    Little Italy in South Philly
    Alice_E, May 2023
    We had a wonderful afternoon and early dinner. Jacquie is a lifelong resident of the area and knew so much of the history and evolution of the market area. She made yummy recommendations for snacks at the shops and for dinner. I loved the Nutella Cheesecake. Plus, her suggestion for Cheesesteaks was right on. At the end of the tour, other guest member and I mixed up our purchases. Jacquie helped us get in touch, so we could switch out.

    Thank you for your 5 star review Alice. I am so happy you had a wonderful afternoon on my food tour. I am ecstatic that you were able to catch up and trad bags with the other couple. I look forward to our next foodie experience. Cheers! Jacquie xo
    Spectacular Cuisine!

    Highlight of our weekend in Philadelphia. Jackie's knowledge was impeccable. The flavors of Philadelphia's Italian heritage that she guided us through were amazing! We will repeat this anytime we return. The food and conversation were irreplaceable. Cucini Maria restaurant, OMG!
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Awww, how sweet. I am thrilled my food tour was your highlight when visiting Philly for the weekend. Thanks for your 5 star review. I look forward to our next foodie encounter. Cheers! Jacquie
    Now that’s Italian!

    Chef Jacquie helped me make my wife’s birthday special by leading us on a walking and tasting tour of the iconic Italian Market in South Philly. It was a group tour, but it became a private tour since we were the only ones who signed up for the weekday tour. We sampled cheeses and other goodies from two cheese shops; pastries, candy, tea and espresso at a coffee shop, and enjoyed a leisurely dinner of salad, crusty Italian bread, melt-in-your mouth gnocchi, and tasty meatballs at Cucina Maria (plus our BYO wine). Throughout the walking and the eating, Jacquie educated us about the history of the Italian Market from the first immigrants to today. She was the perfect host and guide, and we’ll probably take another tour she offers of a nearby neighborhood. She also inspired us to attend the Market’s annual festival in the third weekend of May. Thanks, Chef Jacquie

    Loved this!

    Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

    My husband, son, son's girlfriend and I took this tour this past Sunday and absolutely loved it! Jacquie was very knowledgeable about the area as well as the food. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and the food was amazing (I will never use regular American balsamic vinegar ever again!). I highly recommend this tour! Sue

    Hey Sue! Thanks for the review and I’m tickled pink that you will never use it again too - Hope to see you again soon on the Philly Food scene Cheers! Jacquie
