Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Steve Jobs inspired podcast, is a lady who from an air conditioned hotel room in Nicaragua found her path to a future that delights her, inspires her and probably makes her struggle to keep the weight off too.
Whilst whiling away the days watching the Food Network on television, she came up with a plan that would combine her passion for foods with her delight in travel...she would become the Urban Grocer.
Traveling the world she would seek out the kind of exotic foods that each country produces and weave it into a spunky informative and fun tv programme.
But if you think that her career history is one that is linked with the media and her delight in discovering and talking about amazing foods, then think again.
Way back in 2004, she worked in a restaurant in Boston prepping hot and cold first courses during and before service, but then amazingly left and became a script writer for the Russian Premier Mikhail Gorbachev.
Yeah really, how the hell did that happen?
I can't begin to imagine, but straight after that she jumped back into the food game, and hosted a Food Radio Programme in Switzerland called "Caitlin's Kitchen".
Getting the idea?? This is one of those shows where the dots of her life are quite difficult to tie up, but it seems true to say that even as a small child, working away in her mothers kitchen, she learnt to appreciate the delights of what we can place on our dinner plates.
And that has carried throughout her adult life.
And now with her latest venture, Porter and Sail, she is combining her love of food, and travel, with her passion for helping the discerning travellers to find the best of what is out there.
The hidden gems, that can help us all be world savvy diners.
So it is with huge delight, that I bring onto the show to start joining up dots ,the one and only freedom cooking entrepreneur Caitlin Zaino
