About the Cook

My inspiration comes from my grandmother Lula Gammage who owned Lula’s Place; the first Black owned business in Jackson Michigan; in 1975. As far back as I remember she strove to serve excellent and heartful soul food to her guest. Growing up, as a young girl, I knew I wanted to imitate my grandmother’s footsteps and bring excellent food to the tables of others.

 

With the support of my husband Anthony, I bring you superb delights. He has inspired me to be the best I can be!

 

I have tried and tested many recipes only to bring the best to all of you! It is my desire you will take delight in the experience of EliTon’s great food and continue to allow us to serve your events in the future!

My Inspirational Quote

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
