People are exposed to so much in the food world through television programs, movies, food trucks, food bloggers, and so on. The American palate is more sophisticated today than ever before. People are searching for new food experiences, and food tours are a wonderful way to sample some of the tastiest food created by talented chefs and bakers in our area.

What is a food tour? A food tour is where people gather to be a part of a tasting experience. It provides an opportunity for people to sample sweet and savory food items from multiple restaurant and bakery stops along a walking route. A tour can take a few hours or it can last several hours. It’s also a place to meet people and share food experiences with like-minded folks. To sum it up, there’s a meeting location, introductions, sampling of food along a walking route, reminiscing about the fun just had and the tour ends.
"Food is one of the major symbols of the new togetherness in society."

My wife and I signed up for the Atlantic City tour for a Saturday afternoon. The guide, Audrey, was great. She took us to several local eateries andaround the Ducktown district of Atlantic City. We met with several people and proprietors of some of the stops, which was a nice touch. The history that some of those guests added to the tour was worth it's weight in gold. I, myself enjoy hearing about the local history of a place like that. The food was excellent at each stop. It was a very well done tour with a great mixture of food, facts, and fun people. Would highly recommend it as a fun thing to do while you're in town. (Trip Advisor, Reviewed by trussellk)

What a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon! Participated in the “On The Town Food Tours” Haddonfield adventure. With a little bit of history and lots of cuisine, I learned a lot about an area that I thought I already knew. Started out at Leaf, a vegan restaurant. Yummy brussel sprouts along with interesting tacos and buffalo cauliflower. Very tasty!!! Then off to beautifully decorated Sanook Thai Cuisine for a unique creamy coconut inspired chicken soup and a cucumber salad. Stops were also made at Duffy’s Fine Chocolates, a chocoholic’s delight and Sweet Charlie’s for rolled ice cream. So interesting to watch all the preparation that went into each ice cream creation. A trip to The British Chip Shop for some good comfort food on this very wet day. We had Cottage Pie as opposed to Shepherd’s Pie and learned the difference between the two. Delicious and so bubbly warm. One interesting stop was to a Cigar Shop/Club owned by Mitch Gorshin - Frank Gorshin’s son (the Joker from Batman). A man that truly loves hospitality, conversation and the company of good friends. Oh and a very homey environment to socialize and enjoy these comforts. Thanks Audrey for a great foody event. (PS – I’m stuffed!!!)

I always enjoy food tours and this one, partially due to the owner/guide, Audrey, really shines. The choices for lunch/tastings were diverse and each was delicious. What makes this tour a bit more special is the non-lunch stops -- a coffee shop and an olive oil shop both with extraordinary owners. Also there was a bakery stop, Dulce, which was worth the whole price of the tour. Its owner/baker is one of the most personable and interesting bakers ever who took the time to talk in detail about his endeavor. The sample croissant dulce de leche was devoured by the group, all of whom declared it the most delicious baked product, and he made it special just for the tour! Collingswood is a great little town and the walk with Audrey's commentary was an excellent experience. I think next time I will organize the walk with about 10 friends.
