Chef/Owner, Nicole O'Brien, grew up in the vast and delightful culinary wonderland of Northern Califonia. James Beard and Julia Child cookbooks were staples in her household along with siblings and parents who delighted in nightly creations with ingredients pulled from the local harvest in the spirit of Alice Waters. With this background in tow, Nicole pursued a life in the arts. After years of stage creation, she took like a duck to water, channeling all of her history into the world of culinary creation. For the past five years she has been a private chef to those with a fine palate and no time. Nicole is overjoyed to bring her passion and creativity to her neighborhood of twelve years, Hudson Heights, with The Pandering Pig!

Mother Wit Broth

Mother Wit broth was hatched in the New York City kitchen of chef Nicole O'Brien in 2013. Nicole carefully honed her chicken, beef and vegan broths and has been using them both within her delicious fare and as stand alone elixirs for her private clientele and restaurant patrons at The Pandering Pig restaurant in Hudson Heights. Made in small batches, the broth continually retains the quality and customization of Nicole's high standards. 


Mother Wit uses organic and locally sourced ingredients from farms in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Our chickens are organic and kosher certified from the green pastures of Pennsylvania. 

  Cluckity Chicken Broth

At Mother Wit, we believe in the wholesome qualities of organic veggies and chicken stewed for hours to thick, tasty, mineral rich goodness. We believe in the good fat from an organic healthy hen and minerals that are leeched from the bones and cartilage during a long stew. Added to that are the minerals and vitamins seeped from organic beets, carrots and onions to name a few. The result is a broth that is not only thick with flavor, but also packed with nourishment. We like to call it liquid gold - lovingly made with your whole health in mind. So yummy, you'll want to sip it like a hot tea, use it as a base to make the most delicious soup on earth or add it to your favorite dish to infuse incredible flavor. 

Plant Yourself Vegan Broth 3 a 2.jpg

Close your eyes, take a deep breath, plant your feet and take a long swig from our super fantastic Vegan Broth. A broth that is such a super hero, it can switch between a juice and a soup in a flash. Our deep, thick vegan broth is packed full of unfiltered mineral riches from organic root vegetables: beets, parsnips, carrots, onions and ginger. To that, we add the power of organic greens: seaweed, parsley, celery and fresh herbs. We then stew it all to thick, tasty perfection. We love it straight from the package, on ice, or added to your favorite dish to give it that extra oomph and depth of flavor. Our carefully honed elixir makes you feel so nourished that we feel sure that you too will plant yourself and sigh 'aahhhhhhh' with contentment.
