Shantita and Reginald Odom, birthed Cooking With the Odoms Catering Service, in 2012. Self-taught in the culinary arts, Shantita began cooking at an early age. She learned the fundamentals from her Grandmother, nurturing Shantita’s and Reggie’s love for seafood and southern foods. Shantita, a Greenville, MS native, cooks with the love and soul that is inherent of the Delta. Reginald, a native of Deland Fl , met Shantita while attending Mississippi State University. It did not take long for him to realize that he and Shan not only shared a love for each other, but a passion for bold flavors and cooking. Married in 2012, they published their very first cookbook, “Newlywed Cooking.” Over the years they have proved themselves as a force in the culinary world, creating meals for friends and family and becoming known for their innovative take on southern favorites.
For the past few years, the Odoms have provided delicious and unique dining experiences for people near and far. They developed a reputation among those who have been invited to sample their dishes, providing quality and great tasting food for all occasions. They regularly cater events such as: Office Parties, Birthday and Private Parties, Sporting events, Fund Raisers, Personal Chef Services, intimate gatherings and more.
Now, Shantita and Reggie have broadened their horizons, birthing their first physical establishment, WTF@ Restaurant, located in Starkville MS— a gourmet, take-out, dining experience, that is sure to fancy your taste buds and be a delight you will not forget.
