Brooklyn Pizza & Italian-American Food Adventure!
When one thinks of Brooklyn, many things come to mind; the Brooklyn Dodgers & Ebbets Field (RIP), the Brooklyn Bridge, Ralph Kramden and the Honeymooners.
When NY’s First Family of Tour Guides thinks of Brooklyn, we think of one thing – Pizza! (Generally because we’re always hungry!) Take a privately guided tour of Brooklyn’s pizza joints – both famous and unfound – throughout the Borough of Kings.
We’ll skip the pizzerias where there’s always a line and take you to some of Brooklyn’s secretive pizza joints where the sauce reigns superior (L&B Spumoni,) the pizzaiolo is one of the friendliest people ever to slice a pepperoni (John Fruente, at Valentino’s Pizzeria,) and there’s never ever a line (Luigi’s.) Along the way we’ll discuss the difference between Neapolitan and Sicilian, why San Marzano tomatoes are considered the best in the world, the importance of water buffalo mozzarella for a superior pie and why the kind of oven used (brick vs. metal, coal or wood fired vs. gas) isn’t as important as as the ingredients. And just why they call it a Grandma pie!? But man (or woman, for that matter) can’t live on pizza alone! So we’ll also visit some old school Italian Salumeria (dry-cured sausage,) Latticini (fresh cheese) and Bakeries.
Prices of slices (and other assorted foods) aren’t included in cost of tour, but average less than $20 per person.
