The chefs at Sweet Tea's Restaurant and Catering know that southern-style cuisine goes beyond collard greens and grits. Every day, they use high-quality ingredients to craft soups, salad dressings, and sauces from scratch, including the creamy white-pepper gravy that smothers mounds of housemade mashed potatoes and country-fried chicken or steak. Hand-battered shrimp are cradled inside po’ boys with made-from-scratch tartar sauce, while a homemade barbecue-ranch dressing tops offerings including the texas brisket and potato hush puppies.

The catering specialists, who catered for the contestants and crew of The Bachelorette when the show filmed in Charlotte, can arrange for many of the menu options to be created for parties, meetings, or jury-duty reunions. A complimentary jug of sweet or un-sweet tea accompanies all catering orders.

Personal chef, caterer, teacher?there's little Chef Barry Francois doesn't do when it comes to food. He helps clients save time or plan for special occasions with custom catering that ranges from elegant brunch dishes to casual comfort food to fine-dining-style plates. In between preparing savory meals, the chef transforms his kitchen into a classroom. Those who feel utterly lost can enroll in the beginners' class, where they'll learn basic knife skills, craft sauces and marinades, and receive a comprehensive review of fresh herbs, including which ones can flush evil spirits from their garbage disposal. More experienced students who are curious about niche cooking styles may find inspiration during the Grilling and Entertaining class, which features demos on light summer sides and grilled meats, veggies, and desserts.
