After over 30 years of building a brand that represents southern cooking, home grown hospitality and mentoring of young people, Vera Stewart has taken her journey back to her roots: The Classroom.
The VeryVera Show, currently in its 5th Season, showcases Vera’s natural teaching ability with prompts that remind us to use our manners and modern suggestions to translate a new twist to your grandmother’s favorite recipes. Her early years as a Home Economics teacher make her a natural personality in front of the camera as well as her viewing audience. Her years in catering and mail order give her the expertise to advise you on presentation, service and delivery of most any dish you prepare. Vera’s circle of friends in the industry brings first-class talent and recognition to the screen with noted guests like Virginia Willis, Nathalie Dupree, Rebecca Lang and The Lee Brothers. The chemistry in the kitchen between Vera and her friends make for a fun-filled thirty-minute show and great recipes that are shared during the broadcast and on her website. The Season is made up of 32 varied shows, exceptional guests, and diversity in food preparation. Vera’s ability to showcase her friendly personality, make you feel comfortable about entertaining, and encourage you to give some time to the younger generation is endearing.
While not on the set, Vera still works on special events, her cookbook, and does several community benefit programs in her Augusta, Georgia area. Her VeryVera School Saturday Cooking Class program and Summer Camp series is entering its 14th year and is being introduced to franchise in 2017. The regional syndication of the show puts Vera in areas across the Southeast as she promotes her message and her talent.
