Trained as a social worker by profession, Linda Yellin accidentally stumbled across her new direction as operator of a tour company in Detroit. A longtime supporter of the city, and passionate lover of food, Linda volunteered to be a tour guide during the celebrations surrounding Detroit’s 300th birthday. She led groups through historic Eastern Market, and absolutely loved the experience, except for one thought that gnawed at her. She wondered how a tour of Eastern Market could be complete without food-tasting being a part of it.
