Delicious History Lessons:
Taste History Culinary Tours on July 21 and 28

As Lori Durante leads a small, sweating pack of culinary tourists east on Atlantic Avenue on a recent Saturday afternoon, she breaks her swift stride momentarily to point across the street, toward Johnnie Brown's, a burger and barbecue joint in Delray Beach.

"Johnnie Brown's was named for Addison Mizner's famous pet monkey," Durante says before resuming her brisk pace and leading the group to its next tour stop at Scuola Vecchia Pizza e Vino, peppering the remaining walk with other tidbits about the ever-changing landscape of downtown Delray Beach.

Durante, director of the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History, is the creator and guide for the museum's thrice-monthly Taste History Culinary Tours. The next tour is planned for 11 a.m. Saturday and will include multiple stops in Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, many of which involve tasting regional and international cuisine...
