What tours do you host?

I host them all! Join me on the World’s Best Food Truck Tour,  the Granville Island Market Tour, and the Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour.

MV, where do you get your contagious culinary prowess?
As a passionate foodie, I’ve been enjoying Vancouver’s culinary creations since I moved to the city at the age of four. Like the rest of us, I’ve also travelled the world! I think I’ve visited over 25 cities in 14 countries, and I’m always fueled by a desire to taste and experience new things.

What are some of your favourite foodie moments?

Touring the caves of Moet et Chandon in Champagne, France; tasting fresh cocoa seeds from a plantation in Ghana, West Africa; and sipping passionfruit daiquiris on the beaches of Margarita, Venezuela.

Can you name some of your favourite eats in Vancouver?

Yeah! My favourite local foods are the tuna tacos from Los CuervosTaqueria y Cantina, and the xiao long bao (soup-filled dumplings) from Peaceful Restaurant.

When you’re not hosting Vancouver Foodie Tours, where will we find you?

If I’m not devouring dumplings, you will find me singing, acting and/or dancing on the stages of the local theatres. If you take my tour, you’ll get an exclusive performance of my signature Vancouver Foodie Tours Song…you won’t want to miss it!
