This was a wonderful tour. I learned so much about our local resources and am excited to go back on my own. I also learned quite a bit about chocolate production and cheese co-ops. Come hungry because you will be well fed.

Great orientation to those new to the food delights of North Berkeley, and great fun to take those from out of town. This was my third time on this tour, and it's different every time.
