Who: Bethia Woolf & Andy Dehus of Columbus Food Adventures
Where: Columbus, Ohio
Have you ever taken a food tour? They are a way to walk (and taste) through a city to learn its signature foods and flavors, not to mention some of its history and culture. I've enjoyed food tours in London, Paris, and other delicious cities that required a plane ticket to visit. But food tours happen much closer to home, too — and they're no less fascinating or instructive for happening in your own back yard. My friends Bethia and Andy run a tour company right here in Columbus, Ohio, and I've always admired their work and passion for introducing people to the food coming out of the best immigrant kitchens of Central Ohio.
I've always been curious, too: what does it look like to run a food tour company in a smaller market like Columbus? How does a business like this work, and what created their idea for it in the first place? Come meet Bethia and Andy — today we're talking about the food tours, and later this week we'll peek into their own home kitchen and how they cook when they eat in, not out.
