Audrey Giannattasio admits she has plenty to fill her plate following her tasty entrepreneurial endeavor.

Giannattasio founded Boston Food Finds (BFF), a one-stop shop that provides readers with Boston’s latest food industry news.

BFF allows Bostonians to discover the best culinary cuisines in the Commonwealth while offering information about cooking classes, markets, food trucks, afternoon teas and food gifts and prime-time features.

In addition, BFF conducts food tours in Boston and Cambridge.

Giannattasio, a former Cambridge School of Culinary Arts student, launched BFF in January following a tour of food tour featuring visits to several major U.S. cities. The BFF founder noted she wanted to share her food expertise with Bay Staters.

“I’d like to take the best of what I’ve experienced and bring that to Boston,” Giannattasio said.

Giannattasio has gained a major following for her efforts, thanks in large part to the use of social media. BFF boasts more than 1,100 Twitter followers, but Giannattasio said her marketing approach has been a work in progress.

“I kind of get my feet wet little by little,” Giannattasio said.

Giannattasio noted local residents can take a Beacon Hill/Back Bay food tour, which allows them to experience some of the area’s top culinary delights such as Savenor’s MarketScampo and Beacon Hill Chocolates.

“Each tour has to make sense with the flow,” Giannattasio said. “It starts with an appetizer, ends with a dessert and has entrees in-between.”

New tours will fulfill local appetites soon as BFF will launch a trip featuring locations surrounding the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy and historic Harvard Square.

Giannatasio emphasized the Beacon Hill/Back Bay tour remains a walking expedition, but BFF will explore mobile trips in the future.

“We want everyone to be able to partake in these tours,” Giannattasio said.

Giannatasio said tours allowing attendees to visit Beantown’s restaurants and farmers’ markets at non-peak hours by beginning at 1:30 p.m.
