Our owner, Lisa Armstrong, was invited to 96.9 Eagle by Public Affairs Director, Kat Maudru to talk about our walking food and culinary tours.  Kat has some terrific questions for Lisa and threw in a few tidbits or two!  The primary theme was Local Roots Food Tours mission of getting back to the roots of our surrounding communities’ agriculture and history.  Our trained tour guides get each tour participant to slow down and SAVOR each fresh signature dish and LEARN more about the chef’s passion in each dish created at each of our stops as well as what mom and pop owners believe makes them unique in their eateries.  Each participant is encouraged to EXPLORE these hidden gems in Sacramento’s beautiful neighborhoods all while CONNECTING it all together……the roots of our food and the roots of the people who make up our amazing communities.

Our summer food tours are in full swing; we offer Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Friday and Saturday tours.  We begin early in the day and end before the heat is at its peak in downtown.  90% of our tour route is under shade with Sacramento’s beautiful tree-lined streets.  Each location  is air conditioned and serves refreshing ice water (or chilled wine!).  Take advantage of our SUMMER SIZZLE TICKET SPECIAL from now until JULY 5th.  Use discount code:  “SIZZLE” to get 25% off our regular adult ticket price!

As they say at Eagle 96.9;  “ROCK ON!”   Hope to see you on a food tour this summer!
