The food of our travels reflect the people and the culture–from the Amish country of Pennsylvania to the seaside of Spain, Cooking Network star Chef Annie Sibonney understands that.

The Spanish cuisine expert on all things entertaining and olives took the time to answer questions from us as travel foodies, travelers and traveling moms.

Chef Annie learned about food first hand by traveling the world with her parents from the time she was a baby. Today, she is the co-creator and host of “From Spain with Love.” The Cooking Network show allows us to explore the culinary diversity of Spain through her adventures.

She also runs Relish Culinary Tours. The tours feature travel focused in unique experiences, food, wine, culture and indulgence.
