About the Author
Charita Jones (endearingly known as Momma Cherri) shot to national stardom when she appeared on Gordon Ramsay's award-winning television programme 'Kitchen Nightmares' - he loved her, he loved her food, he loved her restaurant, but he hated the way she ran her business. In two short weeks he turned her business around, giving her the brilliantly simple idea of 'Soul in a Bowl' and encouraging her to come front of house to 'strut her stuff'. From that moment on her world was completely turned around. Now the owner of one of the most successful restaurants in Brighton and transplanted to bigger premises to cater for the relentless demand for tables, she has become a genuine 'celebrity chef'. She makes regular appearances on ITV's Saturday Cooks with Antony Worrall Thompson, is the guest chef on ITV's This Morning, BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour, BBC Good Food Live as well as making frequent appearances in the national press. She held her own hugely successful Gospel Brunch during the 4 weeks of the Edinburgh Festival and recently won the 'Sussex Entrepreneur of the Year' Award. She has travelled a long road in a very short time and with the publication of her first book, Momma Cherri's Soul in a Bowl, her future as one of the nation's best-loved celebrity chefs looks assured. Born in Philadelphia in the '50's, Charita's early career was in music, and soul music in particular. Travelling to London in the late '70s to appear in a West-End show, she fell in love with the country and its people and decided to settle. She formed the all-girl group The Street Angels (she claims the group to be a black forerunner of the Spice Girls!) and enjoyed a Top-30 hit in1982. Finding the music business a fickle partner she and her husband decided to move to Brighton in 2001 to open a soul food restaurant - the first in the country. Though the food was hugely popular and the customers enthusiastic her restaurant business skills left a lot to be desired - and so entered Gordon Ramsay and the beginning of a meteoric rise to fame and fortune.
