About Cape May Food Tours

I’ve always loved showing friends around Cape May, eating delicious freshly prepared foods at local restaurants, relating interesting stories of Cape May history, and pointing out the elements of various styles of our charming Victorian buildings. In 2011 on a visit to my daughter’s university in Athens, Georgia, I pick up a brochure about a Food Tour. I read, ” Great Food, Fun History, Beautiful Architecture”. I knew in that moment that this is what I wanted to bring to Cape May. After much research, a crash course on Food Tourism in Chicago, lots of tastings and planning, Cape May Food Tours launched it’s signature Historic Downtown Food Tour in August 2012 and has been going strong ever since. I’m a big believer in following your passions and talents and giving back to others. Cape May Food Tours has given me that platform. This year, we have partnered with the Lymphoma Research Foundation for some upcoming Cape May Food Tour events. We are very excited to support LRF!
