Walking Tours, with Merry White - North End


More and more people are engaged in “chowhound” activities, seeking out exciting and novel foods—even in Boston. Ours is a small, compact city with many layers of immigration and culture in neighborhoods that are easily explored, especially through their foodways. Boston University’s Professor of Anthropology Merry White will lead a tour of the North End that looks at food as a means of understanding urban identities and social change. Come prepared, rain or shine, for lots of walking and eating. Sessions will begin at BU and last approximately three hours (excluding travel time to and from the University).
