Suzy Brings You the Peru
Food and Beverage Scene
Hello, I am Suzy and I am going to show you Peru. I am a savvy hotelier, travel and events guru, culinary enthusiast, self-taught nutritionist in that order, having worked for a total of 10 hotel resorts, 4 travel companies and 13 restaurants to date. Being a health and fitness buff, I practice Pilates every other day, but my daily indulgence is in lifes purest and simplest pleasure food! Glorious food!
I started my hospitality career in 1984 as sales executive for a beach and country club, handling events, corporate meetings, conventions, company beach outings and banquets then moved on to a hotel resort management company of 6 varied properties at Philippines key locations, doing more of the same thing but six times over! To learn and practice other areas of Marketing, I accepted the offer of a French cosmetic and beauty company. It was more of a break (no work on weekends) than working as I go to malls more often than not!
Having learned the ropes of brand and retail management, I returned to the tourism industry via hands-on job for a travel agency and later went back full circle to the hospitality business managing a pioneering small resort at one of the worlds best beaches, Boracay. Stayed on for the next 10 years in this little slice of heaven, managing 2 other resorts, a transport and tour operations company. Since then, I shifted to work as independent consultant in hospitality, travel, marketing and events, with bases in Singapore and Philippines. My 3 years in Singapore has exposed me to the amazing flavors and spices of Southeast Asia. Last 2005 I moved to Peru and since then embarked on a culinary adventure like no other!
