Food Tour made first time visit to The Little House in Boynton Beach, Florida

The Taste History Culinary Tour of Historic Delray Beach & Boynton Beach, Florida made a first time visit to the newly opened The Little House.  The petite Boynton Beach eatery owned by celebrated Chef Chrissy Benoit is located on historic Ocean Avenue in Boynton Beach, Florida. The food tour's premiere visit to The Little House was a great punctuation for National Culinary Arts Month which is celebrated in July. The Little House building is the former cottage home of Ruth Jones who was married to the late Mason Jones, a local farmer.  The historic 1930s building was relocated to Ocean Avenue by the Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to compliment their mission to revitalize Ocean Avenue which was the original Downtown in Boynton Beach.

Three eateries were visited for the tour plus the finale included a vegan dessert cooking demo and tastings by Jen Guffey of Sweet Infusions hosted in the culinary department at Macy's Boynton Beach, Florida.  Jen Guffey is a member of the non-profit Culinary Incubator Program at the Ocean Avenue Green Market/Secret Garden Cafe in Boynton Beach. This incubator program is very popular with a waiting list.
Take a look at the photos from the July 28th tour:

The Little House eatery in Boynton Beach, Florida located on historic Ocean Avenue was visited by the Taste History Culinary Tour.  The Little House is located in the historic 1930s Ruth Jones Cottage.

Gourmet Chicken & Dumplings was the food tastings provided at The Little House in Boynton Beach, Florida.  The origin of the American Chicken & Dumplings is Southern in its roots and dates to the Great Depression as the food was inexpensive to make using flour for the dumplings and boiling chicken and chicken bones in water to create a flavored soup. The Little House put a whole new fancy twist on this comfort food.

Jen Guffey of Sweet Infusions used Macy's Cuisinart Food Processor to create a vegan dessert, Raw Coconut Cream Pie, for the Taste History Culinary Tour.  The term "vegan" was coined in England in 1944  to mean "non-dairy vegetarian."

Jen Guffey of Sweet Infusions provided tastings of a savory vegan chocolate pie with strawberries at Macy's Boynton Beach for the Taste History Culinary Tour. Veganism is the dietary practice of not eating animal or dairy products nor any food with dairy or animal products.
