“Little Italy” in Boston is filled with history, ethnic heritage and authentic Italian food. A growing number of Italian food enthusiasts have felt excluded from our regular Market Tour experience due to celiac or gluten sensitivity issues. Our North End Market Gluten-Free Tour now makes this experience accessible to everyone.
This 3 hour tailored version of our classic Market Tour is like a cooking class on foot: 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. Enjoy the colorful sights, tantalizing aromas and authentic tastes in this old- world community.
While visiting 5 specialty food shops, you will enjoy small tastes of specific Italian food ingredients, so you may experience benchmark flavors to incorporate in your own cooking and dining adventures. Your guide, Rebecca, an expert in living without gluten, will provide you with many cooking tips on how to adapt the healthy Mediterranean dietary principles to enhance a gluten-free lifestyle.
