Our story. Message from the Founder

Gastronomic Tourism is on the rise. It has become one of the most dynamic segments in the tourism market. In fact, over a third of tourist spending is on food.

According to UNWTO the world tourism organisation, Gastronomic Tourism is an “experiential journey related to a particular lifestyle that includes experimentation, learning from different cultures, the acquisition of knowledge and understanding of the qualities or attributes of culinary specialities produced in that region through its consumption”.

Before I started this lifestyle as a full-time Gastronomer, I had spent a decade in Hospitality. My servitude saw me undertaking many roles.

I started pulling pints in a dive bar and washing dishes in a small kitchen and at my peak, I served my own seasonal cocktails to Cate Blanchet, hosted a private wine dinner for Crime writer Peter James and even been tipped by Bruce Springsteen for my coffee skills. 

My tenure in the world of Gastronomy has given me incredible insight and my extensive network fuels my content today. I’ve practised sabrage with a Champagne flute at GH Mumms exclusive Windmill and had a private dinner for 3 at Hennessy’s Private Mansion, Chateau Bagnolet with their global ambassador Jean-Michel Chochet.

I’ve had coffee with Famed Chef Marcus Waering in a garden and I’ve even talked on length to Caroline Rosen, the president of Tales of the Cocktail about gardening! 

And that’s why I started Gastronomer Lifestyle. To be a trusted voice and guide for those wanting to explore the world through their own taste. And to learn from the experts about food, drink and travel.

Sincerely, Christopher Menning

“Hospitality is much more than good food and drink. It's about celebrating culture, creativity and sharing experiences ”
