What to Expect

A one-of-a-kind Food & Cocktail hands-on group adventure. RoanokeFoodTours_LOGO_3C-™ copy

What’s one step better than sharing a delicious Naples-style pizza, a classic Italian cocktail, a glass of Chianti and a Prosecco toast with friends?  We know the answer! It’s making the pizza and cocktail yourself.  Of course, with the inspired guidance of a renowned local chef and a nationally recognized craft cocktail bartender.  It’s a perfectly tasty adventure!

Be the maker!

You don’t need to be a bonafide foodie to enjoy being behind the counter in the kitchen at Fortunato!  You’ll wear the chef’s apron, you’ll get your hands in the dough and flour.  You’ll feel the heat from the 800-degree pizza oven.  How about mixing up a classic Negroni cocktail, stirred not shaken please!  With a flamed release of orange peel oils on the rim –   yum!  Then gather and mingle with friends to enjoy your own creations.

Feed your brain too.

What is a Naples-style pizza anyway?  Doesn’t the term “Neapolitan” mean an ice-cream style?  What is ‘frizzante’ Prosecco? How did the Negroni cocktail get its name? And what legendary American writer named his dog Negroni? Answers to all these questions await you, along with humorous anecdotes and fun pizza knowledge.  We believe in feeding the stomach, brain and soul!  That’s our recipe for a memorable group experience!
