amela D. Jones was born and raised in Cross, South Carolina a little town 30 miles outside of the Gullah Region in Charleston, S.C. Pamela has always had a love for cooking since childhood. Being the oldest of four girls and having two working parents, she was held responsible for preparing meals for her 3 younger sisters.
After graduating from Morris College where she received her B.S. in Business Administration, she moved to Atlanta, GA where she has lived for the past 24 years. Pamela’s love for cooking has stayed with her as she always hosted Sunday dinners at house. After much encouragement from family and friends Pamela decided to start her own catering business and thus Taste of Satira was born. Her catering business offers boutique catering services, along with weekly meal preparation and basic cooking skills. She named her business after her great-grandmother Satira Gethers. Pamela remembers watching her great-grandmother in kitchen as a little girl teaching her 8 aunts how to prepare Gullah cuisine.
Pamela loves to explore all different kinds of cuisines but she always goes back to her roots of Gullah Geechee cuisine. Preparing the food that her grand mother & great-grandmother taught her and her daughters, always reminds her of family and how much her family enjoyed preparing and sharing meals together. Pamela has adopted her great-grandmother’s mantra “Let me love you with my Food!”
