Meet Your Tour Guide
Always up for a good adventure, comestible or otherwise, T.J. let himself run amuck around the globe for much of his adult life.
He has been bit by a piranha in the backwaters of the Brazilian Amazon, flown next to a cow on a cargo plane in Colombia, been offered marriage to a Kenyan Maasai tribesman’s daughter in exchange for a water tank and cow, and has swum in the frigid waters of Antarctica, just to name a few exploits.
Like his travels, his palate reaches far and wide. Once calling Beijing home, he has an affinity for China’s ningmeng ji (lemon chicken) and man tou (a steamed bun served with sweetened condensed milk). Not one to shy away from whatever might be on his plate, he has also experienced guinea pig, baby sparrow kebobs, coagulated duck blood, and a heaping plateful of fresh, crispy frog skins!
Ask him the best continent for grazing, he might say Asia. Favorite drink? Brazilian capirinha or Ethiopia’s tej, the local honey wine. Both could knock you off your feet. And for dessert? Ice cream from balmy Maine.
He looks forward to showing you around downtown Winter Park, a magnificent place
