Tara saw a square melon as a kid and became obsessed. Young, wonky fruit turned to neatly stackable produce. How? As an adult and restless citizen of a globalised world, she wondered if this odd idea could be used to direct personal growth: put yourself in the container of a city, give yourself time and grow to change shape. She relocated for a month each to Lisbon, Shanghai, Lima, New Orleans, Singapore, Cape Town, Rome to test this theory and find that sweet spot between tourist and local. In Athens she encountered Travel Food People and joined us shortly after.
