My husband and I did the "At the Chef's Table" culinary tour and it was GREAT! The portions are extremely generous and food is fantastic. John does a great job weaving local history into the evening and being a gracious guide. I highly recommend.

If you like barbecue, this is the tour to take. I've never had BBQ like I've had on this tour. I recommend this tour to everyone, especially if you're from the West Coast and your idea of quality barbecue is Applebee's short ribs.
