About: Alexia Gonzalez
Hi! My name is Alexia and I'm a very hungry girl with a huge appetite for food, travel and adventure. Since childhood, I've had a passion for literature and all things culinary, always with a keen eye for flair and a curious taste palate. Born and raised in Miami, Florida to parents from Cuba and Spain, I've always craved new cultures and flavors. Traveling the world has allowed me to relish in one-of-a-kind foodie experiences, from Michelin star fine-dining and fondue on the Swiss Alps, to cooking in the jungle with Mayan locals and foraging for mushrooms in Italy -- I'm pleased to mark St. Petersburg as my latest edible adventure and I can't wait to share all of this incredible city's flavors with the rest of the world!
