A little bit of background information about myself to give you a better understanding of why WalkingPalates. I have worked for several years in the tourism industry, I have worked both behind the desk than on the road having direct contact with travelers. The questions about food and the curiosity about local products and eating habits was the sparkle that made me reflect.
Then I decided to take a “sweet deviation” I literally followed my dream and my passion and I have founded AutoreChocolate! Yes, I became a chocolate producer and a new chapter of my life begun.
Working on the artisanal food segment is just amazing, it is an extraordinary opportunity to get to know and try delicious products but even better to get to know extraordinary people with unique and compelling stories.
One day, while sharing my experience with a couple of friends in a trattoria in Rome, eating probably the best “Gricia” I have ever had and after a couple of glasses of “vino dei colli” I felt like I had the answer to the questions travelers were asking me!
I had a great network of amazing people producing or preparing amazing food and I felt I wanted to share my knowledge and experience because they were exactly answering the questions travelers were asking me!
And here we are, talking about another dream! WalkingPalates is our opportunity to create a food community that connects travelers and food lovers with great products but even more with amazing people and their very unique stories.
