Culinary walking tours of Boston’s Little Italy and Chinatown with Boston Food Tours

Food, Travel


Becoming more informed is the key to eating well with Boston Food Tours. Participants get an insider’s view of Boston’s ethnic communities, alive with colorful immigrant history, undiscovered hidden gems and great food.

 Boston, MA March 26, 2012 – For 17 years Michele Topor, owner of Boston Food Tours, has been introducing tourists to Italian food culture on the North End Market Tour in Boston’s Little Italy. Knowing that most people are a bit intimidated by the Chinese neighborhood and its markets, a Chinatown Market Tour was added 5 years ago. Both tours have now become the most popular food tours in Boston.  

On these culinary walking tours the emphasis is placed on learning how the two cultures eat, how their food was adapted to this country and most importantly how to identify and where to buy the very best ingredients. Along the way, your guide will also share a bit of neighborhood history, simple but special cooking tips, tastes of specific food ingredients and the best-kept secrets of neighborhood restaurants. Participants get an insider’s view of these ethnic neighborhoods, alive with colorful immigrant history and undiscovered hidden gems and great food.

 Tours are offered to the North End on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and cost $50.00 per person. Chinatown tours are Thursday and Saturday and cost $65.00 per person (dim sum included).

 Trained as a professional chef, Michele Topor (a 40 year resident of Boston’s North End) has taught cooking, catered, and consulted on Italian food since 1979. Michele’s cooking classes, market tours and culinary trips to Italy have been featured on television (including TVFood Network, HGTV and CNN), on the radio, and in various national and international publications.
