Sabina was born in the “ eternal city” Rome, but has lived in various countries. She moved to Munich in 2012 and now calls this her home. She obtained a degree in Music criticism in Geneva, studying at the “Universitè de Genève”. She also worked as a tour guide of the United Nations Office from 1991 to 1996 before moving back to Italy to continue a role in tour guiding and events management. In 2016 she attended the prestigious “ Doemens Academy” in Munich and obtained a “Diplom Biersommelier”. This award qualifies her as a trained expert in the world of beer: she knows her brews, their history and what food to pair with what beer. She loves sharing with her clients her knowledge of Bavarian history, point of interests and of course her beer and food knowledge. She’s traveled extensively through Europe, USA, Japan and Brazil.

Before beginning this phase of his professional life, Stefan worked for more than eight years for the picture agency StockFood as a content manager and editor with a focus on food, beverages and interior design. Besides his many other projects, he now also writes for different travel guides like Spotted by Locals, Aux Villes Du Monde and Nectar & Pulse. His cookbook, published in March 2017, is called „Angemacht & Weichgekocht“ a guidebook for singles who want to impress their date with easy yet delicious dishes.
