Having prepared exquisite southern meals for celebrities, doctors, and many other influential persons of Atlanta, Coretta Lott is prepared to take this market over with her distinctive down-home cooking.
From the state of New Hampshire to the suburbs of Georgia, this hip fresh self taught cook and owner of Sistah Bell’s Food and Catering has made a name for herself as cooking “just like Grandma made it”.
Known for her familiar southern comfort food in the kitchen, Lott birthed Sistah Bell’s Food and Catering in October of 2009. Most recently she has added founder to her name establishing the nonprofit Sistah Bell’s Hand in Hands, whose benevolent efforts expand much further than feeding the homeless of metro Atlanta. She takes her profession to the streets at the end of every month serving nourishing meals, clothes, and toiletries.
In both roles as owner and founder, Lott oversees all food preparations, catering and special events. One of her tasks in Smyrna, GA was to prepare a dinner for the cast of Kandi Koated Nights which included Kandi Burrus costar of Real Housewives of Atlanta, DJ Aone, Nikki Nicole, and Corey Blackwell an ambitious challenge for any cook Lott surpassed all expectations when she prepared an outstanding meal.
"““The food is sooooo good……, this food is REALLY good." Kandi Burruss
“"Girl tell yo Grandma she got down!”" Nikki Nicole they say as they eat.
Since that event, there is a buzz in Atlanta amazed with her exclusive culinary talent.
As a child to a single mother, Lott found her love of cooking while taking care of her younger siblings as her mom worked three jobs. She would also watch her best friend’s mom, army housewife for over 30 years; cook her native Louisiana Cajun cuisine.
"I had to let others know what great catering she offered for my Joy of Connecting event. Her vegetarian specialty - mac and cheese - was devoured. Talk about a delicious dish. As to the red velvet cupcakes - no one could stop at just one!”" says Bonnie Ross Parker CEO and Founder of The Joy of Connecting.
Throughout her 10-year career in all areas of hospitality, Lott has worked in a variety of fine dining establishments including menus featuring Asian, French and traditional American. She has cooked for intimate to very large groups – in the hundreds – honoring political public figures and community leaders.
In the city of Hotlanta true southern down home places do still exist but they are thinning out. Georgia has not been known for a cuisine distinctive to itself like its neighbors Louisiana, North Carolina and Texas, now with a new young cook at the wheel that reputation may change. According to Lott, she likes to use the same ingredients her grandmother used; she doesn’t like to cut corners to make something cost effective or “healthy”, although she does prepare a diabetes version to all her menu selections. “
"My family and friends are ready to take this journey to the top with me. I’m especially excited about introducing a hint of my cooking expertise to the active social scene in the cities across the nation." said Lott. “"Clients will find that every delicious bite incorporates savory southern cooking practices as well as a few upscale culinary traditions I picked up along the way.”"
