Maya Lovelace grew up six hours away from Hickory, NC. Every trip to grandma's house was fascinating... the seemingly endless rows of pickles and preserves, the eternally full ceramic pitcher of sweet iced tea in the icebox, the hummingbirds at the moonflowers outside, the squirrels gathering black walnuts in the yard, the cakes hiding in their boxes in every cabinet, waiting to be admired alongside a cup of black coffee.
Mae Lovelace baked cakes and cookies and all manner of things and sold them to the restaurants in her town. She grew her own vegetables and preserved them for her family. She was the southern grandma you've always wished you'd had... always bringing you a taste of something from the kitchen, always winking and shaking her head when asked for her recipes, always asking if you got enough to eat. She was a mean card player. She did not understand vegetarians. She was an incredible cook.
Come join us in a celebration of Mae's southern appalachian cooking and hospitality channeled through her granddaughter's training and the bounty of the pacific northwest.
We cook on Mondays and Wednesdays every week, and sometimes on other days as we see fit. All services are reservation only. Please sign up for our mailing list to receive announcements and ticketing links.
