Owner, Guide and Event Host
Otehlia founded Madison Eats Food Tours in 2011, after spending years trying to create her ideal job combining her passion for local food, teaching, dancing, and sustainable development. What emerged is a business connecting people with Madison’s rich local food scene through exceptional food tours and events. Since moving to Madison in 1998 to pursue degrees in conservation biology and dance at UW-Madison, she developed an appreciation for the richness and diversity of our local food community and producers, and a great desire to share it with others. What started as a personal food blog, has since grown into a Madison Eats Food Tours, Madison’s premier food tour company that focuses on supporting local farmers, producers, chefs and food lovers through fun and engaging events. She also leads culinary getaways to Mexico, Cuba, Belize, Italy and more!
I look forward to sharing many culinary adventures with you!
