Jodi Moore and Kelly Burns have always dreamed of owning their own catering business. Growing up in the small town of Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, southern cooking was a way of life for the two girls. Their mother Tomma, a caterer herself, shared the joy of cooking with her daughters at a very early age. Using the lessons they learned in the kitchen from her, the two sisters have now turned their dream into what is today Sweetwater Cuisine.​

The name Sweetwater Cuisine originated from an old school located in the community where the girls were raised. Their great-great-great-great grandfather donated the land for the original Sweetwater School which was built in the late 1800s. The name Sweetwater was chosen because the school was located near a creek that was fed by many natural springs that actually did make the water sweet. The school quickly became the gathering place of the community. Socials and meetings were held there which, of course, meant great food!

Jodi and Kelly have incorporated this great love of food into Sweetwater’s various menus which include many family recipes that have been passed down for generations—such as their homemade rolls, meatballs, and gumbo. They hope you enjoy looking through some of their sample menus where you, too, can experience the taste of Sweetwater yourself.​ Read less

Words are not enough to describe just how amazing the food prepared by Sweetwater was at my wedding reception. EVERYTHING was absolutely delicious, people are still telling my husband, me, and our families that it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding.

I knew from our first meeting with Jodi that there was no doubt Sweetwater would be our caterer. Jodi really took the time to talk to my husband and I about the food we liked and wanted to serve, so she made our menu very personalized that included several sriracha flavored offerings and a few vegan selections. We opted for butlered hors d’ourves and food stations. Jodi also procured all of the tables, chairs, and tablecloths that were used at the reception.

Our butlered hors d’ourves included crabcakes, shrimp & grits shots, zucchini pistachio & tomato bites, and steak & potato macadamia skewers. Our food stations ranged from bbq sliders, a mac ‘n’ cheese bar with various toppings, a biscuit bar (with various types of biscuits & local jams), chicken pot pie with sweet potato crust, seared scallops (that were made to order), lamb lolli-pops, sriracha glazed meatballs, and cauliflower steaks. For dessert, Jodi was able to source macarons, miniature pies (pumpkin, pecan, and mixed berry cobbler), cake pops, and bonbons with edible glitter! And if that wasn’t enough, Jodi prepared warm chocolate chip cookies served atop shot glasses of milk and mini hot-dogs for late night snacks. We were able to try several of the dishes we selected prior to the wedding, and there was no doubt we had made the right choice.

Jodi and her team were absolute professionals, I didn’t have to worry about a thing during the reception. Jodi was easy to work with, took the time to listen to what we wanted, and made sure we got to eat at our own reception by preparing plates to eat in a private room. Sweetwater did an outstanding job helping to make our reception a memorable one!

Sweetwater catered my wedding at Moca in Virginia Beach this past weekend and everything was amazing! The staff was hands down the most attentive and professional people I could have ever asked for! From the beginning Jodi was amazing, she was quick to respond to questions, met with us and helped us with our menu! The tasting was wonderful, it really helps to see what other people are thinking about and its nice to taste other options that are available! Our wedding day went off without any issues! Maria and her team were really easy to work with! Annie kept our plates full and our drinks cold the entire night, the bartenders were great and really every single staff member was so polite and extremely helpful! The FOOD was amazing! We had guests go up multiple times to our stations! The pecan chicken and gourmet mash potatoes were the biggest talk of the night! Seriously delicious!!! Couldn't have asked for anything better! If you LOVE southern style food like we do, I would highly recommend Sweetwater!

Sweetwater was fantastic! The food was without a doubt delicious, the service was impeccable, and their personal touches were uniquely creative and classic. Maria helped with our wedding and she took such great care of us. She is passionate about her company and makes a point to get all the details just right for you and your event. She even took the time to play dress up with a bridesmaid and I- we dressed up table settings and linens a dozen times in one afternoon so that I could see the different chair + linnen + china combinations. Maria did this at no additional cost... that spoke very highly of the level of dedication and customer care that they provide.
On the day of our wedding... there was a server who periodically checked to see that my husband and I had enough to eat and if we needed anything. Sweetwater sent us home with a tray of food and a few slices of cake and managed to get it to our limo so we didn't have to worry about a thing. Sweetwater takes great care of their clients and I would strongly recommend their services for events of any size.

Sweetwater Cuisine is a very special catering company in that they not only can provide just about any type of food desired but they can also design wonderful ways of displaying food so that the food is an event in itself. At my daughter's wedding which was held at our home, they were able to incorporate many of my antique furniture pieces as serving displays on the lawn. Sweetwater provided foods reflecting the diverse places that my daughter and son-in-law have lived, including food especially prepared with a french canadien flair for the groom's family. We began with Virginia crab beignets and California fish tacos amongst the appetizers served with an alcoholic version of their signature sweetwater. Then Canadian salmon and midwest petite filet with Michigan summer salad. All made fresh on site. The desert stations included family pie recipes as well as site made nitrogen ice cream and Quebec maple syrup candy. A pizza oven was used for individual pizzas at the afterparty where canadian poutine was also served. Who else could have grilled, baked, fried, made pizza, ice cream, and candy all freshly made on site? And also set up an amazing wine tasting bar as an added activity? Sweetwater Cuisine! I have already booked another event with them for early 2016!

Sweetwater Cuisine could not have been more helpful planning our wedding. The food was delicious and the customer service was exemplary. They went out of their way to help us plan the perfect champagne toast, bar setup and table arrangements. During the wedding they were extremely attentive, regularly serving us food and drinks and checking on our every need.

I still smile when I reflect on our daughter's wedding reception. Jodi, Maria and the entire staff at Sweetwater Cuisine did an AMAZING job. Thank you to each of you. The event was perfectly delicious and absolutely gorgeous. It was breathtaking to walk into the reception and to view the tables for the first time. The beautiful presentation of the stations, especially the ice sculpture at the seafood station as well as the pizza and dessert stations, exceeded our expectations. You are not only experts at your profession, you are also the friendliest, kindest and most accommodating people we have ever met. The bride and groom loved the special personal attention they received all evening and our guests continue to rave about the friendly staff and delicious cuisine. We are Fans for Life with Grateful Hearts, Barbara and Gene Gerloff

Jodi and her team are the BEST there is. Period. We held our wedding not local to us or to Jodi and her team, but we knew that we had to have her amazing food but more importantly HER and her team with us on the most important day of our lives! Jodi and every member of her staff went ABOVE and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. From dealing with terrible weather to a venue that didn't have a traditional kitchen for prep, they handled everything and made everything run so smoothly. And of course, the food was DIVINE. We had so many guests say it was the best wedding food they had ever ever had - and to top it off, not only was it incredible, but it was displayed to perfection thanks to Jodi's creative eye. Sweetwater is the best best BEST! :)
