BIO:
The Rev. Elder Evangelist Detrick Senáy Gales was born in Washington, D.C. at the Columbia Hospital for Women @ 9:18am on Feb 15, 1968 to the late John Asbury Gales (Born in Rixeyville, VA) (1934-2000) and Nellie Elizabeth Antrum Brock Gales affectionately called "Snoot" born in Society Hill, Darlington County, South Carolina (1933). Throughout Rev. Gales life he has been affectionately known by countless nicknames (i.e. "DD", "Treble", "D.Senay" "Trick-D" "Scooby", "BiggSlim" "Revy Rev" "Pastor" "Bishop" "ArchBishop"). Baking since early childhood as a young lad, D. Senáy's very first culinary experience in the kitchen was with his paternal grandma - Annie Bernice Tyler Anderson Gales(1904-1998), affectionately called "Mama Bee". It was her simple 1-2-3 ingredient recipe for Country Fried Apples that she created for his grandpa - William Mell Gales, Sr.(1906-1980), affectionately called "Daddy Dick", that started this Culinary journey. When his mother would drop him off, for countless summers (in Amissville, VA deep South) with Mama Bee and Daddy Dick, D. Senáy (or D.D. as she called him) could be seen creating elaborate designs and crop circles in the grassy field with Daddy Dick's riding lawn mower (an acre at a time), which in every instance, would ultimately frustrate his granddaddy. Needless to say, Daddy Dick would always run after him in his big ole crop duster hat and blue jean over-alls waving his arms like a mad man, trying to stop him in the height of his creative conquests. Mama Bee would stand in the kitchen window and laugh herself to tears, looking out over the field at the show of "You can't catch me!" "Nanny, Nanny, Boo-Boo". Of course - Daddy Dick banished him to the inside of the house (and into the kitchen with Mama Bee) after Daddy Dick caught him, he would re-cut the acreage himself.

Years later, D. Senáy asked Mama Bee to show him how to make those delicious Country Fried Apples. After returning home from countless summers, when his mother (Nellie Elizabeth ANtrum Brock Gales) was away from the house, he would try not to burn down the kitchen, in a heroic attempt to duplicate this culinary delicacy. He emulated everything Mama Bee did, including "SINGING" while cooking and listening to James Cleveland and Shirley Caesar. Little did he realize, that this gift of Culinary Arts would be deeply rooted inside him.

His first experience with tasting a Sweet Potato-Type Pie was from a family friend - Daddy Bill (His Mother's Friend). One Bite - Changed His Life! Determined to make the World's Finest Yam Pie, years of trial and error has resulted in Masterpieces of Exceptional Culinary Expectations using only the World's Finest Ingredients.

Since 1986, D. Senáy started baking Homemade Pies out of Yams instead of Sweet Potatoes. After years of research, he concluded that the world has yet to unveil the Finest Gourmet Yammy (Yam) Pie made from scratch. Millions of Sweet Potato Pies are made each Holiday Season, but there is only ONE Great Yammy Pie!! And the difference between Yams and Sweet Potatoes is like Hershey's to GODIVA.

During his early years, being raised in the church, he would often hear the church mother's say - "If you can make good Candied-Yams, you'll make an excellent pie". Always striving for perfection, he discovered that if you take a good old-fashioned Country Recipe, incorporate the world's finest quality of all-natural organic gourmet ingredients, ANY pie can be transformed from just good to absolutely phenomenal.

Finally, after years of encouragement from countless people, friends, family and co-workers, the time has come to share this Ultimate Culinary Experience. Our distinguished service is based on the belief that Home-made Cuisine is still ultimately ~ the Finest Cuisine.
