Betty Grant

Mother of Billie Littles, Kitchen Manager at Toast! of Charleston

Betty Grant is a no-nonsense person. Ask her who raised her four children (one girl and three boys) and she will tell you she “raised half of those years with their father and half of them without him.” The motherly constant for the Pulaski, GA native was a simple but firm and loving formula. “I tried to raise them to eat right, go to bed on time, get up on time, and go to school. The most important part was going to school. I got them through high school and they did the rest on their own.”

Another component Grant felt was important to teach her children, was the importance of God. “I believe in going to church. Always give God a little bit of me. I always thought for me and the children, to remember to think of Him before you act, you may not get into trouble and make mistakes.”

Grant used to work at night and work on the house and the garden and raising her family during the days. She also used to enjoy cooking, especially baking pies and cakes, and stewing vegetables. “Now, I’m retired and can enjoy the garden I worked so hard on years ago from my window.”

A reap and sow message of sorts. It seems to have rubbed off on her children. She describes Billie as a hard-working little girl. “Like me, she works hard and stays busy.”

Mahagony Gregory – Baker at Toast!, Toast of West Ashley and Toast of Summerville

We caught up with Mahagony when she was whipping up a bunch of gorgeous pies for the entire Toast family on International Pi Day in the Cove Bar & Grille kitchen. The Art Institute of Charleston graduate and experienced (she’s been with Toast West Ashley since its opening in 2016) baker was whipping up French chocolate silk pie, brownie pie and a Mandarin orange crushed pineapple and coconut pie at the time. And, that was just for starters.

Her mother owns a restaurant in her hometown in Aiken, SC. “She loved cooking, but not baking. I helped her with the baking because I loved it,” Mahagony said with enthusiasm. She’s proud of her craft and shared the fact that she attended culinary classes in high school from 9th to 12th grade and was the only student in attendance for all three of those years.

When she’s not baking, she’s taking care of her two year-old daughter and only child, Skylar Thompson. The best part about being a mother? “When she says she loves me.  She is just starting to say that. She’s learning so much so fast. She’s like my own little thing.”

The worst part about being a mother? “Knowing she’s going to grow up. It scares me sometimes.”

Mahogany’s own mother was and is a constant source of inspiration to her. “Mom always said, you have to lead by example. My little girl copies everything I do. If Mommy does it, it’s ok for me. And, I stand by that, always.”

Here’s Mahagony with her gorgeous French chocolate silk pie. Happy Mother’s Day, Mahagony and all great mothers out there from everyone at Charleston Hospitality Group.
