Ma’ama Tee’s Cookin & Catering is a family owned business. Although we’re small we have many working parts. The head chef is Ma’ama Tee a hospitality culinary graduate from Monroe Community College where I obtained my associates degree and safe handling certification. 


I love cooking using high quality ingredients to create wonderfully tasty recipes. Cooking is in my DNA as my mom and sister are both known as great cooks to our family and friends. My late grandparents (dads parents) Clausel and Lottie Maxwell of Greenville Alabama are the former owners of Mack’s Cafe’ for over 30 years and my uncle Clausel Maxwell, alongside his wife owns and operates Dairy freeze on river breeze in Detroit Michigan for well over 40 years.


After many years as a stylist and salon owner I have finally decided to cook my heart out. I enjoy serving people food and desserts that makes them happy. The goal here is for Ma’ama Tee’s Cookin’& Catering to become a household and worldwide name; Ma’ama Tee is what my first born grandson Tierjon named me 14 years ago and his sister Amia has followed suit. I love it and you will too.


I cater the most intimate size parties to large parties specializing mainly  in classic American and Soul Food but we’re very capable of preparing specialty dishes upon request.


Consider Ma’ama Tee’s Cookin & Catering for your next event no matter the size treat your guests to a jaw Jammin experience.


Thanks in advance
