Chef Tamearra Dyson has been creating her innovative Vegan Creole Cuisine cousin since the age of 18. Originally from the Bay Area, she is highly influenced by her Louisiana roots.
Only one prerequirement away from nursing school, Chef Dyson decided to risk it all to pursue her dream in the culinary industry.
One of Tamearra’s greatest achievements was open Souley Vegan Restaurant as a single mother, without capital or partnerships, then growing that business into a nationally known and internationally recognized brand.
Now after over 9 years in business and many accolades under her belt including being voted one of the Top 10 soul food restaurants in the country by USA TODAY,
Featured on Triple D on the Food Network, Food Rush with Ryan Scott on the Live Well Network and Voted Best Vegan Restaurant and Best Soul Food Restaurant over several years, Tamearra continues to expand as she travels to cater celebrity events and is currently working on opening more locations. In addition to donating generously to several local organizations annually, Chef Dyson also takes time to mentor young adults in the community.
Tamearra believes that her story can be an inspiration to many and is currently finishing up her book “Butterfly Kisses” which will be a combination of recipes centered around her life’s journey and is scheduled to be on shelves early 2019.
