What We Do
The Peachtree Team
I don’t like gourmet cooking or ‘this’ cooking or ‘that’ cooking. I like good cooking.
We come from a tradition of apprenticeship and training. And we have high standards. The members of our team are outstanding at what they do! More than that, they’re really nice people! We are a family. We spend a lot of time together, so we prefer to enjoy each others’ company!
Jon is a native Philadelphian who roots for the Phillies, enjoys cycling and photography. He speaks French, has a masters in English from Tufts University (his thesis on William Faulkner) and loves to ‘read’ books on tape. Cormac McCarthy ranks high on the list. His favorite Peachtree dish is the lobster and celery root tower with extra-virgin olive oil and gros sel. His favorite snack is goat cheese, not chips. He knows a tremendous amount about wine.Lori is a graduate of Yale where she studied comparative literature with a concentration in French. Interesting that her thesis on Marcel Proust recounted life in all its flavor, from the earthiest boeuf a la ficelle to the most fabulous soirees of high society, not to mention the now infamous Madeleine. She is co-author of The Ultimate Bar/Bat Mitzvah Celebration Book: A guide to Inspiring Ceremonies and Joyous Festivities, published by Clarkson Potter. When she’s not planning parties, Lori loves to practice yoga, read and write long novels, which then get stored in the basement alongside Jon’s wines. Her favorite Peachtree dish is salt caramel brownies.
