Savor Oakland to Launch Walking Food Tours

For the past couple of years, we’ve heard murmurs about how Oakland has emerged as America’s next great food city, which isn’t exactly news for those of us who eat here every day. But heck, if New York Times shout-outs aren’t enough to convince you — if it isn’t enough that culinary heavyweights from Syhabout and Patterson on down have anchored their growing restaurant empires here — then how about this: In the not so distant future, tourists from far-flung locales might travel to Oakland for the express purpose of participating in a walking food tour of the city.

At least that’s what Oakland residents Carlo Medina and Geneva Europa envision. Next week, the husband-and-wife tandem will introduce Savor Oakland, a new food tour business designed to celebrate the city’s food, culture, and history — and to help rehabilitate its image.
