About The Author
Amateur gourmet chef, foodie, and wine enthusiast...reader of historical fiction, equestrian, adventure traveler, Barca fan, mom and romantic. I plan custom gourmet-centric journeys for my clients along with adventure travel and honeymoons. My romantic tendencies make me a great fit for destination weddings, anniversaries, special occasions, and surprise trips. I am a member of the world-wide gourmet association, the Chaine des Rotisseurs. My wine cellar is full of Brunellos, Barolos, Burgundies and of course, Champagne--bubbles for every occasion! I am addicted to putting my foodie photos on Instagram! My personal favorite travel experiences are rappelling down waterfalls in Costa Rica on my honeymoon; introducing my children to the joys of Italian art, food, & wine; exploring the red sand hills of Wadi Rum, Jordan with my private, Bedouin driver, hiking up a Patagonian Peak with my husband for his milestone birthday, spying the Treasury of Petra for the first time, and watching a glorious fireworks display over Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. Most recently, I experienced the fabulous Paulee de Meursault in Burdundy! Just.Wow! I have a passion for independent, custom-made trips to Europe. Italy has a special place in my heart and holds many of my fondest travel memories! Last Traveled: Alaska Next Up: The Amalfi Coast of Italy and Rome for my anniversary!
