Taste History Culinary Tours is All About Eating and History

Executive Director Lori J. Durante started the Taste History Culinary Tours in 2011, and her business continues to grow and add sites each year.

These tours highlight different flavors in each area with visits to restaurants, bakeries and more. During the trip, you learn about the history and architecture of South Florida—it’s an immersive cultural experience, and the one I took a couple of years ago introduced me to some good eateries.

Trips to West Palm Beach, Lake Worth and Lantana are rotated with Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, and all happen on Saturdays. You need to reserve ahead of time, and you’ll travel in a bus and do some walking between shops, too. Tickets range from $51 to $60, free for kids under 14.

All the tours start at 11 a.m.; 561/638-8277; tastehistoryculinarytours.org
