Craft Food Tours was founded in 2016 as a way for us to express our deep appreciation for our family, friends, community, and life experiences. We have been very fortunate to have traveled all oversampling some of the best cuisines in the world and now feel it is our duty to share with you our favorite travel hobby, Food Tours. Whether you are a local or tourist visiting Delray Beach, we hope that you spend an afternoon with us sampling the best food and drink South Florida has to offer!
Early 2016 on another foodie adventure in Austin, Texas, Craft Food Tours the idea was conceived. Both of us had already done various food tours prior to this trip, but something just felt special this time around. The Craft food and beer scene in Austin opened our eyes to a new world. A world of high quality, locally sourced food and drink. A world of CRAFT.
We began to look into opening our very own food tour in the fastest growing foodie town we know. We reached out all over the country to other food tour operators and they led us to Shane Kost at Food Tour Pros. Shane is the founder of Chicago Food Planet and owner of Food Tour Pros. We took his two-day workshop, which was a comprehensive guide to the Food Tour Business.
As soon as we got back to Delray Beach the fun began! Tasting our way through this awesome beach town has truly been a pleasure. Every corner there is something for everyone to enjoy. The city loved our idea and the restaurants could not have been more welcoming.
"If you come to a fork in the road, take it."
Meet Our Founders
Since graduating college, I have been globe-trotting while sampling some of the best cuisines the world has to offer. With 15 food tours completed, I set my sights on starting my own tour where my love for food began.
Growing up in South Florida, Delray Beach has always been a hidden gem of mine. It has quickly become a must-see destination. This recent growth has caused all-out EXPLOSION for the restaurant scene, providing in my opinion the best craft food and drink Florida has to offer.
Before being able to call myself a resident of Delray Beach, I was raised in South Florida where I started to develop my aspiring passion for food and cooking. Worldwide travels have helped open my eyes on the diversity of food and the individuality of the chefs, recipes and restaurants that help shape the world we savor.
I am fascinated with taking pictures of food, as for me it is absolutely necessary to have a record of a memorable meal so that it is never forgotten. @CraftFoodTours

What started out in my college apartment in Chicago as a passion for hosting great parties with delicious food and drinks, has grown into a career of providing incredible food tour experiences to South Florida’s tourists and locals. While I’ve been lucky enough to work as a tour guide for Craft Food Tours since June of 2018, I’m even luckier to have been the person Matt and Anthony decided to work with when they decided to grow the tours outside of Delray Beach. I can’t wait to spread the joy of masterfully curated food tours to many more cities and neighborhoods around Palm Beach, Broward, and beyond!
