As we gear up for our first busy weekend of the summer with three brand new tours running, we couldn't be more thankful for the enthusiasm and commitment of our tour guides! We wouldn't be launching these new tours until we knew that we had incredible, passionate, and knowledgeable guides to take guests on the culinary walking journeys. We have profiled each of our guides in the About Us section of our site, so please check it out.
We are very excited to have Ellie on board as one of our Jamaica Plain tour guides! Ellie was raised on an organic farm in Wisconsin, so she definitely have a unique perspective on food that can't be matched. Ellie has spent months exploring her new home and also works with the Roslindale farmers market, which is legendary in the area. Besides being extremely active outdoors (Ellie typically bikes to our meetings), when she was in high school her parents had a limited amount of butter she could use each week because she loved to bake so much that she was going through crazy amounts of butter. And that must be a lot of butter given that she grew up surrounded by cows. We know you'll learn a lot from Ellie, and we cannot wait to welcome you on a food tour of JP.
