Oddette’s grandmother Granga made BBQ sauce during the Depression Era out of love for her children. “I am what my Grandma made me. Dishing from my kitchen and sharing the love are the two things I love the best!”
Oddette established her business in 2003. While catering and producing her famous BBQ sauce has carried her business through 15 years and counting, her true passion is cooking to “share the love.”
“My true love is preparing small, intimate dinners for 12 or less where time and money are not the object. The food, flavors, atmosphere, energy and people are the focus. This would be the ideal way for me to live out my days.” Oddette is looking over Grandmother Granga’s shoulder with Mother Ophelia nearby.
