While we hope that the number one food activity on your list when you come to Boston is to take our Sweet & Savory South End food tour or our Allston Arts & Eats tour (or both!), this city is brimming with food activities. If you are looking for even more to do, why stop the food fun with our tours? Make the most of your time here by eating your way through the city and maybe getting a little hands-on or educational experience while you’re at it. Here’s a list of cool food events that are going on in Boston this fall.
Boston University Metropolitan College Programs in Food & Wine
This series, associated with BU’s Gastronomy Masters program, offers a variety of informative and engaging activities to the public. Each year a new group of seminars are offered, all providing a unique food experience. Included in the series are hands-on demonstrations, tastings, and wine pairings. You can view the full schedule and purchase tickets here. Things kick off this year on October 11th with an event called “Beer vs. Wine – With Cheese,” taught by Ihsan Gurdal, owner of Formaggio Kitchen, one of our stops on the South End Sweet & Savory Tour. Any time spent in a room with him is time well spent, especially when there is food and drink involved!
Formaggio Kitchen Classes
Speaking of Formaggio Kitchen, the cheese authority here in Boston, they offer a great series of tastings and classes at their Boston locations. Find the list for upcoming events at their South End location this fall below. See full descriptions of the events and buy tickets here, and check out the classes at their Cambridge location here.

Their instructors are very knowledgeable and the classes are always fun, especially the eating part! You can find the full calendar of classes here.
The KITCHEN at Boston Public Market
The Boston Public Market is a hot spot when it comes to specialty and local foods, the smells alone of what’s cooking and baking could keep you there for hours. As if they needed to be any more awesome, they have a separate kitchen space, conveniently called The KITCHEN, where they host classes and hands-on experiences that are geared around highlighting local farmers and artisans of the area. These events are held almost every day so check out the offerings here.
