Episode 42:From the Bottom of the Pot with Chef Tye Hall

Food is loved universally. Each culture has different dishes that are appreciated, and well, who doesn’t love to eat? Don’t forget that cooking is an art too? Not only that, but it can also be incredibly therapeutic and life-changing. 

In this episode of the WHoly Mom Chat, Jennifer James sits down with Chef Tye Hall to discuss how Tye overcame the horrors of assault and abuse. Tye shares how her spouse, children, and intense passion for cooking have helped her overcome her background.

Philadelphia-born and raised Chef Tye Hall had had a passion for cooking since the age of 8 when she started cooking with her Nana. She didn’t start with becoming a chef. In fact, after high school, she went into the Army and served her country. After her tours, she stayed in her profession and became an LPN. It wasn’t until she lost her beloved Nana that she hung up her stethoscope, picked up a knife, and worked in the kitchen.

When asked why she will say, “Cooking saved her life.” With the loss of her Nana, PTSD set in and almost took over when she gave her Nana’s handwritten recipes to help her cope. This would start a new chapter for her and reignite her love for food. She would go back to school to earn an Associate’s Degree in pastry and culinary skills and a Bachelor’s Degree in hotel and restaurant management.

Chef Tye has a niche for international food, possibly due to her past of traveling with the Army for several years. Since she became a full-time chef, she has cooked for quite a few celebrities and cooked for the Washington Redskins while they are in Virginia for training camp. She has served our country, has been a servant in healthcare, and now both she and her husband Reggie, the co-owner of T&R Catering LLC & Common Sense Cuisine LLC, and their food truck, Hooks Lunch box, are serving up delicious comfort foods that are designed to take you to on a trip around the world.
