In 2007, Maggie Battista started Eat Boutique as a gift box service to share her love of DIY gourmet foods crafted by local producers. After selling out of her first gift box in 2009, Battista expanded to Eat Boutique Markets; intimate tasting events and convivial markets for food makers, cookbook authors and small batch food fans. Since then, Eat Boutique has become a hugely popular venture that has garnered press from The Wall Street Journal, Gilt Taste and The Boston Globe.
Battista will join the ranks of past “Passion Turned Paycheck” series participants such as Nella Pasta, Peak Organic and Crush Boutique to share with students how her passion for crafting boutique foods has made the magazine and market a success story. Students will be encouraged to share their startup ideas as well as their love of fine crafted food and drink.
