Culinary Tours, Food Festivals and More

Holiday weekend kicks off Taste History Culinary Tour series

Try a Taste History Culinary Tour this holiday weekend, as the summer series for this tasty pastime kicks off on May 28. For $45-$60 per person (children under 14 are free), you’ll spend four hours exploring historic districts with visits to bakeries, eateries, juice bars, tea bars and markets for tastings (such as Palermo Bakery in Boynton Beach, pictured), history and food culture. With your guide, you’ll meet restaurant owners, chefs and directors/artists of the cultural centers. Food tours board at Macy’s in Boynton Beach. The May 28 tour starts at 11 a.m. and will focus on Delray Beach and Boynton Beach. June dates: June 4, West Palm Beach/Lake Worth; June 11, Lake Worth/Lantana; June 18, Delray Beach/Boynton Beach; June 25, Delray Beach/Boynton Beach. Pre-payment is required, and tickets can be purchased here.

Pairings Food and Wine hits downtown West Palm Beach

From 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on May 26, the 5th Annual Pairings Food & Wine Event will take over Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. This event features more than 25 restaurants serving food and drinks, with proceeds from the $25 entry tickets going to the charity Families First of Palm Beach County. Palm Beach Dramaworks will offer 50 percent off tickets to any event before June 30, and there will be specials at local stores, and of course, live music all night.

Boston’s named to Florida Beach Bar’s Top 10 list

For the second year in a row, Boston’s on the Beach (40 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach, 561/278-3364) has made the Top 10 list by FloridaBeachBar.com. That probably calls for a celebration with Boston’s Pink Flamingo Cocktail (pictured, photo by Gyorgy Papp), so here’s a recipe for you:

Pink Flamingo

  • 1 oz. Bacardi Coconut Rum
  • .75 oz. Amaretto
  • 2 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 1 1/5 oz. Pineapple Juice

Garnish with Pineapple

Combine ingredients in a hurricane glass with ice, and stir. Garnish with a pineapple wedge.
