Taste of the Nation is back and better than ever. This annual event brings together some of the best chefs, winemakers, brewers and distillers to end childhood hunger. Imagine an evening of wandering from table to table trying bites from Aviary or Departure or Lardo and mixing in sweets from Batch Chocolates or Fifty Licks while washing it all down with something from Cana’s Feast or maybe a House Spirits cocktail. For me, it is a night of fun, a bit of gluttony and a way to give back to the community. Share Our Strength is bringing Portland’s finest to the Crystal Ballroom on Tuesday evening, May 7. This year, 100% of ticket sales will go to local beneficiaries – Oregon Food Bank, Partners for a Hunger Free Oregon, St. Vincent DePaul and Klamath/Lake Counties Food Bank.
I’ve had the pleasure of attending this event for a couple of years now and everyone involved is passionate about their craft and about ending childhood hunger. Tickets are $85 for General Admission and VIP and LUXE tickets are also available. 60 purveyors of their craft – a bargain.
We have 2 VIP tickets to give away for this wonderful event. Just leave a comment stating which of the 60 purveyors you’re most excited to indulge. We’ll pick a winner on Friday morning. You can find more details about Taste of the Nation and the list of restaurants, wineries, breweries and distillers at Strength.org/Portland.
We have a winner- Ann wants to try some Broder and Lardo. Congrats Ann.
