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 6th 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.
While not on the set, Vera still works on special events, her cookbook (due out in 2018), and does several community benefit programs in her Augusta, Georgia area. Her VeryVera Cooking Camp is entering its 15th year and was introduced to franchise in 2017 with locations in Georgia and South Carolina. The regional syndication of the show puts Vera in areas across the East as she promotes her message and her talent.
