Narvell Patton is a caterer and owner of Catering by Narvell. Food plays an important role in the African American culture. Taught to cook by her mother at the age of 7, Patton developed a love for cooking that served as a means of taking care of her family, but became a platform to share her food with people from all walks of life. One of 5 children of sharecroppers Bernie and Georgia Allen, Patton often cooked meals for her family while her parents worked in the fields. In 1998, the opportunity presented itself to start her own catering business. With the help and encouragement of her daughter and husband, she became a licensed caterer and opened Catering by Narvell. She, along with her staff, have cooked for a plethora of people including astronauts, governors, actors and renowned musicians. She caters corporate events, private parties, weddings, lunches and cocktail parties. Although she can cook a wide range of foods, Southern comfort food is her specialty.
