Despite having parents whose lives revolved around stirring, mixing and seasoning for the masses, (My mother was a home economics teacher, and my father was a cook in the U.S. Marine Corp) I never had the desire to cook anything until my final tour of duty for the U.S. Air Force in Newbury, England.  In contrast to my identical twin brother Calvin’s natural abilities in the kitchen, I was a slow enthusiast—so slow that the only meal I knew how to prepare once back in the States was spaghetti.

Over the course of time.... life happened and food gradually shifted from being a basic need, to transforming my life into one of joy and purpose as a formidable caterer in Atlanta’s hot hospitality scene. My company, Occasional Occasions by Carlton, boasts a who’s who of celebrity and corporate giant clients due to our innovative cuisine, dramatic presentations and customer service quintessential of timeless Southern hospitality.  Visit us at www.occasionaloccasions.net and see how we can make your "Occasional Occasion" a most memorable one.

    This was a delicious meal. The portion was smaller than expected but very flavorful. The amount of chicken in this meal was quite small. Overall a very good entree that I would gladly order again. Very satisfied.

    I am always skeptical of microwaving fish but somehow this chef made something so delicious that the microwave couldn’t destroy it . I would order this every week if I could. It’s quick, delicious and healthy.

    I ordered the vegan version and it was wonderful. Very flavorful. I am only giving 4 stars because there was way to much oil in this dish. I will order again but will request light on the oil.

    The chicken was perfectly cooked. The reheat instructions were spot on. The peppers, onions and feta were a delicious compliment to the chicken. We’ll definitely be ordering this one again. Even my kids who are picky eaters devoured this dish!
