From Boston Public Market to artisanal breweries and gourmet shops in Halifax, our exciting new Culinary Discovery Tours™ in Canada and New England invite you on chef-led adventures that explore some of my favorite epicurean hot spots in the region. As Riviera travels along the New England coastline and the Northeastern coast of Canada this fall, we set out to design a set of new Culinary Discovery Tours™ that would bring the heart of the region’s culinary traditions to life and showcase the Northeast’s unique ingredients, dishes and innovations. This fall, we’re excited to introduce three brand new tours that dive into the local food scenes, take you on chef-curated tasting adventures and celebrate classic dishes.
Below is a sneak peek at our new tours – we can’t wait to explore these culinary meccas with you this fall!
