Hi! I'm so glad you're here!

My name is Melanie, and I am the creator of Savor & Yore. As you've probably gathered, I love food, and I really love history. My goal here is to help bring those two things to the forefront of your travels. I'm here to show you that the world's greatest cities are much more than insta-worthy landmarks and architecture. It's the events spanning centuries that bring them to life. It's the people. The long-gone revolutionaries and heroes. The world's most delicious food? It's more than just that; it's the perfect blend of secret ingredients and love passed down from generation to generation.
