My name is Michelle Aspis and I am the voice behind this madness. I started Grassroots Gourmet back in Nov 2008 as a part of my college senior thesis project but am now continuing the site onto my life post-graduate school adventures after my time at University of Gastronomic Sciences (Universita di Scienze Gastronomiche) in Parma, Italy.
I love food, but more importantly, I love good food with an with a rich history. I currently work for a company that represents important Italian specialty food brands in the US of A.
Where my road leads, who knows? But whether I end up the next Anthony Bourdain (my god I wish), or just a very happy soul with a full belly, I want to bring my readers along for the ride..
Join me as I take a bite around the world.
