Little About Me

Peckish Wisdom...what a bizarre name, right?  At it's core, it's a constant hunger for knowledge.  And let's face it, I'm constantly hungry...  But also it's discovering where and when my passion and talent emerged.  For that, let's take a walk back in time.  I'm Athena, the cook/chef/chick in the kitchen.  I was raised in a farming community in the heartland of our country.  My love of soul-wrenching food comes from the strong women and men in my family and community, especially my mother, father, and grandmother.  Both sides of my family are or were farmers and my parents practiced husbandry and owned restaurants.  I would teeter at the side of my mother and grandmother taking in their culinary magic and listening to the stories and wisdom.  My dad would take me on trips to get fish creating these lucid memories that will live forever.  On lovely mismatched plates, our family's legacy would come to life.  The fresh, farmed food would bring together family and passion.  This is the nostalgia on which Peckish Wisdom is founded.

Integrity is the name of our game - integrity in product, integrity in process.  We are firm believers that wholesome food begets good health.  Majority of our shopping is through local purveyors.  You can have the peace of mind that you are feeding yourself and your family pure ingredients, energizing the local economy, and helping to ensure the future of the integrity of our community foods.  

My culinary journey started in my parent's restaurants that carried over into adulthood catering on the East Coast, West Coast, and even down in Texas come by way of culinary school.  I've enjoyed decades of creating comforting flavors with nurturing fixings to make happy bodies and happy souls.  My style?  Comfort flavors with expert execution.
