In 2013, Bianca & Elisabeth, started a Food Tour project called “Wiener Sinnestour” which caters to local food lovers.
We are happy to offer the First Vienna Food Tour to English speaking food lovers.
Bianca trained as chef, is a passionate food lover, writer & entertainer. After working in Environmental Politics she dedicated her professional life to food and runs her own business called Bianca is(s)t which literally translated means Bianca “is” because she “eats”. She has published cook books and also organizes English cooking classes for visitors in Vienna. Her profession makes her happy every day and luckily she has also been travelling all over the world which has enhanced her cultural understanding also in connection with the meaning of food. Pleasure and Food dedicate Bianca’s life!
Elisabeth is a sensory professional and tastes foods and drinks for a living. Could there be a better job? Elisabeth has a company called Sensorikum, specialized in sensory training. She enjoys natural and artisanal food products. Her passion is sharing them with friends and using them in her own kitchen. Elisabeth loves tasting new food products. However, she is also convinced that great food does not have to be elitist – it is the simple dishes we know from our childhood that make us happy!
Sabrina studies Nutrition Sciences and is always looking for the best taste! She manages to discover new producers and aromas, no matter if she is on mission for her studies, our tours or for her private household. Besides touring with you in Vienna, she loves to travel and enjoys cooking for herself or for friends. And again, Sabrina never gets bored while cooking because she always takes the risk of exploring new recipes and new combinations.
Lucky Sabrina! She lives around the corner of the up-rising Fresh Food Market “Meidlinger Markt” where she can get all ingredients for being happy!
In a nutshell, true real flavors, pleasure & sport are the main ingredients for a happy Sabrina!
Katharina studied sociology and is an adventurous cook. Hence she enjoys looking at food culture from various perspectives. During her research at a little Viennese market place, she experienced how the enjoyment of culinary delights brings together different people and even may strengthen a community.
For her, consciously enjoying food means not only to activate all senses, but also to reflect the history and manufacturing of products. And it tastes the best when she can share her experiences in good company.
According to Anja her mother was the most influential culinary person in her life. From her, she has not only acquired her passion, but also great skills for cooking and baking. Today she still spends a lot of time in the kitchen and enjoys new recipes, products and flavors. Although she is grounded in the Upper Austrian cuisine, she adores traveling with exotic meals.
Besides her dedication for her studies of Art History, she has been working in various food-related jobs and is now happy to share her passion for good food with our guests.
