Lisa Clark claims cookie dough and homemade pizza were the first foods she ate on this earth, possibly within moments of her birth. Hyperbolic? Maybe, but also a fitting answer from a lifelong Portlander who grew up as part of a large Italian Family that “lived to cook and loved to eat”.
For now, Petunia’s is a one-woman show, albeit one with lots of help from friends and family. Saturday’s PSU Market is the next step towards the goal of retail shop and wholesale accounts. Along with the recently acquired Petunia-mobile delivery van and a booth at Portland Farmers Market, Lisa has a website up and running to take orders for weddings, events and parties – you can visit the site here or check out her offerings without having to leave the comfort of Facebook by becoming a fan of Petunia’s Pies and Pastries.
