about us


We are Julie Marr and Francesco Creanza and we met in Puglia in 2014. Since then we have shared our passion for cooking and history by hosting workshops in Southern Italy, France and Vancouver, Canada.

E.A.T. embodies our philosophy of sharing time, food and stories around a table where everyone is welcome.

We recently purchased an apartment as well as a small parcel of land with 35 olive trees, fig, pear, pomegranate and almond trees in Oria, in the Salento region of Puglia. It is here that we hope to continue sharing our love of traditional food culture with all who pull up a chair to our table.
