PostHeaderIcon Food tours can be good for businesses and neighborhoods|SacBee Blog

Local Roots Food Tours was recently written up in the Sacramento Bee’s Appetizer Blog by Blair Robertson.   READ THE BLOG HERE.

Highlights of our walking food & cultural tours in Sacramento and what they are providing to the local community and businesses is spot on.  One of our biggest goals in offering walking food tours in the Sacramento Region is to bring more awareness to the community of what is behind the next door in Sacramento’s cuisine, the fantastic fresh local ingredients being brought in from local farms and showcasing the incredible history by exposing the roots to where it all began.  The most prevalent comment we receive in our reviews by tour participants is; “Wow, I didn’t even know that existed and I have lived down here for over 20 years”.

Our walking food tours, as stated by Blair Robertson, are a “Win/Win/Win” for everyone involved.  Knowing our company is expanding within the next month to more pockets of Sacramento as well as some great towns outside of the grid is very exciting.  We are moving in the direction we were hoping for and the reception has been amazing by our local communities and businesses.   Our summer months walking food tours have been very well received by locals as well as quite a few touring families who are looking to learn more about Sacramento and its amazing local roots!  Private group tours are always an option : Birthday, Anniversary, Bachelorette, Cooking and Book Clubs, Company Team Building…put a theme behind a food tour and we will guide and cater to your group’s needs.   Tours launch every Tues, Thurs, Friday and Saturdays.  6 different locations, great food and refreshing drinks included in ticket price.  Advanced ticketing is required.  Midtown Food Tours will be launching in August.  Keep checking back for more details on tickets and food tour menu teasers.

PostHeaderIcon Walking Food Tours Aren’t For Everyone…Or Are They?

Walking food and cultural tours are being offered in cities all around the globe.

Walking food tours are not for everyone.  Don’t bother going on one if you are the type of person who:

1.  Would rather be inside in a stuffy office or house than be outdoors in the fresh air.

2.  If you simply don’t like to eat and try different types of food. You find food boring!

3.  If you enjoy eating out of a can or bag rather than fresh local ingredients prepared by an artisan chef just for you.

4.  If you are a loner and hate being around anyone.

5.  You could care less about the history of the city you are living in or visiting…learning about “the roots” sounds dirty to you.

6.  You don’t deal well meeting new people, making new friends/contacts. Shaking hands with chefs and restaurant owners sounds lame.

7.  Humor to you is like nails across a chalkboard…..jokes are not a part of your vocabulary nor do you like hearing any.

8.  Finding out where hidden gem eateries are and where great value meal offers are is a total waste of time and energy.

9.  You have a fear of getting lost even though a trained guide would be leading the way.

10.  You prefer to be in groups of more than 25 people at a time feeding off the same tray of food instead of your own personal fresh serving.

If you WEREN’T able to check off any 10 items above then WALKING FOOD & CULTURAL TOURS are just the activity you might be interested in participating in!

Learn more about your city’s great cuisine, architecture, history and culture all in one tour.  Traveling this summer?  Make sure to Google the city you are visiting and see if any walking food tours are offered.  It’s a fantastic way to get to know the city you live in, are visiting or hope to live in in the future.    Here is a listing of some Walking Food and Cultural Tours offered in some fun and tasty cities.  Check them out!

PostHeaderIcon Alfresco Dinners in Fields a Roving Culinary Adventure!

Every summer, Outstanding in the Field hit the road to bring farm to table cooking back to the source.  Their mission is to re-connect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it.  Owner Denevan and his crew of cooks, servers and coordinators travel all across America and beyond.  They host alfresco dinners at long tables in the middle of farm lands; whether it be a cornfield, pasture or vineyard, they set up a creative long table, chairs and all place settings.  Uniqueness at its finest!  Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure – literally a restaurant without walls.

Chefs from nearby restaurants in the area they are offering the dinners create dishes from local ingredients.  Just picked berries, organic greens, free-range meats and local wines just to get you started.  Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table.  It takes a lot of ingredients to make a farm dinner. Some of the more important ingredients are people.  Farmers work hard throughout the growing season, reap the harvest and take it to market for all of us to enjoy. Food artisans and chefs transform the harvest with creativity, respect for ingredients, attention to craft and a desire to give nourishment.  These are the people that make it all possible. These are the wonderful people who have dedicated their lives to work that benefits us all.  They grow, nurture, create, ferment, chop, boil, bake and plant their way into our lives.

The purpose of Outstanding in the Field events is to recognize these contributions to the table.  As the sun sets, guests grab plates, sit down and meet their table-mates.  While consuming their five-course meal with a local wine pairing the guests will be educated on where the food comes from and a chance to chat with new friends until the rooster crows!  This year Outstanding in the Field is putting on dinners in 30 states plus Canada and Europe.  For tickets, visit http://www.outstandinginthefield.com

I was impressed with the fact that our various dietary needs were taken into consideration. The weather was perfect! We so lucked out! Can\'t wait to do it again .
