A good tour guide knows all of the context for the sites, sounds and smells that they show - Chef Jacqui was a first-rate tour guide and went above and beyond, to the point where she told us the backstory of the concrete embossing on the South Philly sidewalks I asked. Our tour included amazing coffee at Anthony's, cheese and proscuitto at DiBruno's, the flat out best olive oil and balsamic vinegar we've had at the Taproom, San Ramon's tostadas and tortillas and VERY hot salsa, a stop into a pasta shop for some homemade mozzarella that will make you question any other cheese, lunch at Ralph's and pastry at Isgro. We left full of outstanding food and taste experiences but more than that, Jacqui gave us a feel for the neighborhood, the shops, how the community has progressed and expanded in the last 100 years, and explanations for everything. You know the feeling when you're with a friend who is really passionate about something, and they get you into the fold without being over the top? That was our morning in the Italian Market. It's also the only tour that operates every day, so if you want a little early in the week meat and cheese festivities, this is your choice.
Jacquie led our VIP tour yesterday and she knows the people and places that make up this South Philly jewel. My 3 friends and I had an amazing time getting an up close and personal look at the Itslian Market. We learned so much about olive oils and cheese and meatball making! Delicious tastings all along the way. After the tour, my friends and I circled back to the shops and each headed home with shopping bags full of goodies.
