Event Description

Culinary treats reach beyond Grecian shores in Astoria, as you will sample during a flavor-packed stroll through the Queens neighborhood. Each stop of the tour features a demonstration, shopping opportunity, or nibbles, such as honeyed baklava, nutmeg-laced bureks, fried haloumi, house-cured salumi, apple sheesha, and cardamom coffee. You will start the morning with Greek pastries and coffee, before sampling Bosnian bureks. You will continue to a Mediterranean grocery, where you will be able to fill you bags with assorted feta, olives, nuts, oils, and other culinary delights. You will walk by “old world” fish mongers and butchers whom locals favor, and enter an Italian market for a demonstration in sausage stuffing. A turn into the heart of Egyptian, Moroccan, and Lebanese cultures will set you among hookah bars and Middle Eastern specialty shops. You will rest our feet at a favorite funky Egyptian restaurant, to sample small plates. Join food writer and recipe developer Stacey Ornstein through the neighborhood she calls home. Bring your appetite and walking shoes…
