Jodi Campbell, Owner
After working in corporate marketing for 20 years in Boston, it was time for a change. So I sold the house, packed up my life, and moved to Beaufort. Everyone's response to this when I tell them is, "Why??" No, I'm not crazy. :) My sister was here and my daughter was starting college in Greenville. Besides, I like change; it keeps life interesting.
When I turned 40 (no, I will NOT reveal how long ago that was!), I took time off from work to attend Pastry School then owned an online chocolate shop for a few years. I love to bake and cook, and when I got to Beaufort, one of the first things I did was look for a good kitchen store. When I couldn't find one, I called my sister and floated the idea of opening a store. And so, Cook on Bay was born!
Anne Willey, Jodi's Sister & Manager of Uncontrolled Daydreaming and Chief Gadget Tester
Even while spending 30 years in law, corporate, and academia, few things gave me more satisfaction in life than my family telling me how good dinner was, or my grown children asking for a favorite recipe that was mostly in my head.
We moved to the Lowcountry two years ago, where we fell in love with its people AFTER we fell in love with the food! Seafood, spices, rice, rich stews, and the freshest fruits and vegetables... we can't get enough of the flavors and methods of LC cooking.
Jodi's brainchild, Cook on Bay, grew from our shared passion for good cooking ... and needing good tools for our good cooking.
Jodi and I love to laugh at everything, and at each other, and we will laugh at you. We both are willing to work as hard as we can to achieve excellence and satisfy our patrons. And we find joy in simple things like rolling the perfect dough or licking the same spoon...at the same time.
Cook on Bay is a home for the adventurous cook as well as the novice cook, so come on in and share your passion for cooking with us sistas!
