This is a great tour to take. Not only did we learn a lot, we also had a great time. Our tour guide was very funny and very knowledgeable about the food as well as the city. I highly recomend this.

We had a lot of fun at this event! Robert and his gang are really fun. As one that already knows a lot about food science, culture and history, I stepped away knowing a lot more! The dialogue is funny and informative, the food delicious and the atmosphere was casual. I bet the food tours would be a great first date scenario or date in general. My fiance and I went to the tasting event and it was a nice Valentines Day activity, a little different from the norm and totally educational and fun. We will definitely do a tour together in the future!

For Valentine's Day this year, I wanted to do something different , not just go out for another traditional dinner. So when I saw the City Foods Aphrodisiac Tasting event, I thought that sounded interesting, fun, and something that would pique my husband's interest. I wasn't wrong. It was a different experience, romantic with a good dollop of fun and humor. We also learned a lot about the history and chemistry (pun intended!) of foods and nutrition, with some easy and tasty daily recipes thrown in. Although the event was held in a Home Store, the decorations and ambiance were inviting, including mood music. It was a little like being on Rachel Ray or Emeril's TV show, but more intimate and more entertaining. In all, I surprised my husband, we both had a good time which set the mood for the rest of a romantic evening. Thanks, Robert and Eric and the rest of your staff.

This tour was A LOT of fun and the food was great. It provided an opportunity to learn about where the foods originated and also network with other "foodies". I highly recommend this tour.
