By popular demand, the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council in Rhode Island is again sponsoring the "Secret Ingredient Food Tour," with spring venues featuring weekly behind-the-scenes events for the public at a number of eateries in the historic Blackstone Valley. The weekly tours, held on Wednesday nights from 6-8 p.m., give participants a chance to sample a wide range of ethnic food and cultural cuisine of the valley, through live demos and meals. Cost for most is $19.50 per person, not counting tax and tip. The tour kicks off April 4 and runs through June 27, and will teach stuff like how to make chicken piccata, Japanese hibachi treats, Mexican fare, French puff pastry, Greek spanikopita, oven-grilled pizza, Irish egg roll and more. On July 13, the making of A & W Root Beer will be explained at a great old-fashioned root-beer stand up in Greenville, and on June 27, the tour wraps up with a sunset cruise on the Blackstone Valley Explorer, where participants can munch on clam cakes and chowder. Spots fill quickly and reservations are urged. To do so, and for more info, visit www.blackstoneculinaria.com or call 401-724-2200.
