As if competing under the stars at Ijams with Jennifer Niceley wasn’t enough, Rita Cochran of Public Food will be serving up a sweet, delicious picnic. It is strongly recommended that you pre-purchase this as only a limited number will be available at the door. Rita Cochranâ€™s interest in creating food began in the first grade when she read about a peanut butter and pickle sandwich in a Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Since then she has traveled to cities and towns all over the world learning about food preparation and flavor combinations. Rita has helped develop several concept restaurants, and specializes in simple traditional foods with a modern twist. Currently, her recipes are featured at Public House in Knoxville Tennessee, and her own company Public Food is proud to feature catering using locally grown and hand made foods.
