lunch speakerSpecial guest: Valerie L.S Albarda

Valerie has been a lover of all things food, including writing about it and devouring it, for many year. As an ardent traveler who thrives on the sights, sounds, culture and cuisine of the places she visits – both U.S. and abroad – Valerie concedes that while she may not cook like a world class chef, her inner gourmand compels her to dine with a passion.  She shows her appreciation for food by chronicling her culinary journeys near and far on her blog, Bon Vivant.

She is the author of three books, including her most recent title, “Gettin’ Back to Happy,” as well as “From City to Safari: One Woman’s Exploration of Johannesburg, South Africa” and “An Affair to Remember: Bellissimo Italia”
