All-in-One Food, Culture & History Tour


Taste History Culinary Tour delivers an engaging mix of Florida history and local history, culture, art and several tastings in unique off-the-beaten-path areas in Northwood Village/West Palm Beach; Lake Worth and Lantana; and Delray Beach and Boynton Beach. Lori J. Durante, Executive Tour Director, developed the non-profit Taste History Culinary Tours as an extension of the Narrated Bus Tours of Historic Delray Beach that began in 2004. Since combining the culinary and narrated tours, more than 10,000 people have been hosted, to date. “I took the Narrated Bus Tour and enriched it by adding food tastings which morphed into the Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County”, says Lori J. Durante Taste History incorporates a rotation of cuisine tastings representing varied cultures that are African American, Southern American, Asian, Brazilian, Caribbean, Continental, Latin American, Greco-Roman, Italian, English, French, French Canadian, Mediterranean, Irish, Australian, New Zealand, along with farm-to-table and organic tastings. Offered year-round, the tours are four-hour food-centric narrated excursions by bus plus maybe four to six blocks of walking through historic districts 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 or art galleries. The non-profit Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County, Florida has been designated one of the official community event partners for the State of Florida’s Viva Florida initiative and is offered by the non-profit Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History (MLFH).Taste History is sponsored, in part, by Macy’s. Additional support for Taste History has been received from Carl and Iris Apfel; and bequests from the late Patricia Ann Ravo and the late Boris & Edith Rueger.
