Hey there! I'm Chef Jacquie, owner of StrEATS of Philly Food Tours, formerly Taste 4 Travel Food Tours. I am a native of South Philly and feel very lucky that I lived in South Philly and Italy for a major part of my life. I am a a professional chef and I have whipped some of my favorite passions together--food, people, and Philly--into a Food Tour Company dedicated to serving up knock-out guided food tasting adventures in the City of Sisterly Love. I trained at the prestigious Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, and am Vice President of the Philadelphia Chapter of Les Dames d’Esoffier International, a philanthropic organization of women supporting women in the food, fine beverage and hospitality industry. I'm warm, fun, and more than a little saucy.
Samples and lunch
We stop in 5-6 shops. We meet cheesemongers, artisans and chefs. We enjoy sampling cheeses, tortillas, pizza, cannoli, vinegar, olive oil and gelato, which add up to lunch. Some of the places we visit could include: DiBruno's House of Cheese, Isgro's Bakery, Talluto's, Anthony's Coffee/Gelato/Chocolate House, and San Roman Tortilleria
