​​​The Story of Allie Pearl Rhodes-Kincaid


My Grandmother (I called her Grams), Allie Pearl Kincaid was forever in the kitchen baking and cooking from scratch.  If she wasn’t cooking for her family, it was for the church or someone in the community in mourning.  I’ve traveled all over and no one made me feel the love and dedication to family the way I do when we were all gathered around Grams’ dining room table twenty deep.

 Each year, Grams planted a 1/2 acre garden full of sweet corn, green beans, purple hulls, tomatoes, onions, radishes, carrots, okra, cabbage, mustard, turnip and collard greens.  In the Fall she prepared her storage area to play host to jars of stewed tomatoes and pre-cooked green beans and bottles of cha-cha, grape jellies and pear preserves.  There was never enough room in the two full size deep freezers for all the containers of greens, black-eyed peas and fried sweet corn.  I am blessed to have had her around long enough for my
children and grandchildren to see and share in our rich heritage.

Grams' soul left this earth in 2014 at the young age of 91 and I miss her everyday, but ever so grateful for the time that I had with her. Our monarch is gone but her legacy continues to represent her and all the ways she touched people through food.  She was a Foodie before there was such a thing.  As you can see in the pictures, she was with us during the NFL Super Bowl Tailgate Party in 2008 but when we were invited back in 2015 she was well represented by her daughter; Cynthia Kincaid-Harrington.

 Allie Pearl’s Southern Cuisine is our gift to YOU, our customers. 

We invite you to experience just a taste of the love Grams brought to our table everyday.
