Eating New England Series with Adam Centamore

July 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


When it comes to food, New Englanders have got it made. Our part of this world is home to some of the best locally-made beers, wine, mead, cider, cheese, meats, chocolate, nuts, pickles and other savory and sweet treats. What’s the best way to explore this wide world of locally-made culinary delights? By tasting them, of course!

Join professional foodie and author Adam Centamore for an evening getting to know your tasty neighbors. You’ll eat amazing finger foods and sip succulent beverages from purveyors right here in Boston Public Market. Plus, you’ll learn the basics of buying, storing, serving and pairing all your favorites.

Each tasting experience is one hour long from 6:00-7:00 pm.
