Caryn Cook


After returning here after high school in California to attend Johnson and Wales University for a career in Travel and Tourism, Caryn quickly reconnected with the draw of Rhode Island, family, friends, food, and culture. She has spent the past 20 years working in viticulture and tourism, traveling (and eating) her way around the globe, taking guests from the US, Canada, and UK to various places, including the South Pacific, Spain, Portugal, Alaska, and the Pacific Northwest. Her favorite part of touring is making new relationships and introducing people to that off the beaten path hidden gem. She is thrilled to have given up globe hopping to focus now on introducing people to those things back here at home. Such great food, so many different ethnicities, so much history, so many stories… all that makes this smallest state in the union so unique and special.
