In the 25 years since Alisa Barry founded her award-winning artisan food company, Oprah has twice named Bella Cucina one of her Favorite Things. Barry remains owner and CEO, but her business card reads “creative director” because creating is what energizes her. She is at once entrepreneurial, expressive, and adventurous.
Commentary: Why Oprah’s appearances with Stacey Abrams resonated so loudly—especially with Georgia women
Publications as geographically and ideologically diverse as the Guardian, Fox News, Variety, the Hill, and others ran stories or segments about Oprah Winfrey’s campaign appearances with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Yet regardless of the depth of coverage, the two events held in auditoriums in the Atlanta suburbs likely impacted the local crowds in a much deeper way than what could be conveyed to national viewers.

After a long day spent introducing Atlantans to her "O You!" tour/brandwashing campaign last weekend with her devoted friends/employees at the Georgia World Congress Center downtown, Oprah Winfrey must have been positively famished. Winfrey was spotted breezing through the front doors of the Intercontinental hotel Saturday night with OWN TV buds Gayle King and Nate Berkus as they congratulated the talk show queen's former personal chef Art Smith at his brand-new namesake restaurant Southern Art (we hear Oprah openly avoided the usual sneaky celeb backdoor entrance and exit approach and had only one member of her security team with her). FOO [Friend of Oprah] and Atlanta film and television studio mogul Tyler Perry later joined Winfrey and King for a private dinner around 9 p.m. at Canoe.

King, meanwhile, sampled the kitchen's African squash soup and artisan cheese salad.
