Smadar has been working as a certified Travel advisor for over 20 years. Her favorite thing to do before the internet era, was to design day by day itineraries for her clients and she would literally send them with a little guide to follow. After experiencing many changes in the travel industry, Smadar decided to go back to what she loved best, combining her knowledge and contacts and founded Food N' Wine Vacations, a boutique Tour operator firm. The vision of the company is to provide cultural experience that will create lifetime memories. Food N' Wine Vacations programs feature in-depth exploration of a particular region. From visiting a local market, stay in a private estate, cooking with a local chef, mingling in the Piazzas and winery visits. Smadar was Epicurean Friend's first member. Visit her website

If you believe you are a bad cook, maybe you just haven't allowed yourself the freedom to use your kitchen to your advantage.
