At a very young age food has always been apart of my life providing enjoyment and bringing family together. Watching cooking competitions and seeing my mom cook big meals for family during the holidays and everyone’s facial expressions while a wave of quiet came over the entire room, I began to develop a sort of obsession with food. After high school I attended The Restaurant at Walnut Hill College where I received my Associates Degree in Culinary Arts.
I went on to work in multiple restaurants ranging from senior living to fine dining. I realized that I wanted to make a name for myself locally and eventually on a broader spectrum. In February 2018 in the beginning of my 20s I, Rita Stith, became the owner and Chef of what some may know me by, Food Goddess. A little girl from West Philadelphia with a dream and two of the most amazing parents, I vividly remember my mom telling me, “I want better for my kids and I want my kids to be better than me and learn from our mistakes”. I took those words to heart and continue to do so every day.
