Maggie Battista

2012 Speaker

Maggie Battista is the founder of Eat Boutique, an online magazine and gourmet market that discovers the best small batch foods by boutique food makers. Selling out of their first gift box of independent food in 2009, Eat Boutique has since been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Gilt Taste, The Boston Globe and Daily Candy. Battista continues to offer unique and delicious small batch food in monthly tasting subscriptions and gift boxes for food fans and home cooks. She also hosts Eat Boutique Markets, beautifully designed, convivial events where she spotlights cookbook authors and food and drink makers. Her markets have gathered more than 2,000 guests and have sold out of cookbooks. Battista regularly travels far distances to find the next great chef, farmer, food maker or host. (@mizmaggieb)
