Taste History in Palm Beach County

By: Jodi Mailander Farrell


Eat your way through the past on a Taste History Culinary Tour, a four-hour narrated bus and walking excursion that stops at restaurants and historical buildings in Palm Beach County to give visitors a sampling of local fare and culture.

Held monthly, the Saturday public tours visit eateries, as well as historical buildings, art galleries and cultural spots in Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth and Lantana. The cost is $40 per person. (It’s free for children under 18 accompanied by adults.)

The range of cuisine featured includes farm-to-table, organic, African American, Southern American, Latin American, Brazilian, Caribbean, Greco-Roman, Italian, English, French, French Canadian, Irish, Australian, New Zealand, Hungarian, Turkish and Ancient Mexican. Most of the three to four restaurants visited on each tour are locally-owned or family-owned.

Florida history is woven into the narrated tours, which involve bus riding and four to six blocks of walking. There are more than 30 restaurant partners visited on a rotating schedule. Guests meet restaurants owners, as well as local artists and cultural center directors.

Sponsored by Macy’s, the tours are offered by the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History, a nonprofit in Palm Beach County. Private tours are also available.
