Mangia Hoboken! The Hoboken Food & Culture Tour
Hoboken Tours announces the fifth year of 'Mangia Hoboken!' The Hoboken Food & Culture Tour. “We offer a weekly walking tour that offers residents and tourists a behind-the-scenes look at the world class food establishments that highlight Hoboken's Italian heritage.” said Tour Director, Avi Ohring. “The tour will focus on smaller family owned businesses where everything is still made in the back by hand and where you have a good chance of running into the owner. Unlike the New York City food tours given in Little Italy or the Lower East Side I think people will find this tour to be a more authentic experience.”
Highlights of the tour include Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop, home of the 'Cake Boss', the hit series seen weekly on TLC. One of Hoboken's wholesale Italian bread bakeries will be featured as well as two makers of hand made, fresh mozzarella cheese. There will also be stops at points of local historical interest such as the site of Frank Sinatra's boyhood home.
Tours will depart every Saturday afternoon from the Hoboken PATH station. The tour is about 3.5 hours in length and the $44 cost includes all food samples. Tickets can be purchased on-line at www.hobokenfoodtour.com.
