In March 2018, Omaha said goodbye to Patricia “Big Mama” Barron. For years, Big Mama served soulful food with a level of kindness and compassion that became a greater part of her legacy than the recipes that earned her numerous greetings from The Food Network * 1. Patrick’s family knew that Omaha needed Big Mama, and so they took over. Today, the family runs Big Mama’s kitchen as well as a scholarship in Patrick’s name that offers the opportunity to attend Metro’s Culinary Arts Program.
