Jamie Barys and Kyle Long

Jamie, one half of CB’s Shanghai team, has been a resident of China since 2007. A native of Tennessee, Jamie believes that the best way to get to know a culture is to eat your way through it. Whether she’s exploring Shanghai’s hidden hole-in-the-wall restaurants or sneaking back into kitchens to snag behind-the-scenes recipes, she’s always hungry for more. Never one to keep a good thing to herself, Jamie can be found leading culinary tours to delicious best-kept secrets with UnTour Shanghai, the city’s top-ranked food tour provider, and writing about her tasty finds for Glutton Guide, a guidebook series designed by foodies for foodies. Kyle, one half of CB’s Shanghai team, is an Oregon native with a hunger for finding the city’s best noodles, dumplings and just about any type of dessert. He’s been sharing his love of authentic food and drink with his writing since moving to China in 2007. After co-founding Shanghai’s top culinary tour company in 2010, he took a sabbatical to cycle the world (well, 15 countries) and clocked in 18,000km while raising funds for clean water charities. When he’s not running or cycling to make room for more Chinese food, you can find him scouring the web for cheap flights for his next trip.
