Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County, Florida | August 10 2013

The Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County, Florida program is a food eating, art and history experience offered by the non-profit Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History (MLFH) and sponsored by Macy’s. The Taste History culinary tour is a four-hour food-centric narrated bus and walking excursion (no more than six blocks of walking) through historic districts for alternate visits to eateries, markets, and an urban farm for food history, food culture facts, foodways information and food tastings. At least three to four eateries are visited per Taste History tour along with trips to historic buildings, cultural centers and art galleries. The tour partners include family-owned eateries and bakeries; and non-profit cultural centers highlighting local artists. These tours uniquely infuse with food tasting experiences the historical facts about the State of Florida, Palm Beach County and the cities of Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth and Town of Lantana.When the State of Florida was incorporated in 1845 it designated agriculture as the economy to develop. After Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway reached Palm Beach County, Florida in the 1890s, there was population growth. Some of those pioneer settlers were Germans and other European-Americans. Pre-dating the arrival of Flagler’s railroad and the Europeans were African Americans and black Bahamians who already had farms in Palm Beach County before the arrival of oil magnate Henry Flagler’s railroad. And before the settlement of the black population were Native American Tribes who included the Apalachee, the Timucua, Jaega and Tequesta. Each of these many cultures had their own distinct cuisine. The narration of the tour is by a live guide along with food tastings at eateries that reflects the cuisines of some of the pioneers.
