Are you at home during the pandemic looking for something foodie to do in Boston? Looking for a fun date night in Boston? Check out our top online food experiences that we discovered:
Here are some ideas on fun foodie online experiences:
Tasting Counter At Home
One of the best restaurants in Somerville near our Union Square Food Tour is Tasting Counter. In fact, they even had a popular kiosk inside the Time Out Market that we visited on our Fenway Food Tour. We were excited to see that you can still be inspired by their imaginative chefs through a curated cooking experience. For $125 you can have a unique 2 hour experience with a chef.
Mexican Street Food With A Mexican Chef
Mexico may be a short flight away, but these days we aren’t flying out of state. Elevate your next Taco Tuesday with this unique highly rated online foodie experience! If that doesn’t float your boat, how about learning how to make pasta with Italian grandmas?
Cambridge Adult Education Online Food and Wine Classes
We absolutely love partnering with the CCAE Cambridge Adult Education, and we are so sad that we aren’t currently able to host events with them in person. Checking out their foodie calendar, we learned they are offering amazing cooking classing during covid. You can learn everything from South African cuisine to how to make ravioli to Indonesian specialties to a whiskey tasting!
Do you like cheese? Right outside of Harvard Square in nearby Huron Village in Cambridge is the original Formaggio Kitchen, which is complete with an underground cheese cave where they age their cheeses. We were lucky to take a Cheese Tasting class at this location and learn all about pairings with crackers, jams, meats, and other items. It’s quite an experience to take it all in. And you can learn from the experts during their virtual experience — they’re also moving to a larger space nearby!
Buy Gift Cards to Our Local Food and Chocolate Tours
Our tours may not be running during the pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t support us and our restaurant partners. Purchasing a gift card not only helps us stay alive (vote with your dollars!) but helps us support our partner small businesses, from our web developer to our interns to our tour guides and restaurant partners. Food tours make a wonderful gift for a foodie, community minded friend, history buff, walking enthusiast, someone moving to Boston, or fellow traveler!

We love Italian food, and what’s better, Eataly will deliver all the ingredients to your door so you don’t have to go scrounging for the right things. After all, the ingredients are what makes this specialty grocer by the Prudential Center so well reknown. Learn a new type of pasta like oriecchiette or try your hand at a pizza. The full calendar of events is available here for Boston Italian cooking classes.
On our Fenway Food Tour we visited Mei Mei for our favorite double awesome which included two scallion pancakes and farm fresh eggs. Join Irene and Mei Mei chefs to learn how to make hand-pulled noodles, tofu, and dumplings among other treasures. You won’t be disappointed!
The folks at Juliet in Union Square, Somerville — we stopped there when we first started this tour — have been really creative during the pandemic. Their small team is offering unique events throughout the year including a murder mystery cook-along dinner and Valentine’s Day pasta event.
Dos Manos Kitchen
Have you ever wanted to make a pupusa at home? It’s a delicious griddled corn cake made with masa flour. Chef Edwin will deliver to you the hard to find ingredients, and you supply the rest in this unique 1.5 hour kitchen adventure!
ArtEpicure Cooking School
We have blogged about this Somerville cooking school before and are excited to share that they also offer virtual classes online. Located in the Brickbottom artists building near Union Square, the head chef Mark has wonderful attention to detail and will be sure to up your cooking game with his Boston cooking classes.
A stand out on our Harvard Square Chocolate Tour, we often partner with Flour Bakery! We love JoAnne Chang! Although they’ve done baking classes for years in person (hint: sticky buns) they are now doing virtual classes as well. You can even purchase baking kits right off their website for convenience or use a shopping list to purchase your own at your convenience. Sweet deal!
We cannot wait to be out there touring with you guys and showing off our partner restaurants and neighborhoods. If you want to be the first to know when we are back giving our tours again, please sign up for our newsletter at the website footer below, and we will email you as soon as we’re open for booking! Until then, we will be posting a lot of blog content for your reading pleasure.
