Join Inquirer food writer and culinary treasure hunter Rick Nichols for a tasting tour of his favorite South Philadelphia haunts. Delight in the output of the mysterious copper pots in Phil Mancusos basement, try out the specialties from the charming eatery, Le Virtu, that occupies the Italian Newspapers former home, sample goodies from a bakery with roots in Cambodia via Paris and much more. This private guided excursion offers tastes and stories straight from kitchens of South Philadelphia's rapidly diversifying culinary main street!
Rick Nichols is a Philadelphia native. He graduated from the University of North Carolina and worked on the newspaper in Raleigh. After a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard, he joined The Inquirer in 1978. He served as a member of the Editorial Board for many years and has won several journalism awards.
