Connie is a travel industry veteran with some 30 years of experience in all aspects of the business—and a foodie. In 2013, she founded Forks on the Road, a Boston-based boutique culinary travel company. Connie defines culinary travel as discovering a destination's history and culture through its cuisine and foodways. She’s designed itineraries for the elite cookware company Sur La Table, learning journeys for groups of dieticians, and a smorgasbord of adventures for culinary curious travelers with iconic sightseeing and unique experiences on the menu. As a freelance writer, Connie shares her own travels with insight and an extra helping of advice. She adores her four grandgirls ages six to 19 years and her superhero worshipping five-year-old grandson. So, in every destination and amid every experience (making pasta, watching bees produce honey, or visiting the famed black pigs of Parma) she is thinking, “would the kids like this?” She’ll let you know.
