Have a Taste
By the time we got to Palermo’s Bakery in Boynton Beach, we were stuffed, so it was fitting that the food set before us was a platter of stuffed bread. Semolina bread, stuffed with broccolo or chunks of sausage or strips of roasted peppers. It was good, and we all managed to stuff ourselves a little more. And oh yes, with miniature cannolis too.

We were on a historical and culinary tour of Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, and by this point we had eaten shrimp in remoulade, a Jamaican sampler (curry goat, jerk chicken, BBQ ribs, cornbread), pizza, mini cupcakes, macarons (French cookies), and whatever we’d bought for ourselves at the Delray Beach green market.

Culinary tours offer a brief symbiotic relationship. Guests get to sample food from various eateries without committing to an entire meal, and the businesses introduce themselves to people they hope will come back later. A friend who joined me for the tour was so enamored of Sundy House — our first stop — with its gorgeous tropical gardens that as soon as she sampled the shrimp remoulade, she texted her daughter that she’d found the spot for this year’s Mother’s Day brunch.
The tour has about 30 partners, so the stops rotate and each tour is different. Guests ride a bus to most stops and walk between some.

The Palm Beach tours — another one goes to Lake Worth and Lantana — are a bit different from most culinary tours. Put on by the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History, they also include a hefty dose of history and culture. We learned about the history of Delray Beach’s historically black neighborhood, the churches, Henry Flagler and his railroad, and other key figures in the town’s history. We also stopped at the Art House of Delray, a nonprofit gallery.
