What you'll do
Lisa, Tori, Joshua, Rebecca, Quinn, Emunah or Travis's two-hour tour of the Ferry Building : * First you'll meet your host in front of the Ferry Building and sign a liability waiver - get the boring stuff out of the way first. * Then you'll hear all about the history of the Ferry Building and its transformation into one of the world's greatest food marketplaces. * Tastes of savory or sweets from Frog Hollow Farm and background on Farmer Al and becoming Alice Water's preferred stone fruit farmer. * Sample fresh spring rolls at Out the Door and hear about Charles Phan's success story from refugee to restaurataur. * Organic cow's milk cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery paired with ACME bread and become enlightened about milk sheds and land trusts. * Learn the difference between a chocolate maker and a confectioner. Taste single origin chocolate from Dandelion Chocolates. * Find out the secret to what's in Secret Breakfast ice cream at Humphry Slocombe and finish off with Parisian macarons better than what you get in France at Miette.
My name is Lisa Rogovin and I created Edible Excursions, a San Francisco award-winning walking food tour company, 15 years ago. I'm passionate about people, history and our amazingly diverse region and how it's had a sweeping effect on the global food movement. I got my start while working for Gourmet Magazine (RIP). I'd take guests of the Four Seasons Hotel. All of my hosts are food industry professionals - food TV alumni, chefs, longtime restaurant workers and award-winning food writers. Either one of my talented hosts, or I, myself, will host the Ferry Building tour.
The food you will be served at 7-8 artisanal shops is equivalent to lunch. Food samples are substantial and will leave you…
