Rebecca is an engaging, approachable and informative tour guide. She provides a wonderful look into one of Chicago's cultural gems - Devon Avenue - introducing us to food on the go (i.e. pastries and juices) and sit-down meals (lunch at Pakistani BBQ), while also giving us insight into the grocery stores and Indian history. Shop owners know her and therefore... 更多
This was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Rebecca is incredibly knowledgeable not only as a cooking instructor , but as a tour guide. We started in an old world Georgian bakery, shopped the small and larger food shops along Devon, ended with a great Indian lunch, stepping into the kitchen to see how the yummy Nan was made.... 更多
Rebecca's tour was great. My father-in-law is Indian, and I have been eating Indian food for over twenty years and visiting Devon, yet I still learned so much about the food and customs because of Rebecca's expertise as a chef who has studied in India. She made excellent choices for our samples of street food/snacks/vegetarian dinner and desserts. Each place... 更多

And most importantly, she filled our future to... 更多
Insightful and educational visits to restaurants, sweet shops, and markets - and left eating more great food than I could ever imagined. Her follow-up post adventure was excellent as well. She followed up with a packet of useful information and resources.
I have been on a variety of food tours and this is one of the best! Rebecca does a great job of incorporating the history of the Devon St. area, culinary traditions, use of spices and cooking techniques into a tasty and informative afternoon. Samples were plentiful, unique (in a very good way!) and delicious. All of the shop keepers... 更多

I'm a resident of Chicago for 20+ years, have been to Devon Ave. before, and I still learned a TON on this tour. What a treat! I can't wait to bring family members and friends from out of town. Rebecca includes history of the neighborhood in addition to samples of the delicious food and culinary insight into Indian cooking, so... 更多
