Meet Jane & Fredrik aka Sticks & Spoons
Like many other couples, Jane (aka Sticks) and Fredrik (aka Spoons) met on the job. They worked in the same restaurant; Fredrik as Chef de Cuisine and Jane as a waitress. Soon they discovered a mutual passion for food resulting in some nice dinner dates with delicious food and drinks. Later also a passion for each other grew when Fredrik took some courage to kiss Jane under the influence of euphoria.
The first trip together was to Berlin. When Jane booked the flight for the 27th of December she booked the flight on the wrong date; the 27th of March! So they stood at the airport and had to buy new flight tickets. A perfect start for future food travels together.
And here's a Funny Fact! Kee Marcello; the former guitarist of the Swedish band Europe, had some trouble with his tickets and standing at the same counter. You can't book a ticket in your stage name - blame it on the Manager - because you must have the same name on the ticket and your passport! Good to know.
Then actually the second trip was some kind of separation. Jane decided to live and study in San Francisco for six months leaving Fredrik back in Sweden. It took about three minutes for Fredrik to decide that he had to go and visit Jane in the USA for a week midterm. The long-distance relationship only brought them closer.
Sticks and Spoons and a Bowl of Home-Made Ramen Noodles
The name Sticks and Spoons Food Travel fell into place after sharing a flavorful and spicy bowl of Ramen at home. The name is an obvious play with Jane's Thai Heritage and her fling for eating with Sticks, while Fredrik loves eating everything with Spoons - as many Chefs do. The connection between East and West is also present in the way they cook. Their style of Cooking is...well, an Asian Con Fusion with Western Influences...
And after that bowl of Ramen, food travel has been an essential part of Sticks & Spoons' lives together.
