Event catering

Like the Destiny's Child song, but even more delicious. 

Fernay McPherson grew up steeped in soul 

Using traditional family recipes, Minnie Bell’s menu offers up delicious home-style food, combining soulful flavors and warmth of the south. Fernay learned to cook from her great aunt Minnie and late grandmother Lillie Bell. Fernay's family arrived in San Francisco during the Great Migration as part of the relocation of more than 6 million African Americans from the rural South to cities in the North and West. They left in search of better lives and their culinary spirit travelled right along with them.

...GOOD fried chicken...Their chicken is juicy, tasty, crispy...get the corn bread and mac & cheese...they’re always friendly and accommodating...
