Meet the Savouring Bath Team!
A passionate tourism professional with over 25 years experience, Mike is a Yorkshireman who is also a bit of a self-confessed food snob! He loves high-end culinary establishments which present food which looks like a piece of art! But on the other side of the coin, he’ll always be happy with regular dish of good old comfort food created with tasty, local produce that reminds him of home!
Cheryl has been working with people as long as she can remember! After spending time teaching in both Madrid, and then in Bristol she settled in Bath, where she loves showing off the city to visitors from all over the world… especially the foodie scene which she has watched change so rapidly in recent years and has found the people who have created the wonderful new food outlets to be hugely inspiring and passionate about what they do!
Originally from the south west, Mark has always been a major foodie, and has travelled the world to try different food flavours & textures! Cooking at home is what he enjoys the most, but sharing good food is his greatest passion. Mark has established a strong connection with Bath’s culinary scene and is always quick to try out anything new which springs up in the city. He especially loves the famous farmers market each Saturday where you can often find him picking through the various edible delights to find inspiration for a new meal.
Val has worked as a tourist guide in Bath since 2013, she says “I’m really interested in food & social history which is what I studied at Uni. I love traveling & eating – preferably at the same time!”
