I, Chef Debbie was born Debbie Riddle and am a daughter to Lillian “Pearl” Nelson. Pearl was a wonderful woman, who was a chef in her own right, cooking daily for her husband and 5 children. Due to childhood health challenges I spent many days home from school, where I witnessed my mother create culinary delights for the family. During those memorable times, a passion for food was birthed, and I often wished that I could duplicate what I saw my mom doing. Well.......that desire and passion never left!
Even during a very successful 25 year career in corporate America, I longed for the chance to one day create my own tasty dishes to be enjoyed by family, friends, and beyond. That dream came true in 2009, when I began catering small and large events for churches and other organizations. Shortly after the launch of my catering business, I expanded my vision by offering personal chef services.
During this endeavor I was connected with a private client, who I still work with to this day. The positive response to the soups requested by my client ended up being much more than I could have ever imagined. I started by making the soups requested, then began experimenting with additional recipes. After hearing that there was just something about the soups that made them delectable and then being prompted to do something with the gift, I reluctantly started thinking about how I could “do something” with what was in my hands.
From these thoughts along with an embedded passion for food and cooking that was in my roots, came Pearl’s Signature Gourmet Soups. There is something so comforting about a warm bowl of soup, to be enjoyed all year round.
This is another opportunity for me to not only love people with food, but to honor my talented, loving, and gorgeous Mother.
