After years of globetrotting and exploring different cuisines, Gerla decided she wanted to share her wealth of knowledge and experiences. More than that, she wanted to share her beautiful hometown Cambridge and introduce more people to all its culinary delights. Gerla is a self-confessed foodie, and she has walked many miles in and around Cambridge, likes to go off the beaten track and loves a good tipple!
Gerla started the award-winning Cambridge Food Tour in September 2012 sharing her love of food and Cambridge with locals and visitors to Cambridge. If she is not eating her way around Cambridge, you can find Gerla on her allotment or cooking up a storm.
Creating exciting food tours in Cambridge hasn’t come overnight. At the age of 13, Gerla was bitten by the travel bug. She mapped out the journeys for family and friends and made sure that food was always on top of the agenda.
In 2019 she decided it was time to share her fantastic trips and favourite recipes on her Food and Travel blog.
Over the last 35 years, Gerla has covered a fair share of our beautiful planet. The plan was to visit new places and revisit her favourite destinations over the next few years. Slight change of plan for now. Instead, there will be lots of staycations for the foreseeable future.
Head over to her Food and Travel Blog – Gerla de Boer or follow her on social media on FoodieGerla for food and travel inspiration.
Gerla de Boer is the local specialist in creating unique food tours and events. Her food tours leave her guests talking about them for a long time after they finish, something that can only be achieved through her in-depth knowledge of the local food scene and close partnerships with local businesses.
It is all about you! Gerla designs her food experiences around your requirements and favourite food and drink. She likes to think outside the box to produce the ultimate event and, with such a booming food scene, it will be fun, exciting and most importantly, delicious!
‘We had a great time thank you! Will definitely be visiting Cambridge again…what a lovely place for foodies!’
