A Canadian that, by way of serendipity came to Croatia via the Australian outback 12 years ago. I have lived in small villages in Dalmatia, hiked the highest peaks, hosted and cheffed at 2 Bed and Breakfasts, tour guided many adventurous souls through the islands and cities of Dalmatia, and now live permanently in Dubrovnik where my passion is hosting and designing special piknik and panorama experiences for people who want to really indulge and try local foods, some fusion recipes of mine, and specialties from all regions of Croatia, in the sublime beauty of my handpicked spots. I am also a witty and engaging story teller about Croatia, the country I adore as my adoptive home. Famous cooking memories to date in life: Made a fritatta for Fidel Castro for a diplomatics meal in Cuba (he did not show up!), one of my picnics resulted in a local stray dog finding a new home Helsinki!, helped design vegan pancetta for Jeff Bridges - in my former career as a movie food stylist..i have opened a wine bottle with a toothbrush.

Ils parlent de leur expérience chez Alexandra
The last thing you want when you have a picnic booked is rain. Unfortunately, that's what Dubrovnik gave us that day. Enter Alexandra: we were supposed to hike up to the top of a hill, but when it started to downpour she suggested we hike to an abandoned hotel(!) instead. It was amazing. The view was beautiful, the food was fantastic (especially the chicken liver pate and a yummy cake for dessert). Alexandra and the other guests were very fun to talk to and she made sure to keep our wine glasses topped up and she shared fun stories about living in Croatia. I know this sounds cliched, but this was the highlight of our trip. Do this. Book the picnic. You won't be disappointed.

So this was our first "Eat With" experience and it did not disappoint! Alexandra was such a delight.....Due to our time restraints getting back to the Bus to our Ship she was able to change our Hike Destination to a closer spot.....The View was phenomenal. She packed a wonderful Picnic for us to eat at our destination....I think the best part of the whole experience is that we feel like we made a friend....

Alexandra was an excellent host. We were lucky in that it was only my husband and I on our hike so she catered the walk based on our preferences. The location was secluded and just perfect for a great view of the sunset over Old Town. Food selection was amazing with a great attention to detail. It was like hanging out with some friends rather than a guided hike. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a special experience in Dubrovnik.
