“For me, food started at birth, and maybe before then,” Sandi Lessert said to me over the phone. “I guess it’s so much a part of our family, I kind of wonder how much of it’s in your DNA.”
I’ve been collecting our customers’ stories as they relate to food, life and travel. Sandi, who took all three Tasting Kauai food tours with her husband, Jay, and their close friend, Dave, said food is important when she travels because she has to eat, so she might as well eat well. She also said food has a way of connecting people, and it’s a great way to get to know local culture.
