Name of business: Desi’s Authentic New Orleans Recipes
Owner: Desiree Nette
My name is Desiree Nette. I am from Louisiana, I have been staying in Florida (Santa Rosa Beach) since the beginning of August, with my brother who has been a Florida resident for several years now. I have been making and selling Authentic Louisiana Dishes, specializing in Seafood Gumbo, and also making classic Red Beans and Rice and Jambalaya. I am just starting out with trying to get a business up and running. I am doing catering right now with the hope of opening a restaurant. I learned to cook from my Mother. My Mother and Father owned a seafood restaurant in Louisiana for 21 years. I think I have something special with my cooking. I never get any negative feedback. People enjoy eating my cooking.
