Barbara Tenney and Randall Jolley Cooking Demonstration at KaTom


I have been so busy that I am just now finding time to write this story about the cooking class by Barbara Tenney, my culinary hero. She was joined in the KaTom kitchen by Randall Jolley for a meal to remember. Look at what we enjoyed that evening.



Randall Jolley’s expertise is clearly strong in the grilling department. He showed us how to use one of KaTom’s best outdoor grills. I was amazed that it only uses charcoal; yet, Randall can get the temperature within 5 degrees of where he needs it.

I had never seen a Primo grill and was quite impressed.

Even better, this grill is made in America.



Not sure how I missed getting a picture of the Twice Baked Potato Casserole, but it was unbelievably good.


The Settlers Beans were actually a complete meal. I’ll make this recipe in the coming weeks.


We enjoy watching the action from the overhead screen. You won’t miss a thing.


That was really a lot of food! I was glad that my friend brought 2 to-go boxes.

The piece-de-resistance was the banana pudding. Divine!



The crowd was mainly from Morristown and Dandridge that evening. As it turns out, Randall Jolley is from Mo’town himself. And his wife, Lisa. In a ‘it is a small world’ moment, I met Lisa Jolley at the end of the event. Turns out that she was my younger sister Diane’s best friend in high school. Currently, the Jolley’s live in the same neighborhood as my other sister, Suzanne. It is certainly a small world at KaTom classes!

Always get a picture with your hero!

Barbara is busy cooking in Knoxville at the Butler and Bailey market and does cooking segments on WBIR TV. She caters and does more things than I can list here. When she comes back to KaTom Chef Supplies for a cooking demo in the future then don’t miss it. It will be the best thing about your week. It is one of my favorite ways to get out and about in Sevierville.
