Elbert and his granddaughter, Adrionah
Elbert Mackey is an avid cook who has had a passion for food since his grandmother stood him on a kitchen chair to stir cake batter at the tender age of nine. He recalls with warmth the time spent with his grandmother cooking and the tasty reward of licking the bowl after the hard work of preparation. His passion for food and family stirred him to preserve recipes and memories that were in danger of being lost. Dubbed the “Tea Cake Curator” he has dazzled family, friends and judges with his award winning tasty Tea Cake creations. Elbert Mackey lives in Austin, Texas where he is the owner of a medical equipment repair business.
