Kenny

COMPANY DIRECTOR

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

Getting to know some of the greatest people in the city.

What makes London one of the greatest cities on the planet?

There is no other city with so much diversity and dynamism all in one place.

What is your hands-down favorite stop on our tour?

Do you ask a mother who her favorite child is? All of them equally.

What is London’s best kept secret?

That’s easy- the salted caramel tart at Pizza East.

Nicole

OPERATIONS MANAGER / FOOD TOUR GUIDE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

I can’t believe my job actually exists. Walking, talking and eating my way through the neighbourhood that I love, devouring delicious food with amazing people from all corners of the globe, need I say more?!

What makes London the greatest city on the planet?

There is something for everyone, it is the city of choice. Every street has a story to tell, or a museum to enter, a free gig to watch, an amazing market to eat at, art on the streets, a magical park to sit in, a pub on every corner, inspiration is everywhere you look!

What is your hands-down favourite stop on our tour?

I have to say The House of Androuet. Not only does the smell of cheese lure me in from around the corner, but the staff that we work with welcome us like we are family each and every single day and their passion and love for cheese is just indescribable.

What is London’s best kept secret?

If I told you that, then it wouldn’t be a secret anymore, would it?

Maria

SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTOR, EATING EUROPE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

Being treated to a feast for the eyes every day and seeing delicious pics posted daily across our various social media platforms.

What is your hands down favorite stop on our tour?

Salted caramel is a feast for the eyes and stomach for any sweet tooth!

Don’t leave London without doing what?

Our tour of course! Let us give you a real food introduction to the city by exploring one of its coolest neighborhoods.

What is it that you love about London?

The East End of course!

Adam

ONLINE MARKETING MANAGER, EATING EUROPE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

Besides the great company (and the great food!), the fact that everyone at Eating London is so warmly connected to the East End community really makes this job special.

What is your hands down favorite stop on The East End Food Tour?

Not usually a sucker for sweets, the bread & butter pudding is my favorite food on the London tour.

Don’t leave London without doing what?

I think everyone should make their way out to visiting East London – it’s where so much of London’s vibrancy has moved out to, so it’s worth the trek.

What is that you love about London?

London is such a big, cosmopolitan city and it seems to have a bit of everything. I love the London museums, theatre and even the London underground!

Krystal

CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

Working with colorful (and wonderful) people day in and day out from all over the world — and the food isn’t too bad either…

What makes London one of the greatest cities on the planet?

The Street Art. The street art in East London never fails to surprise me – it’s incredibly nuanced!

Don’t leave London without doing what?

Taking one of our tours, of course!

What is your hands-down favorite stop on our tours?

I love the Bread and Butter Pudding – it’s one of my favourite desserts!

Jennifer

CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

For me, it is helping people plan an exciting part of their vacation. I like when people share their stories as to why they are travelling and about the special occasions they will be celebrating.

What is London’s best kept secret?

The East End – there’s a surprise waiting at every corner.

So you’re hosting a dinner party. What knock out dish are you going to prepare?

If I were going to host a dinner party I would prepare roasted pork tenderloin with apples…this is one of my family’s new favorites!

Don’t leave London without doing what?

Hiring a bike and travelling around the city like a local…

Attessa

MARKETING DIRECTOR, EATING EUROPE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

I get to work with the smartest group of people I’ve ever met – who all also love to travel and try new things. What could be better? Oh, and I get to work from home, too! Can’t beat it.

What is your hands down favorite stop on our tour?

Beigel Bake! Because I have never tasted a bagel quite so good (and I’ve had a lot of great bagels)- topped with cured beef- honestly… can NOT beat it.

So you’re hosting a dinner party. What knock out dish are you going to prepare?

Nothing! Just because I love food doesn’t mean I can cook it. I’d ask my husband to cook (and he’d decide what is on the menu too)!

Don’t leave London without doing what?

One of our tours, of course! And do it on one of your first days here because they are filled with tons of tips and recommendations that will be useful for your entire stay. Sorry to be a pusher but it’s true.

Michael

MARKETING MANAGER, EATING LONDON

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

My colleagues. Seeing how much the tour guides really love London and the food on the tour. Interacting with people who are going on the tour or have been on the tour is great too. I’ll never get tired of hearing people talk about how much they enjoyed their experiences and liked the guides.

What makes London one of the greatest cities on the planet?

I love how multicultural it all is. As someone who has grown up travelling and experiencing different cultures around the world, I just love that London seems to have it all. People say there are over 300 languages spoken in the city, and there are embassies and clubs for every country on the planet. This trickles down into the food, drinks, festivals and just about every other part of the life in London.

What is your hands-down favorite stop on our tour?

I don’t think I could say ‘hands-down’, but I just LOVE a good bacon sandwich, so St John Bread and Wine would take it for me. Before I did the tour I was told that it would be the best bacon sandwich I had ever eaten, I was more than a little skeptical, but it was. Absolutely lovely stuff!

Don’t leave London without doing what?

This one really depends on your age, but I would say a good pub on a Friday evening. It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing, if you get to a London pub at 6pm on a Friday you’ll have a great time, the atmosphere will be buzzing and everyone will be in a great mood. Of course, you have to have done the Eating London tour first, to make sure you’re ready for that cold beer!

Hanna

FOOD TOUR GUIDE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

Bread and Butter pudding. Need I say more.

What makes London one of the greatest cities on the planet?

“It is not a pleasant place; it is not agreeable, or cheerful, or easy, or exempt from reproach; it is only magnificent.” Henry James, 1869

What is your hands-down favorite stop on our tour?

Got to be the English Restaurant. It’s a kind place with soul… and old fashioned pudding is close to my heart. I have a killer sweet tooth. The sign that reads ‘No Laptops’ just sums it up. In trendy East London it’s a god-send to find somewhere that is more likely to seat Miss Marple than a graphic designer. Coming in a very close second is Pride of Spitalfields- ale is another of my life’s passions.

What is London’s best kept secret?

Lamachuns. It’s a Turkish pizza type thing, averaging about £1.50 a pop. Dreamy all times of the day or night. Just head to Hackney and those Turkish Kebab shops will sort you out.

Emily

FOOD TOUR GUIDE

The biggest perk about working for Eating London Food Tours is…

Enjoying the company of new people from all around the world on a daily basis, and watching them delight in delicious food. It’s like hosting the best dinner party ever, only after this one I don’t have to do the washing up!

What makes London one of the greatest cities on the planet?

London’s like a sponge; it happily absorbs the colours, flavours and tastes of other cultures. It’s a city of contrast and contradictions where anyone can feel at home. There’s always something new to discover, something extraordinary to behold. And of course the pubs! Let’s not forget the humble boozers on every corner!

What is your hands-down favorite stop on our tour?

Androuet cheese shop. I have fantasies about being locked in there overnight with an empty tummy and a corkscrew!!!! The boys are so knowledgeable and passionate, and any accent that can make ‘cheddar’ sound like the most exotic and sexy word in the English language gets my vote! Merci gentlemen!

What is London’s best kept secret?

I’m not sure London has secrets any more, but a few of my favourites have to be the beautifully authentic and rustic food at the unassuming Huong Viet restaurant on Enlgefield Road near Dalston, free daylight music or night time gigs at The Union Chapel, idyllic sunny day picnics along New River Walk in Cannonbury and absolutely anything from the E5 Bakehouse, Hackney.
