  • Daytrippers: Federal Hill Food Tour

    Daytrippers: Federal Hill Food Tour
    The storied Federal Hill section of Providence isn't lacking in good taste especially if you walk the walk. On Federal Hill there's a tour where the historic meets the caloric. For the past nine years pastry chef Cindy Salvato has run the epicurean adventure called "Savoring Federal Hill." "It's all about the food, no matter what anyone tells you," Salvato said, "on the tour we go into five different shops, we meet owners, go into their kitchens, we hear their family stories, and we eat the entire way." The first stop is Venda Ravioli which is part market and part restaurant. Meats and cheeses glimmer as the stars under the lights in the vast counters at Venda and with an array of exotic varieties, Venda Ravioli claims to have perfected the pasta pocket (pumpkin, chicken-walnut, sun dried tomato-- all winners). Manager Michael McLynch said, "you come into Venda in Federal Hill, it's no different than you coming into my house, you come in, we eat, we talk, everything revolves around food, it's all part of our heritage."
