Born in Tokyo, Eric Silverstein became immersed in Japanese food culture as a child. When his family moved to Atlanta, GA, he fell in love with Southern cooking. Silverstein eventually pursued a career in the food-truck industry, and has since been featured in The New York Times, People, Kiplinger’s, Food & Wine, and Details, as well as on Live! With Kelly & Michael, Food Network, and The Cooking Channel. Silverstein opened his first brick-and-mortar restaurant, The Peached Tortilla, in Austin, TX, in 2014 (named by The New York Times as “One of the Five Places to Go in Austin”). In 2016, Silverstein opened Peached Social House, a one-of-a-kind event and catering space, and in 2018, he opened The Peached Tortilla’s first fast-casual restaurant in Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
