Annie Sibonney Bio

A food writer and lauded expert on Spanish regional and haute cuisine, Annie Sibonney has spent the past five years eating her way through Spain in search of the most memorable meals and ethereal culinary pleasures. Along the way, she has forged relationships and friendships with world-renowned chefs, local characters, food critics, historians, winemakers and artisans, all rooted in a shared love for celebrating life through memorable food, wine, travel, friends and experiences.

Born to French-Moroccan parents and based out of culturally rich Toronto, Sibonney has traveled the globe in pursuit of culinary adventure. Her mastery of five languages, including Spanish, has allowed her to fully explore some of the richest gastronomic centers of the world including Morocco, France, Egypt, Spain, Italy, Peru and Mexico.

While completing degrees in Hispanic studies and Spanish-English Translation, she opened Flavours, a boutique catering company that specialized in creating dishes inspired from her journeys and experiences abroad, using ingredients and flavor profiles significant to a particular country or culture and doused with innovative and creative flourishes.

Annie launched Relish Culinary Tours in 2007, which designs exclusive, fully arranged, escorted gastronomic excursions to Spain and Italy for private groups and individuals as hungry for adventure as she is.
