We start our tour with Italian bites and a glass of bubbly at a favorite local restaurant and bar. We visit with local clothing designer and a make up artist for tips and fashion trends. Our next stop takes us to a restaurant where the theme is female brigands of Southern Italy. Nosh on authentic Italian bites! Cider at a local craft bottle shop and a meet and greet with a sweet pastry chef and CIA graduate. You choose from her bounty of savory and sweet treats. Finish the night off with a limoncello tasting. This South Philly native is the first woman to own a distillery license in the State of Pennsylvania since Prohibition.
Hey there! I'm Chef Jacquie, owner of StrEATS of Philly Food Tours, formerly Taste 4 Travel Food Tours. I am a native of Philly and feel very lucky that I lived in both South Philly and the Chestnut Hill area for a major part of my life. I am a a professional chef and I have whipped some of my favorite passions together--food, people, and Philly--into a Food Tour Company dedicated to serving up knock-out guided food tasting adventures in the City of Brotherly Love. I trained at the prestigious Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, and I’m an acting board member of the Philadelphia Chapter of Les Dames d’Esoffier, a philanthropic organization of women supporting women in the food, fine beverage and hospitality industry. I'm warm, fun, and more than a little saucy.
