Julie was born and raised in the United States, with a family that blended palettes of international cultures. Her culinary experience and love of "presentation" began at an early age, always observing those around her, primarily her parents, grandparents and great-grandmother. She studied in Spain and graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration. In the mid 1980’s she founded brainchild, Private Affair Gourmet Catering on Florida’s Gulf Coast; one of the area’s premier catering companies. From there she continued as a consultant and lent helping hands to Williams and Sonoma, Art Smith Companies and The Oprah Winfrey Show, to name a few.

We loved this tour! Our tour guide was very nice and extremely knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the city and its history along with getting to taste a great variety of local foods. This is definitely a unique way to see the city and we would recommend it to anyone.

My parents and I did this tour, it was my second time in the city and their first. The food samples were delicious and well portioned - at no point did I feel too hungry or two full. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and offered a culinary perspective on different restaurants and flavors, while also giving us historical tidbits and wonderful insights on the city. As someone who works in the travel industry, I truly enjoyed it, and would highly recommend to anyone traveling to New Orleans.
