We have the details on what to expect and how to be inspired during your day on the TasteLAB tour. Bring your appetite and most importantly, a comfortable pair of shoes.
Food is best enjoyed in the right element. You want ambiance, you want architecture, and you want atmosphere. This area of town is home to a lively and emerging food scene, producing the perfect pairing for an experience you won’t feel at home.
You will begin at the west end of Old Towne with a vegetarian-style breakfast—you have to start off nice and light if you want to keep eating all day. Then you will attend a master class at a prestigious cooking school and participate in a sampling of unusually savory sausage creations.
The food and weather aren’t the only things to look forward to while on this tour—the community is a gathering place for an entire population of residents and visitors. The streets are lined with rows of antique shops, specialty dealers, art galleries, and unique eats. Eat up the culture and cuisine during your time in Orange.
Soak it in
After you eat, you’ll walk off some of those calories and go site-seeing through town. You’ll stop at several distinctive shops where you can discover a new style for the remainder of the tour.
If you’re going for a fancy day out, then you have to look the part! In-between your wardrobe change, you’ll receive an in-depth background on the historic Old Towne district and learn about the innovation and impact the area has had on the entire community for decades.
You’ll learn more about the town’s distinctive look that has made it an immensely popular location for producing films and television shows. If your curiosity is really getting the best of you, you’re centrally located right by Chapman University, Orange City Hall, and the Orange Public Library & History Center if you’re itching for more history. If you just want to relax and enjoy the weather, Ruby’s Streamliner Lounge is the perfect pitstop.
Keep it Going
Additional samplings include gourmet cupcakes, savory selections, Mediterranean cuisine, organic juices, and a house specialty at each stop.
The fun doesn’t end there! After a full day of exploring, you’ll cap it off with a sampling of cheeses, fine chocolates, and notable beverages. After one taste, you’ll already be planning your next visit. Luckily for you, you’ll have plenty of space in your refrigerator to bring home any leftovers.
Given this much creative innovation, you’ll be sampling, testing, and asking for seconds. If you decide to make any purchases or try your hand at any of the recipes at home, Howard’s Appliance has all kinds of appliances to enhance your cooking experience and keep your food fresh. Stop in today and we’ll find the right appliance for you.
