Pastor Melissa L. Stoller was born and grew up a Pastor’s kid in southern Minnesota. She holds degrees from Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. She has served congregations in Northern Minnesota, Penn Hills, and with ELCA Global Mission at the Moscow Protestant Chaplaincy in Moscow Russia. Currently she is the Director for Evangelical Mission and Assistant to the Bishop for New, Renewing and Collaborative Ministries for the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod of the ELCA.

Eric Stoller shares: ​"I began my love of cooking in 3rd grade when I made my first box of macaroni and cheese by myself (not including the five calls to my mother). It was so bad I clogged the garbage disposal trying to get rid of it.

"Over time, I've graduated to much more sophisticated food with much better results. In our family, I'm the show-off cook. I'm hopeless when it comes to keeping our family fed with reasonably nutritious food on a daily basis. But if you need an outrageous spread for a fabulous dinner party I'm your guy! I have a special love for cooking whole animals--ideally in my front yard."

Melissa and Eric live in Pittsburgh with their eight-year-old son Adam. They enjoy cooking, exploring new restaurants and food festivals and parks throughout Western PA.
