Peggy Wolff’s stories on what, where, and with whom people eat have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and other newspapers. She is also the food editor for realizemagazine.com and has written articles on ultrasports, art, design and photography for numerous publications including Chicago Magazine, Chicago Tribune SUNDAY Magazine and ArtNews. She received a B.F.A. in Cinema from California Institute of the Arts, where she completed two shorts, one on T’ai Chi which did well on the festival circuit, the other, an animated film for the Henry Mancini musical variety network show. Immediately afterwards, digital animation came about along with her grave realization that the two-minute film that took months of inking and painting could have been done in fifteen minutes on a computer. She wrote, produced, and directed short films, and researched stories for 20th Century Fox TV and a large documentary film studio.
Wolff divides her time between Chicago and Park City, Utah, where she has happily discovered mountain trout.
