Born in Germany, Andrea Claudia Beck grew up in Salzburg, Austria. Marriage brought her to Vienna more than 20 years ago. She studied languages and fine arts in Vancouver before she began to organize events in Austria after giving birth to her daughter. Founding “Choco Vienna” was a child-hood dream, being the first and so far only chocolate fare in Austria. Knowledge in PR and marketing and a passion for cooking and international cuisine were the motivation to start “Vienna Cooking Tours”, guiding tourists through the famous Viennese “Naschmarkt” and teaching them how to cook a typical Austrian menu at her home. Andrea´s in-depth knowledge of adopted home town Vienna makes her an expert in passing on secret places and tips of the imperial city.
