Mid-Week Menu: Food Tours in Temescal, a Suspicious Fire in Alameda, and New York-Style Cheesecake in Berkeley

Welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our weekly roundup of East Bay food news.

1) A San Francisco-based food tour company is making its first foray into Oakland: According to Diablo Dish, Edible Excursions will be launching a tour of the Temescal neighborhood early next year. The tours will be led by local food writer Sarah Henry, who told me the three-hour Taste of Temescal will cost $75 and will include samples of “signature bites” from eight to ten different purveyors. Potential vendors include Doughnut Dolly, Beauty’s Bagel Shop, The Sacred Wheel Cheese Shop, CRO Cafe, Sura, and the Sunday farmers’ market (including the Cholita Linda and Starter Bakery stands). Henry said the tours will start in March. The news comes on the heels of newcomer Savor Oakland having launched a Jack London Square walking food tour a couple months ago.
