About Ryanna Battiste

Ryanna Battiste began to love food at age 7, when survival in a family of 6 kids meant learning how to scramble yourself an egg if someone ate the last piece of chicken before you got your first. In Summer 2007, she studied at the Apicius Culinary School in Florence Italy where she learned the importance of cooking with fresh ingredients, and returned home passionate about adding locally sourced produce to her home-cooked creations. In 2008, as she sought to get to the bottom of her deteriorating health and her sons extreme colic, Ryanna was floored to realize that food was closely linked to their every symptom. As a response to what she felt was a serious lack of support and resources in helping consumers make informed food choices and truly listen to their bodies, Battiste opened GRUB, a place for Community Food Education in Wilmington NC. She has a passion for helping individuals choose real foods by offering classes, workshops and support both at the GRUB house and throughout Southeastern NC. She proudly serves on the board of directors at Tidal Creek Cooperative Market in Wilmington.
