Me: I founded the Food Trekkers travel company which was born out of an interest for cooking and people. I studied food science and technology at UCC in Ireland after which I moved to Sweden to work at the national food administration (Livsmedelsverket) in Uppsala. My dream is to introduce people to each other and to Scandinavia through cooking. Hope you enjoy the experience!
