Today we’d like to introduce you to Grace Della.
Grace, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started Miami Culinary Tours in 2010. My mother was a huge inspiration to me. Her passion for cooking, love of people and her skills as an educator gave me the idea to start a food tour that she could run in her own home town. I remembered as a little girl that the happiest times at home were when my mom would cook, family would come around and everyone would share stories around the table. I decided to bring this idea into my own life and I came up with the idea of Miami Culinary Tour’s first tour called the Cuban-Inspired Food Tour back when nobody had ever heard of food tours in Miami. I was lucky to have some of the most passionate people joining my team and believed in my idea.
With a five-star rating that spans thousands of reviews on TripAdvisor, Google and Yelp, Miami Culinary Tours is a leader in culinary and cultural experiences in Miami. We have earned a reputation for excellence by introducing visitors and locals to some of the most talented restaurants in town while covering the culture behind the food. Guides are intimately acquainted with the neighborhoods and premier fine dining as well as mom-and-pop ethnic eateries that reflect the diversity of the city.
We offer daily public and private tours throughout the city’s most celebrated neighborhoods. From Cafe Cubano to Peruvian Ceviche, we bring you everything South Florida’s culinary communities have to offer as well as the culture and tradition behind those doing the cooking.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Miami Culinary Tours story. Tell us more about the business.
I am the founder and the Director of Operations. I lead with 17 years of professional tour/hospitality management experience. I contribute my years of experience for adaptive organization and an eye for event details. Together with the rest of the team, I provide personal client service and works directly with culinary leaders and vendors within the city.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I believe that the industry is in its infancy still. People will be more inclined to take culinary tours where they travel and even in their own cities to learn about the latest restaurant openings, explore the cultures behind the food and meet other people that are also passionate about dinning.
