For a culinary and educational experience like no other, look no further than Local Roots Food Tour’s new Market-To-Plate Executive Chef’s Tour, running select Wednesdays and Thursdays through October. Your small group will be guided through a downtown Sacramento farmers market, either Cesar Plaza Farmer’s Market or East End Capitol Park Farmer’s Market, where you will chat with vendors and learn about what’s in season and how to choose and prepare fresh ingredients. From there you head to Morgan’s Restaurant for an exclusive three course lunch prepared by Chef Michel using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. The lunch will be up close and personal with educational elements. Your meal will also be paired with a select local wine. As if that wasn’t enough, your tour will then head to Sugar and Spice Specialty Desserts, just a short walk from Morgan’s. You will meet the owner Chef Jones, take a tour of her award winning bakery, soak up knowledge of how to bake the best pastry using fresh local fruits from the market and best of all, indulge in some of her delicious creations. All of this for only $45 per person! Register early, as the tours do fill up fast, and be prepared to walk about one-and-a-half total miles in a two-and-a-half-hour time frame.
