On Monday, October 26, 2015, destination management professionals and hotel concierges will enjoy a cultural culinary tour and tasting through Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth and West Palm Beach. Hosted by Taste History Culinary Tours and sponsored by Macy*s and Iris Apfel, attendees from Embassy Suites, Marriott Hotels, B Ocean Hotel, Ocean Penthouse Vacation Rentals and the Chesterfield Hotel will be introduced to the area’s newest sights, trends and tastes.
“Food has new fame especially its authenticity so it’s a leading fact when travelers select a vacation destination,” notes Lori J. Durante, Executive Tour Director of Taste History Culinary Tours. Ms. Durante developed the nonprofit Taste History Culinary Tours as an extension of the Narrated Bus Tours of Historic Delray Beach, that began in 2004 and has hosted over 8,000 visitors. Both the culinary and narrated tours have hosted over 10,000 guests to date.
Sponsored by Macy*s, Kingston Fresh, Carl and Iris Apfel, and Patricia Ann Ravo Fund, the Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County program is a food-eating, art and history experience offered by the nonprofit Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History (MLFH). This culinary tour offers visits to historic Northwood Village, West Palm Beach and Lake Worth on the first Saturday of each month; Lake Worth and Lantana on the second Saturday of each month; and historic Delray Beach and Boynton Beach on the third and fourth Saturdays of each month at 11am. Private and team-building tours are offered during the week.
