Working in the nonprofit world, I have seen first-hand how many kids in Utah go hungry each day. But you can help! AND, you can help while enjoying one of the best food and wine events in Utah!
Taste of the Wasatch is one of my favorite events of the year. As Utah’s premiere culinary event, Taste of the Wasatch features food tastings presented by chefs from over 50 top Utah restaurants and resorts, alongside boutique wineries and craft breweries pouring tastes. Some of the restaurants participating are: Log Haven, Deer Valley Resort, Pallet Bistro, Avenues Proper, Trio, Tin Angel Cafe, Meditrina, and Red Iguana.
