My three passions in life are food and wine, travel and design.As a child, I could hardly bear the anticipation of my grandmother’s Christmas visits. She would arrive with a suitcase full of presents, unwrapped. She knew how much joy I got from sitting among a pile of gifts, wrapping. I spent hours colour coordinating the wrapping paper, putting exactly the right bow in place and making each present look just right. I still get such a kick out of giving. I love searching for exactly the right gift and presenting it in a beautiful way.My love of good food and wine began as a student, waitressing in a fine dining restaurant. My time working with chefs and sommeliers gave me an invaluable education in gourmet food and fine wine.Now, I like to combine my love of all things gourmet with travel. I spend my holidays travelling in search of hidden vineyards and amazing restaurants. I have visited Italy to experience the pasta and gelato, France for the wine and cheese, Germany for the beer and sausage.In 1998, when I decided to leave the corporate world and start running my own company, Gourmet Basket was the perfect fit.
