"Savory Sojourns...guides gastronomes to the city's best food."
Bennett Daviss, TWA Ambassador

"Addie introduced us to  famous chefs who toured us through their kitchens, directed us to ethnic markets in obscure neighborhoods, showed us where to shop the best local green markets.  We ate, we shopped, we ate, we toured, we ate.  Our only form of exercise was laughter, and Addie is good at making you laugh."
