Caddy’s Cuisine and Catering
Brenda Poe is a new kid on the block in Kingsport. Poe’s mom started her off in the Restaurant business in the late 70’s – Since her passing it has become Brenda’s passion to renew her legacy by preparing some of her best home-cooked recipes for everyone to enjoy. Brenda spent most of her career in Corporate America- and every day was bringing someone something to eat. She was and still am, always cooking, for someone.
For as long as she can remember her Mother was always doing what she loved the most... Cooking for others. Her recipes (now Brenda’s) date as far back as the late 1920's as they were passed on from her own Mother and include dishes prepared in some of the finest dining establishments like the "Waldorf Astoria" where she worked as a young woman growing up in NY and later evolved to include the beloved Southern favorites she specialized here in the Hills of TN.
Brenda has always had the dream to continue to share her legacy- and her talents with as much joy as she had doing exactly that during her lifetime.
“Downtown Kingsport is growing and it’s exciting to be a part of that growth. I grew up in Church Hill – coming to Kingsport was a “treat” for me as a young girl. I thought it was a big place even then”, says Brenda about her new location in downtown Kingsport. Since Brenda enjoys being so involved with her company by either being in the kitchen cooking or being with her customers, time is always the biggest issue. You will finder her in the wee hours of the morning or late night planning those new menu items for Spring and Summer.
