When I guide culinary tours, my clients often say, "You have the best job in the world."
I couldn't agree more.
I get to walk around one of the world's most beautiful historical and fascinating cities,
tasting delicious food, meeting interesting people, engaging in conversations on topics I am passionate about...
...and introducing wonderful chefs, wine merchants, cheesemongers, butchers, greengrocers, and artisans to my clients.
I like that Orazio, the fresh pasta guy, lets me take clients in the back of his shop to show how he makes tagliatelle casarecce. I love it when the workers at the bread baker see me walk in, they say, "Eccola!" – here she is, like they were expecting me. I like that if the group is in the mood, we can stop for a glass of wine at an enoteca. I'm happy there is no strict itinerary, and instead a fair amount of improvisation. Mostly, I like the smiles.
