It put a bunch of my loves together, eating, learning and mingling, and now if you haven’t experienced Taste of Troy food tours, I’m sorry to say that you’ve missed your chance.
Taste of Troy Food Tours started, as the name suggests, in Troy. Not only did you have the experience of trying a taste of some amazing local eateries but also learn about the area. It was a relaxing few hours for locals and tourists alike. Then, after the success in Troy, the tours expanded to include Albany as well under the same formula. As businesses changed in the respective cities, as did the tour.
As Amy Koren-Roth, the owner, said in the announcement email, “My travel buddy husband and I plan to explore the world as retirees. It is my hope that food tourism will continue in the 518 and that there are others who have a similar vision. I am open to speaking with interested parties who may seriously want to pick up where Taste of Troy Food Tours has left off. Please feel free to share this opportunity with others who may be a good fit. This is “last call” and the weekend of October 28th and 29th will be the final curtain call for Taste of Troy Food Tours.”
It was an honor to have experienced Taste of Troy Food Tours in the beginning and to watch it grow. The void will definitely be felt in Albany and Troy and hopefully, we have something similar to take its place but nothing will be quite like a tour from Amy.
