Expressions from the Owner & Chef
As Owner and Chef, I am committed to continuing my family's legacy by preparing some of the most savory and well presented dishes imaginable. Recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation have been transformed into my very own restaurant quality recreations. My menu features Southern inspired comfort foods traditionally referred to as "Soul Food" and feature some of my favorite specialties like Gumbo, Cajun Pasta Alfredo, Louisiana Hot Wings, Red Beans n' Rice and a host of other entrees, sides, appetizers and platters. Pull up to the pop-up and have a taste from my exclusive menu available on select weekends by pre-order.
PERSONAL CHEF SERVICES: This service gives my clients the option of having restaurant quality dishes delivered or picked up to be enjoyed at home. I will be happy to customize recipes to meet the needs of my increasingly diverse clientele by offering pork-free and vegan/ vegetarian meal options upon request. Additionally, clients with food restrictions, food allergies or sensitive palettes are welcomed to ask for substitions and exclusions if needed. My goal is to satisfy the needs of my clients and provide the best service possible.
CATERING: 40 Aces Soul Kitchen offers the most diverse and cost-effective catering menus and services. Whether casual or formal, large or small, catering and event services can be customized to include chafing dishes, table linens, decor and service staff as needed. Menu offerings are based on seasonality and availability of quality goods and therefore, menu offerings are often rotated regularly.
Serving my community brings me unmeasurable joy. My hope and prayer is that the joy and love I have put into my business will be experienced and appreciated by your mind, body and soul.
Thank you in advance for your love, support and positive vibes.
