Ultimately I’m a storyteller. I love to immerse myself in the moment, learn about new cultures, live out experiences, listen to people’s stories and then share them. I’m comfortable with all platforms from print to digital and multimedia broadcasting.
I’m an author, a food, lifestyle and travel journalist with an active online and social media presence. I’m very proud of my organic community on Instagram with 49,200 followers in the AB market, aged 25-45 following my adventures and musings on @stephaniezubiri . I also have library of food, travel and lifestyle videos on http://www.youtube.com/stephaniezubiri
My column in the Philippine Star – Feast with Me – has been running now for more than 9 years. I am also a regular contributing writer for Travel+Leisure Southeast Asia as well as other regional and international publications such as Silkwinds and Silverkris magazines and Cebu Pacific SMILE. I also wrote the 1/3/5 guide of Conrad Hotels for Manila http://manila.stayinspired.com/collections/home .
I’m fortunate enough to host two TV shows one of which, Modern Living TV, is currently on it’s 10th season and is the longest continually running lifestyle show on Philippine television. A spinoff of my book “Feast With Me” is currently airing on Cignal One News as a segment in the show “Let’s Eat!” and you can find all videos on my YouTube channel here.
I love wine and have justified my penchant for drinking lots of it with a Wine and Spirits Education Trust Level 3 certification. I’m also a mom of two and I believe in encouraging more people to cook at home and celebrate with every meal.
I lived eight years in Paris where I graduated with a License in History and Geography and with a Masters in Geography from the University of Paris IV – Sorbonne. I also graduated from a summer program in London School of Economics in Sustainable development as well as Basic Cuisine from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. I love languages and I’m fluent in French and Filipino and as well as conversational in Spanish and German.
