I love my job and I never get tired of hosting tours because every guest is different. We laugh and talk and by the end of the tour, I feel like I've known this person my whole life! Plus being a part of downtown Cincinnati, OH and Covington KY is so exciting right now. The revitalization of old neighborhoods, the plethora of new restaurants, the parks, the streetcar, the river fronts and all the new residents embracing urban living, creates change every single day! I feel blessed to be a part of it! ~ Laura
Hello! I'm a local gal who grew up in Northern Kentucky. I work in the Operations Department for Delta Airlines. I love working for Riverside Food Tours because it allows me to meet new people and see the city on foot. My favorite tour is the Ethnic Eats tour in Over the Rhine because the neighborhood seems to change weekly. Being a foodie, I love seeing the new restaurants open up and being a shopper, I love exploring the little boutiques and family owned shops. It's a unique cultural experience just to stroll the streets and watch all the people come and go! My favorite spot to grab a quick bite is Injoy. Injoy is like an Indian Chipolte, so I can watch my dish being made and customize it however I like.
I was born and raised in Cincinnati and work as an historian for the Heritage Programs at the Cincinnati Museum Center. I am passionate about Cincinnati’s history. I truly enjoy introducing visitors to my hometown. Leading food tours allows me to share Cincinnati’s story around the table! Adding excellent food and drink to the experience makes for a perfect blend of culture and culinary adventure. Taste and see!! ~ Kat
I love Cincinnati and I love good food! I moved downtown 5 years ago to experience the renaissance occurring in OTR and Downtown. Riverside Food Tours allows me to share my passion for our city’s history as well as great food choices available in the area! My favorite meal is the short rib ravioli at Sotto (YUMMY!) and my favorite place is Over the Rhine in Washington Park and Findlay Market. ~ Jackie
I am a transplant to the Cincinnati region from the Kansas City area and currently call Newport, KY home. I moved to Cincinnati for graduate school and just could not bring myself to leave! I work as the Exhibitions and Collections Manager for the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and I have a Master’s in Public History—so when I say I love history, I really mean it! Working with Riverside Food Tours allows me to combine my love of history with my other love, food. As a self-proclaimed “foodie,” I love the opportunity to talk with new people about all the different type of food and beverages Cincinnati has to offer! They say “home is where your heart is,” and my heart sure is happy and full in Cincinnati! ~ Katie
