All the Yummy Details

Hold on to your taste buds! This 3-hour gourmet tasting adventure in the heart of Philadelphia will introduce you to tastings of 5 decadent and gourmet treats at 5 of the city’s best foodie destinations!

Your friendly and knowledgeable guide will start you off at the iconic Reading Terminal Market for an insider’s highlight tour that will introduce you to the market’s history, layout, and stops at 3 food havens, not to be missed. Your “gourmand’s-eye view” of the market will have you zipping through the aisles like a seasoned market regular. Your Reading Terminal Market visit includes:

  • MeltKraft, for a gourmet version of a classic American sandwich featuring a lovely melty combo of brie and cranberry chutney
  • Kamal's Middle Eastern Specialties, for a delicious assortment of hummus, baba ghanoush, grape leaves, falafel, and couscous.
  • Beiler's Donuts (on Saturdays) -OR- Flying Monkey Bakery (on Sundays), two of the market’s sweet spot, will have your heart aflutter after one bite of their featured bakery treat. Be it Saturday or Sunday, both options will make your mouth super happy!

Next up, a visit to Philadelphia’s most famous gourmet superstore, Di Bruno Bros. During our 8-block walk to the posh neighborhood of Rittenhouse Square, your guide will point out significant architecture and a few hot restaurants to add to your “Must Visit” list. In Di Bruno’s renowned cheese cave, we’ll lavish you with hearty portions of 4 fantastic farmstead and imported cheeses. Your guide will share the inside scoop on how cheese is made, and we'll answer all of your questions about selecting and serving cheeses! We’ll arm you with the confidence to approach any cheese shop like a pro and the skills to throw together one killer cheese board at your next party!

The sweet finale to your adventure is a visit to the best gelateria outside of Italy, Capogiro Gelato. Here’s your chance to test your taste buds during a blind tasting of 6 luscious gelato and sorbetto. As you indulge, we’ll dispel some common myths about gelato and share fun facts about how it’s different than ice cream.

This Tasting is perfect for individuals, couples, families and out-of-town guests! Great for Birthdays, Anniversaries, and dates! With more than 2.5 hours of indulging and less than 20 minutes of walking, this is perfect for people of all abilities.
