Our Story

Angela Shen


Hey there, I’m Angela Shen, a self-proclaimed “food evangelist” with a love for all things delicious and wild! Growing up with a chef for a dad and working in family restaurants, food has been my jam since forever.

After graduating from the Wharton School and working in Brand Management at Quaker Oats, I ditched corporate life and headed to Seattle.  Since 2007, fresh seafood, wild mushrooms, and local wine have been my most trusted companions! I founded Savor Seattle Food Tours and took a liking to showing off Seattle’s best restaurants and artisans. 

Today, I’m all about immersing myself in Washington’s wild side and sharing it with you through Savor the Wild Tours. When I’m not hunting for wild treasures, I’m with my awesome kids, globetrotting, or crushing HIIT workouts. And of course, I’m forever team raw oysters, tacos, sushi, coffee, and eggs – just keep that durian away!

Beyond the wild adventures, I dabble in business consulting and speaking gigs. My thing? Entrepreneurship, culinary tourism, scaling businesses, and rocking it as a minority female leader. Also, you might spot me on the Visit Seattle Board. So let’s eat, explore, and laugh together on this wild culinary journey!
