Upcoming Fun Foodie Events
As we move into the busy holiday season you may want to mark your social calendar, before it gets too pencilled up, with some fun food events in and around Boston. Here's a few we found that we are adding to our busy agenda. There is something here for everyone and, given the economy, we've chosen those events at little or no cost.
Shalimar Indian Foods and Spices Tour
On the first Saturday of every month Ranveer Brar, Corporate Chef of One World Cuisine (and featured in our blog just this week) leads a one-hour tour with tips on using Indian spices holistically. The tour is followed by a sit-down lunch at Dosa Factory, the new casual eatery located at the rear of the store. Get out there and meet some fellow foodies exploring international cuisines.
