Palm Beach Gardens, FL Historical Society hosted on Lake Worth-Lantana Culinary Tour

Check out the photos from the June 30, 2012 Taste History Culinary Tour of Historic Lake Worth & Lantana. This private tour was hosted for 20 members of the Palm Beach Gardens Historical Society.  It marked the first time a historical society took a tour of the City of Lake Worth and Town of Lantana.  The bonus for this food tour was that these special Palm Beach Gardens Historical Society members were warmly greeted by the City Manager for Lake Worth, a current Lake Worth Commissioner, the Director of the Lake Worth Library, Co-Chair of the Lake Worth Centennial plus the first African American Commissioner for the City of Lake Worth.  In the Town of Lantana the tour guests were welcomed by representatives from the Lantana Historical Society, the Lantana Chamber of Commerce and a welcome letter was received from the Mayor of Lantana, FL.

The specially designed June 30th gastronomy tour traveled to the Sabal Palm House Bed & Breakfast for Organic Tea provided by Barbara The Tea Specialist and homemade Scones created by the innkeeper. The tour continued to The Cottage Restaurant, The Juice Bar, Brogues Down Under Irish Pub, The Tortilleria and George's Meat Market. Art galleries and cultural sites toured were the Lake Worth Art League Gallery; the Lake Worth Historical Museum, the Clay, Glass, Metal, Stone Gallery; the historic St. John's Episcopal Church and the historic building for the Lantana Chamber of Commerce. The guests from Palm Beach Gardens patronized many of the businesses and galleries visited for the tour.

Pavlova Pie at Brogues Down Under in Lake Worth. It's believed that this Australian/New Zealand dessert was created from the Merengue Pie in 1926 in honor of famed Russian Ballerina Anna Pavlova upon her tour of Australia and New Zealand. Brogues Down Under is an Irish Pub that specializes in Australian, Irish and New Zealand cuisine.
