Born and raised in Louisiana
About usLoretta’s affection for cooking can be traced all the way back to an original Easy Bake Oven. Growing up in a family of 13 children, she was consistently surrounded by great food being prepared for dinners and large family gatherings. Eventually she outgrew her Easy Bake Oven and began helping out in the kitchen. From there her love and knowledge of cooking blossomed. Ultimately her knack for the culinary arts grew into a full blown passion.
In 1998 she and her husband/high school sweetheart, David moved to Asheville and opened Loretta's. Since then it has become a downtown staple serving delicious food to locals and tourists alike.
