Built with

Love

The Sutton for the Soul story begins with Tracey Sutton, a devoted chef who loved making people melt over her cooking. There just wouldn't be a "Soul" in Sutton for the Soul without the best chef known in such a tasteful industry. Tracey Sutton most certainly knew her way around a kitchen and also had her own catering business "Tracee's Kitchen." She passed her beloved gift down to her children. She was a woman who cooked with soul, and most importantly, love.

 

Now her daughter De'Ja has taken over the reins and has continued her mothers legacy not only through grace but also with certainty that you'd be back for more. De'Ja is winning the hearts of locals by her cooking, one dish at a time.

 

Meet The Chef

Chef De'Ja Vania Sutton

 

Raised in Toms River NJ, De'Ja always knew her way around a kitchen. From preparing hot meals, to giving back to the community since the age of 5 with her late mother Tracey Sutton, De'Ja always had a knack for cooking. De'Ja soon began catering from her home. She lives and breaths the soul into the food she creates. Every ounce, spice, stir, and slice is made from the desires to provide the ultimate experience similar to the Sunday dinner we all know and love from our childhood memories. The values she learned are based on love, family, and tradition. Three things you can taste with every bite. S4TS LLC was designed so that De'Ja can open up a restaurant where families can come share that Sunday dinner feeling that we all yearn and love. We invite you to be a part of our family tradition.
