Moreover Best Food Tours NYC says snow peas are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg during the winter months. This unique vegetarian food tour is now leading groups of foodies on a winter adventure through the heated underground expanse of NYC's Grand Central Terminal. And at the helm of this vegetarian escapade are Best Food Tours NYC's own Dr. Pete and Dr. Stew licensed NYC tour guides aka the Comical Nutritional Aficionados.
“During the winter months when it's cold outside Grand Central Terminal is the perfect location to discover some of New York's most interesting vegetarian delights,” says Dr. Stew. “With an array of different food shops, restaurants and markets, nestled in one of the most historic indoor locations in the world, it sets the tone for one heck of a Grand Central vegetarian food adventure.”
Unlike other food tours that simply let participants sample different foods, Best Food Tours NYC actually delves into the nutritional benefits and some of the fascinating history surrounding a whole variety of vegetarian foods Moreover by using a whole slew of audio visual technology this tour actually shows and tells where some of our favorite foods came from as well as their continuous evolution over the centuries. Which in the case of the snow pea is quite a crunchy piece of history.
“When you mention snow peas to people they usually think, hey those are veggies I find in my Chinese take out,” says Dr. Pete. “But this amazing edible pea actually was popular in Europe during the 1800's prior to ever being stir-fried. But when this amazing pea was initially introduced to China it spread like wildfire and was quickly incorporated into their cuisine. In fact the very name “snow peas” came about because these hearty legumes were harvested during the winter months and they could often be seen covered with snow.”
So if you feel like delving into some vegetarian delights this winter, then head indoors to Grand Central Terminal and join Best Food Tours NYC -- they definitely know how to stir-fry things up!
