It all began with a trip In 2013 Bonnie and Justin embarked on a six week cross country road trip around the United States. At each of their stops, they wanted to explore the unique culture and history that each city had to offer. Food was always a distinctive feature of these cities that allowed them to gain a view into the local culture. They found that local food tours allowed you to not only glimpse into the soul of the city you were visiting, but also gave you an opportunity to sample some of the best foods, desserts, and drinks that had created these distinct culinary scenes. As residents of Asbury Park they knew a food tour would be perfect for the historic and growing city.
In 2017 they created Taste of Asbury Food Tours and began conducting walking tours around the city that showed off all of the amazing foods Asbury Park had to offer. As high school and elementary school teachers by day, they work incredibly hard to bring their passion for education into their classrooms. This same work ethic is seen on every tour they conduct. Their love for Asbury Park is proudly on display as they give visitors a look into the soul of this city by the sea, through the foods of this amazing town.
