Deah Berry Mitchell is a corporate executive by day and freelance writer and culinary event producer by night residing in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. A double graduate of Southern Methodist University, she enjoys cooking, traveling and immersing herself into other cultures. While vacationing in 2017 Berry-Mitchell had the idea to produce a bus tour that would combine her two passions: foodways and local cultural history. Swiftly upon returning she suggested to her friend and public relations manager, Dalila Thomas, that they partner together to produce this new concept. In February 2018 they officially launched and have been producing the sold-out tours consistently since then. The pair have been featured in several media outlets such as, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, WFAA, Guidelive and numerous others. They are currently planning to expand into other test markets in the immediate future. Deah is currently finishing her second book, an untitled historical fiction novel. Pick up a copy of her first book published in early 2019, “Cornbread & Collard Greens: How West African Cuisine and Slavery Influenced Soul Food” here.
