You’ve probably said—or thought—something like this before: This summer, I’m going to take advantage of the slower pace by exploring my own backyard—art galleries, historic districts, and restaurants, say, I’ve yet to experience in any purposeful way or perhaps never knew about in the first place (shame!).
If food/restaurants are a category that figure high on your list: Consider trying Taste History Culinary Tours—they touch down each month in Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Lake Worth—conducted by the Boynton Beach-based Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History...Click Here to visit story on PBDAILYNEWS.com.
The July 14, 2012 Taste History Culinary Tour made its first-ever visit to the Mango Inn Bed & Breakfast in Lake Worth, Florida. Delicious Mango-infused French Toast was served to the tour guests.
Also on the tour: galleries (with working local artists on hand) and other points of interest in Lake Worth’s downtown LULA arts district, including the 1921-built Hummingbird Hotel.
The Taste History Culinary Tours ($35; children free) of Lake Worth began this past spring after ones in Delray and Boynton began routinely selling out. Restaurants that have partnered with the tours are `rotated’ on the itinerary so no two consecutive tours include the same eateries.
The tours, sponsored in part by Macy’s and a couple of charitable funds, begin at 11 a.m. on the second, third and fourth Saturdays of each month. Tours of Delray and Boynton are offered on the third and fourth Saturday; Lake Worth/Lantana is on the second Saturday.

The family-owned George's Meat Market in Downtown Lantana, Florida used its own private label seasoning for the Chili cuusine samples made with beef which George's grinds on the premises.
Due to the exceeding popularity of the Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County, the first seven-months sold-out. To meet the demand for the culinary tours, more dates have been added with the tours being expanded to consist of food samplings in historic Lake Worth including Lantana in Palm Beach County, Florida. Therefore, the tours are held at 11am year-round on the second, third and fourth Saturdays of each month, plus private group tours are offered. The Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Delray Beach & Boynton Beach, Florida is offered on the third and fourth Saturdays of each month. And, Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Lake Worth & Lantana is held on the second Saturday of each month, year-round, effective April 14, 2012.
Taste History is sponsored in part by Macy's, the Patricia Ann Ravo Fund and the Boris & Edith Rueger Fund. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
