A Chef and a Storyteller.
Meet the founders of I Eat Food Tours.
In the first post of our blog we told you how it all started… I mean, we explained how we decided to set up I Eat Food Tours.
For those of you who’d like to read it, this down here is the link
However, exept for the page of the website “About us“, we never have told you something, so to speak, more private.
Let’s do it now, then!
Nice to e-meet you, we’re Abram and Cecilia and we are the founders of I Eat. Walking Food Tours in the beautiful city of Turin (Torino in Italian).
Abram is an executive chef. He is a Dutch living in the Piedmontese capital;
I am a sociologist, specialized in food studies and Socology of Tourism. I was born and raised in Torino, which really is the city where I belong…
Before I Eat Food Tours I ‘ve been working for several years as a social researcher for the University of Studies of Turin, and then as a trainer and consultant for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
I do love writing, storytelling, meeting people from all the world…and, last but not least, I am in love with my town and food likewise! (It could ever be different?).
Life is a Sunflower 🙂
Abram and I met in 2014 through social networking… and probably by the Food’s blessings.
I was immediately fascinated by Abram’s delicious dishes: so colorful and powerful, they told me a lot about him and his way of seeing life.
Abram, for his part, was quite charmed by my vibrant personality and my way to write about anything I love: including food, of course.
You know what’s happend in eight months?
Like in the most beautiful and modern fairytale, for the two of us was love at first sight therefore we decided to live togheter.
( Btw, we e-met on Valentine’s day… This special date meant something, after all! ).
So, by using many spoons of courage and with his heart filled with hope, Abram left his beloved Utrecht https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utrecht
and he moved to Torino.
… In this magic town he didn’t find just love awaits for him, but a really nice job as head chef in a marvellouse and historical place in the center of Torino, named Farmacia del Cambio.
You know, life never stops to surprise you if you give it a chance.
So, here we are now, enthusiastic to fly
high with these tasty culinary adventures in our magic city!
We really can’t wait to share the culinary treasures of Torino.
