About Melissa Petersen

Melissa Petersen is the editor and publisher of Edible Memphis Magazine. After 12 years in corporate marketing, she ventured to culinary school, cooked in restaurants, and ran a catering company. A transplant to Memphis, she can easily direct you to the best hamburger, charcuterie platter, shrimp and grits, apple pie, chess pie, sweetbreads, po’boy, and farm-fresh pickles in town. But, she hopes you’ll explore on your own.
