 Wherever I May Roam reviews Taste History Culinary Tours

I am a huge fan of food tours. And history. And art. Combine all three and you have a trifecta: The Taste History Culinary Tour. Located in Palm Beach County (South Florida), this six-year-old food tour in South Florida offers three different established tours to choose from, in West Palm Beach, Delray & Boynton, and Lake Worth & Lantana. The tours run each Saturday and are 3-4 hours in length.
On my visit, which I scheduled weeks in advance because they sell out, I did the Lake Worth & West Palm Beach itinerary. My friend Griffin accompanied me. Tasting the local flavors of the Palm Beach areas was a delight.

  • Taste History is a food tasting tour, with art and history combined. Food portions are hearty and most people are full by the end of the tour.

The mission of the tour includes incorporating education about food culture and food history with the food tastings thus dietary restrictions cannot be accommodated.

Effective May 2018, $51 per person is the new rate for the public tours traveling to Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth and Lantana; and  West Palm Beach.  Free for children under age 14 (children must be accompanied by a paid adult family member). Children age 14 and over pay regular price. Due to the increased operational costs and insurance, an increase in our tour fees is necessary.

Fees are inclusive of all food and visits to cultural centers and art galleries. All sales are final. No refunds.
