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.
