Hi! I’m Jessica Murray, culinary specialist and owner of Heart & Soul Cuisine, a catering company in Lubbock, TX. There is something about the magic of cooking a southern meal and gathering people around a dinner table that completely lights my fire. What drives me toward that feeling though is far beyond the apron…

There is so much beauty in simplicity. That is why I describe my style as champagne in a jelly jar – a touch of class with my southern roots on full display. I am a faith driven wife and mother of two. Family and friend gatherings make my world go round and I’m usually the first one to raise my hand when the question of who is hosting pops up. I can’t help it, I just love my people and love to be the caretaker.

My goals are mighty – grow in my faith, stand by my man, raise my babies to be good humans, and run the best catering business in Lubbock, TX. Some days it seems daunting but as long as I have my team, family, and friends by my side I know that anything is possible. I have truly been blessed with some of God’s best and I never want to take that for granted.

At the end of each day without fail I am completely humbled. Looking back on the paths that have led me to West Texas, I can’t imagine being anywhere else. After all, how many people get to say they are living out their dreams? Running Heart & Soul Cuisine truly is an honor. Here’s the thing though – complacency has never looked good on me and it never will, so believe me when I say you haven’t seen anything yet – this spitfire is just getting started!

With All My Heart & Soul,

Jessica
