Love European markets? Seattle’s Pike’s Place Market? Philly’s Reading Terminal? San Francisco’s Ferry Building? Then this tour is for you!
Boston Foodie Tours’ (“BFT”) focus is our city’s rich history, culinary education, and “award-winning best eats”, including those of Best of Boston winners, James Beard Award winners, food institutions, and the like. BFT has been awarded the 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and maintains a 5-star guest rating on Yelp.
Boston’s Market District, extending three short blocks from Faneuil Hall to the indoor Boston Public Market, incorporates the old and the new. The old includes historical Faneuil Hall, the first Meeting Hall in the country; the 300-year-old Blackstone Block, where our forefathers gathered in pubs; a nearly 200-year-old outdoor “farmer’s-like” market; and the oldest, continuously-running restaurant in the country. The new includes the 2015-opened Boston Public Market, with its nearly forty local vendors. A visit to Boston simply wouldn’t be complete without a stop here. And even newer is Milk Street Cooking School. Founded by Christopher Kimball, formerly of American Test Kitchen, Milk Street is home to his cooking school and magazine, and is where he records his television and radio shows.
Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of the new Boston Public Market, where we’ll meet with several of the nearly-forty vendors, and will enjoy small tastings throughout. Representative stops: a favorite New England doughnut, roasted nuts, fresh honey, wine and hard ciders (soda for the under-aged), drinking vinegars, and Boston’s 2016 Best of Boston Fish Market winner. Stops include two of Thrillist’s 2016 Food Bucket List honorees.
Before departing the Market, we’ll shop for farm-fresh ingredients, which we’ll bring to Milk Street, where we’ll participate in a one-hour cooking class. The cooking class will include one hands-on recipe, and one small demonstration recipe. Christopher’s team promises a fun and interactive hour ending in a “really” delicious plate of food.
Join Boston’s tastiest food tour as we “Stroll. Sample. Savor. Repeat.” our way through the city’s best eats, and then slip on our aprons to cook a farm-fresh, seasonal meal.
