Delicious authentic southern cuisine. Chef Vida is the best. I would not hesitate to contact her for your next event. Food is gooooooood!

I absolutely love her cooking. It's prepared with love, the way you cook for your family and here she gives that and spread that around to all of the people that she serves. My son just loves his "Aunt Vida's wings" gumbo, and anything else she serves up. I think I'd eat a paper bag if she cooked it. That girl can "burn"......

All the food prepared for my daughter’s baby shower by Jewell’s “Ms Vida” was delicious. From the seafood gumbo, the jambalaya and all the other dishes were tasty. Will definitely be a repeat customer !

Jewell’s Gumbo is a gift from Heaven! If you have or haven’t tried it you are missing out on some food for the soul!! I have known Vida for years and her Gumbo is the best!!! Don’t forget to get your order in so you too can share a little piece of heaven!!

Vida has the best Gumbo I have ever eaten in my entire life. She also cooks so many other good dishes. I am not saying this because she is my wife, I really mean it. I always wanted a "Southern Girl"and I got one that can cook!


The food was excellent and seasoned just right! Loved it

Vicki Howze

What an amazing evening! You can never go wrong with cold weather, belly-warming Gumbo, live music and an Awesome DJ! Ms. Vida's cooking was on point and the Sweet Potato Pie and Bread Pudding didn't dissappoint! I am highly recommending her service for all you party/catering needs! Hope to see you down the road soon, Ms. Vida!

I tagged along with some friends to this event. I could not believe the number of people maybe 600+ that stood in the cold for food, drinks and that DJ! Staybridge Suites has a nice outdoor area. Too bad it was cold but apparently it was not an issue by the crowd. We all enjoyed the sampling of food and both live bands. This was a really nice event and I am looking forward to it next year.

I've employed Jewels Jumbo & More Catering Services for every meaningful occasion I've had since Mrs. Vida Floyd rolled her wears. In fact, I was a fan even before Jewells began commercial operations. You shouldn't be in this business if you don't love and understand how to deliver great food, employ great support, excel in presentation, render excellent hospitality and keep people wanting to come back for more. Just as she did when she hosted events herself, Vida checks all of the boxes. And my guests feel the same. I know this to be true because I'm repeating the praise that they have shared with me. When asked where did she study to achieve this great execution, Vida replied, I approach this business by treating people the way I would want to be treated if I was the customer. Wouldn't it be nice if all service providers adopted this approach?

Great food prepared by the amazing Chef Vida! Highly recommend her New Orleans cuisine. Her charm and winning personality were a bonus! My guests loved both her and her food. I heard “this is the best seafood gumbo I ever had” uttered all evening! What a wonderful evening as she set up the meal, took care of the guests and cleaned up and I was able to enjoy my guests!!

Amazing. Food made fresh. Everything tasted great. Like a gourmet restaurant in our office.

Met Chef Vida at a book signing event and fell in love with her presentation and her beautiful personality. Took a few cards and the opportunity came around to host a surprise party for our fathers 70th Birthday and immediately Chef Vida came to mind. Made the call and let me tell you she did not disappoint. Her famous Seafood Gumbo, Jambalaya, Fried Fish/Shrimp & Oysters Tower, Smoked Chicken, and Pasta Salad had my guest prepared to camp out all night, with many returning the next day with newly purchased Tupperware “just to help me out”. My husband and I had to chase them away with a stick (we are selfish like that). Chef Vida is now an honorary family member, and will remain on speed dail—I can’t wait until our next event.
