Hello! I am Gerla de Boer, the founder of the Cambridge Food Tour, UK. I began messing about in the kitchen from a very young age and even started mapping out the family holidays as a young teen/child/adult. My love for food and travel started early and has brought me to where I am today.
Over the last 35 years, I have covered a good proportion of our beautiful planet, both travelling and eating my way around each destination whilst also working in food-related businesses so decided it was time to put my experiences in writing to share with others.
With a background in the hospitality industry and in retail, I have worked on many exciting projects. I grew up in the North of the Netherlands, Friesland, where I studied Hotel Management, then, after working abroad for a few years, I decided to go back home again. My specialism is in a niche market in retail, hospitality and the travel industry.
In 2012 I set up the Cambridge Food Tour as I wanted to share Cambridge and it’s food with locals and visitors to Cambridge. Over the years, I have created close partnerships within the local food scene, which has enabled us to offer an award-winning product. Thanks to my in-depth knowledge of the Cambridge food scene, I have even been able to connect many local food businesses to form successful collaborations.
