chow, pickles. My grandfather had chickens so we had fresh eggs. We hardly ever went to the store. We made everything from scratch, and I continue to do it that way. Everything is peeled, cut, chopped here. We eliminate cans whenever we can—I had fresh green beans and corn all summer long.”
