As a food & cocktail writer, sometimes I can forget how incredibly lucky I am to be able to have a table full of food – enough to feed my family and friends. Or, the means to spend time out and about in the city indulging in all that Salt Lake City has to offer.
It can be easy to forget that hunger in Utah is a real problem, a problem that needs community support.
Taste of the Wasatch is one way that you can help support the fight against hunger in Utah. Over 50 of Utah’s top chefs, restaurants and bakers will gather on Sunday, August 2, 2015 at Solitude Mountain Resort from 11:30a.m.(for Reserved Seats), 12 noon (for general admission) until 4 p.m. for the fourth annual Taste of the Wasatch.
Right now, hundreds of Utahns are struggling with hunger. These are often hard-working adults and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet. Breaking the cycle of hunger is the driving force behind Taste of the Wasatch and the organizational programs who benefit from the event.
Funds raised stay local, directly benefiting Utahns Against Hunger, The Green Urban Lunch Box and 3 Squares, Inc.
Tickets for Taste of the Wasatch are $90 for General Admission and $125 for Reserved Seating (VIP), if purchased in advance. Group discounts are available.
***THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO ADULTS AGES 21 and OVER ONLY.***
Look forward to delicious flavors from: Stein Eriksen’s Lodge’s Glitretind, Deer Valley Resort, Avenues Proper, La Caille, Luna Blanca, Trio, Meditrina, Red Iguana and more. New restaurants joining the event include Harbor Seafood and Steak, Current Fish and Oyster, R and R BBQ, Porch, Taqueria 27, Bistro 222 and The Annex by Epic Brewing. The now famous Dessert Booth will showcase fine desserts from more than 15 of the state’s best top pastry chefs and bakers.
