Although Teri Sawyer has 22 successful years in food service to her credit, she started out as an x-ray technician who, as the old saying goes, couldn't even boil water. Hoping to impress the man she wanted to marry, Teri served him food cooked by her co-workers.
Dale Sawyer didn't find out that Teri couldn't cook until after their honeymoon. After going to cooking school and experimenting at home, Teri found she had a "God given" talent for cooking.
She had a catering business for eight and a half years and 13 years ago accepted the Food Directorship at Tyler's First Baptist Church. She has just published her first cookbook "Delicious By Design" and is getting rave reviews for her work.
Teri Sawyer will be autographing her cookbook at "Delicious By Design" Friday, May 11th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Tyler's Sweet Gourmet. She will also sing autographs on Saturday May 12th from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at The Potpourri House.
