Your event guide will greet you at 275 River Street, outside of Psychledelicatessan. Taste of Troy is partnering with Amy Halloran, the author of The New Bread Basket and the first market manager for the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market, and the Arts Center of the Capital Region, to bring you Breakfast at Noon. Amy Halloran will guide us through the Farmers Market to meet the farmers who grew the ingredients selected for the savory and sweet crepes and waffles that will be enjoyed at the end of the tour. Then while Amy is off preparing our feast, Amy Koren-Roth (founder and forever foodie of Taste of Troy Food Tours) will set the historical stage of 19th Century Troy, including its special connection to a key kitchen tool and ingredient that will be used in preparing our breakfast feast. We will get insights into wine pairing for our meal at one of Clark Hospitality’s many Troy establishments – Twenty-Two 2nd Street Wine Company. Finally returning to the Arts Center to savor our breakfast and get insights into grains.

This year we wanted to do something special for my sister in law birthday, and selected Breakfast at Noon Special Event tour... We thoroughly enjoyed the tour from beginning to end thanks to Amy and her ability to engage folks in history, physical activity, nutrition, and fun!
