Courtney Perkins grew up at the Wenham Tea House and learned unique, traditional recipes, cooking and baking styles from her grandmother. After graduating Hamilton-Wenham Regional Highschool, Courtney attended Stonehill College and Salem State Univeristy in Salem.

After college, Courtney decided to come back to the Wenham Tea House. Working alongside multiple different owners and management companies over the ensuing eleven years, she proved herself to be adept at every facet of the operation—from the back of the kitchen to the front of the house.
Now the kitchen manager of Fresh Food Catering and the Wenham Tea House, Courtney brings an aesthetic flair to all of our food presentations so it not only tastes delicious but looks spectacular.
