You’re good at living the good life. 

You adore new experiences in new places–especially if they’re serving food.

You want to eat like a local, wherever your adventures might take you.

You’re deeply in love with cheese.

You want to do something different, exciting and delicious.

You’re passionate about culture and connecting with community in an authentic way.

You have great taste.

You’re obsessed with the Food Network and/or the Travel Channel.

You’re proud to support small businesses.

You’re always on the hunt for hidden foodie gems–you love to brag about new discoveries.

You’re curious about exploring Philadelphia–the real Philadelphia–with your tastebuds.

Philly’s food scene is calling your name, but Googling “Philadelphia” and “food” delivers you page after page of cheesesteak joints and soft pretzel stands–all claiming to be the real deal. Reading hundreds of conflicting stranger’s reviews trying to get to the good stuff is exhausting.

You feel like you want to throw up your hands, throw in the towel and yell…”Aaaaaadriaaaannnn!!!!”

(Yes…That’s a shameless Rocky reference.)

Creating an itinerary that guarantees the best food and the best time in a neighborhood you don’t know jack about is nearly impossible.

And it takes you away from what you’re best at–living the good life.

Mediocre meals, poor service, and disappointing experiences aren’t in your MO.

They’re not in mine either.

I’m Chef Jacquie, and I’m an expert at living La Dolce Vita.

I’m a South Philadelphia native and a professional chef, and I love taking the guess work out of taking a bite out of Philly for my guests.

I’ve whipped my passions together–food, people, and Philadelphia–

into a Culinary Tour Company dedicated to serving up

knock-out guided tasting adventures in the City of Brotherly Love.

I craft tours that go behind-the-scenes of famous kitchens, bakeries, gourmet food shops, and 5th generation small businesses–expect generous samples, professional demos, tastes and stories you won’t hear anywhere else.

My lifelong intimate relationships with the owners, vendors and chefs means not only do you get the real deal good stuff–you get welcomed like family.

I’m fun, warm and more than a little saucy–I’ve got a flair for storytelling, an appetite for adventure and MOST importantly…

I’ve got the culinary chops and the insider connections to guide you on a mouthwatering, elevated tasting excursion of Philadelphia that satisfies.
