Discover one of the most vibrant ethnic neighborhoods in this country. After a brief overview of the local immigrant history and a description of Italian regional foodways, you will embark on a walking tour that is like a cooking class on foot: learn about how Italians eat; glean insider cooking tips; gain resources and knowledge on how to identify and where to buy the very best ingredients. This is a foray into the food traditions and marketplaces of the most authentic “Little Italy” remaining in America. Along the way, we’ll reveal why the Mediterranean diet is believed to be the world’s healthiest, and explain how to distinguish the “real deal” from the multitude of “fraudulent foods” flooding the supermarket shelves. (“Old world” as they are, many of the stores we’ll be visiting sell their products online as well.)

At nearly every stop, we'll enjoy small tastes of specific Italian food ingredients so you may experience benchmark flavors to incorporate in your own cooking and dining adventures. As you will see, gli ingredienti veraci - authentic ingredients - are the key to la Bellissima Cucina Italiana. It’s like visiting Italy—no passport required! Your world and dinner will never be the same.
