Join Master Chef and Historian, Walter Potenza, in the discovery of great foods and history of Federal Hill in Providence. Our Premiere Food Tour will take you to different locations where you will be sampling Cheeses, Charcuterie, and Antipasti, while receiving a presentation on ingredients present in the repertoire of Italian Cookery. You will also learn food terminology, products information, how to shop, how to store foods and anything that may be of interest in expanding your culinary horizon. Throughout the walking event you will meet the people who make it possible for Federal Hill to be recognized as a food and historical destination in the USA. Your walking tour will end at Chef Walters Cooking School where Chef Walter will present an "Olive Oil & Balsamic Tasting", and a taste of the "Wine of the Day! After the tasting you will visit the Federal Hill Heritage Center Photo Exhibit of the first and only early Italian Immigration collection in Rhode Island. 

Customized Tours are available during the week for groups of six or more. Tour dates are added constantly. Visit at the Italian Heritage Center by appointment. Fee is $ 7 per person, donated to the "Chef Walters Juvenile Diabetes Foundation" 501(c)3 Nonprofit!
