Vera vs. Flay

Vera Stewart has been a long time friend of my family's, and is quite the chef, business woman, and expert on southern etiquette. Quite a few years back, she started her own business - VeryVera, consisting of mail-order cakes, catering, and even a little cafe. She's been featured in O Magazine, InStyle Magazine, The New York Times, and various other publications. And to think, she's right out of lil' ole Augusta, GA!

Even more special is the fact that she catered the weddings of both my sister and Tee and Jamie and I. [When I say catered, I really mean she was pretty much the wedding planner. Life saver!] I am pretty sure I received almost as many compliments about the food (a-mazing) as I did any other aspect of that special day.

Tonight, Vera will be featured on Throwdown with Bobby Flay! Tune in to The Food Network at 9pm EST tonight, and check out Vera and Bobby putting her super yummy carrot cake to the test!
