Taste History Culinary Tours: Palm Beach, Florida – The South Florida Sage

Taste History Culinary Tour expands its districts to add West Palm Beach’s new ‘cultural corridor’ (Belvedere Road) and Bakery Trail stretches from Delray Beach to West Palm Beach

Taste History Culinary Tour is a multi-district trip featuring emerging art, Florida history and cultural food.  The non-profit Taste History was established in 2011 and is the first culinary tour in Palm Beach County.  Taste History alternately features the unique flavors in more than 5 cities with cultural food tastings, local art viewing and history learning.

We were delighted to be invited back on the tour to check out the latest additions, see our experience below!

We enjoyed afternoon English tea accompanied by tea sandwiches, champagne and pastries! The Afternoon Tea was popularized in 1840 by the Duchess of Bedford.

Tea time simply would not be complete without scones and clotted cream! PS these scones, made in house, are known for being the best in Palm Beach.
