Visiting Boston II
The view of budding trees along Tremont Street at the historic Granary Burying Ground, resting place of Paul Revere.
We're having a taste of Summer in Boston this weekend. It seems the trees have all sprouted their buds overnight, the outside tables for alfresco dining have been set and everyone seems to be out and about enjoying the fine weather, dining and events.
The Quincy Market outpost of Puma City.
Puma City has been constructed at Fan Pier, a temporary store, restaurant, bar and nightclub put in place to celebrate the Volvo Ocean Race and their visit to Boston, the only U.S. location on the itinerary before leaving port to sail on to Galway. For the complete schedule of fun, cool events visit here: Puma City Events.
One of the questions we often get via email here at TBF is: where can I take a cooking class while I am visiting Boston on my trip? It just so happens that we have some great ideas for you.
We'd highly Recommend the Boston Center for Adult Education. With it's brand, spanking new state-of-the-art kitchens outfitted by Yale Appliance and local chefs to guide you how could you go wrong?
The new kitchens at BCAE.
If you want to spend some time in the kitchen with a celebrity chef, take a weekend course on budget meal preparation or indulge in locally sourced finds or wine appreciation, they have it all. Here's an example of a Saturday class that's one of the most popular:
