Eat Boutique is owned and managed by Maggie Battista. She started Eat Boutique as a blog in 2007, and sold out of her first gift box of small batch independent food in 2009. With continued hard work and features in places like The Wall Street Journal, Gilt Taste, and 101 Cookbooks, Maggie continues to offer unique and delicious handmade food in monthly tasting subscriptions and seasonal gift boxes for food fans and home cooks.
Fostering vibrant real world communities around food, Maggie also hosts Eat Boutique Markets, where she spotlights cookbook authors and food and drink makers. Maggie is a community evangelist with more than 15 years of Web community building and outreach experience, connecting millions via sites like Lycos, Tripod, TripAdvisor and Nokia. She’s written for Time Out New York, Spencer Magazine and The Hip Paris Blog, and created retail experiences for the largest floral and event design company in New England.
Maggie regularly travels far distances to speak at conferences and to find the next great chef, farmer, food maker or host. You can follow her worldwide – and homemade – gastronomic adventures on Twitter at @mizmaggieb or @eatboutique.
