FOOD TOURS WITH HANDS ON UPGRADES

You’ll get a behind the scenes look at the San Francisco culinary scene on our private 4-course progressive meal, while hearing the stories of chefs, restaurant owners, and culinary experts. Each 3 hour private food tour visits 4 restaurants – with each course served at a different restaurant and thoughtfully curated by our team. For the Hands-On portion of the progressive meal, we will enhance one of your 4-courses to offer a hands on culinary activity such as a mixology lesson, a truffle making experience, making your own spring rolls, stretch your own pizza dough and add toppings.
