I’ve been super busy researching all of the fantastic stops for the Spring 2011 tours. The Fork and The Road did a culinary tour to Bedford and to parts of the Laurel Highlands last fall, and both were terrific, but there’s always room for a little tweak here and there. The number of high quality artisanal foods in these areas just keep increasing and it’s so hard to decide where the tour bus should go. So hard and so fun!
New this season is the Italian themed tour. Of course, lots of testing of all of the stops and products is in order, so as soon as there is a day without ice and snow, I head out on Route 30 to investigate all things food. I’m not giving away any big tour secrets, but I can say I’ve been sampling dark chocolate truffles, freshly made cheese, delicious pasta, crunchy biscotti and a variety of pasta sauces. Oh, and a little vino always enters the picture, too. The Italian tour is a mix of “old school” and “cutting edge” cuisine. Good stuff. We’ve already had quite a response to this tour, so we’re doing two of them instead of just one.
The small tour size (18 people max.) allows us to have a more personal experience at out stops . . talking with the chefs, store owners or vintners. So don’t delay in signing up. A few tours are close to capacity. For more info, click on the Tours tab above. For even more info or to register, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 412.576.1755. Hope to see you on the bus!!
