JOAN AND SHANNON FOUNDED INGLE EATS WITH ONE GOAL IN MIND: TO SEND FAMILIES BACK TO THE DINNER TABLE TO CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER OVER DELICIOUS, CREATIVE MEALS.
Motivated by the empty nests they saw just around the corner, these two mothers and longtime friends came together to fill their time with their shared passion for cooking and eating scrumptious food.
Shannon grew up in New Orleans eating in local dives and fine restaurants, experiencing all the culinary treasures for which her hometown is famous. She quickly learned that every meal is an adventure, where lunch is talked about at breakfast and dinner is planned at lunch. Joan, on the other hand, is a small town girl from Houma where her family shared a deep love of cooking and entertaining. With an emphasis on healthy eating, homegrown ingredients and freshly caught seafood, Joan's family never failed to turn a meal into an event. Side by side, Joan and Shannon combine their South Louisiana upbringings and culinary heritage to craft the meals of Ingle Eats.
As mothers and members of large families, Joan and Shannon understand how difficult it can be to have a home-cooked meal on the table come dinnertime. By removing much of the food preparation from the equation, Ingle Eats offers a hassle-free way for families to spend time together around the dinner table eating fresh, inventive meals.
