Last Call for Taste of the Nation

On Sunday, Aug. 7, Taste of the Nation Utah, a benefit for Share Our Strength, will take place at Solitude Mountain Resort, raising critical funds needed to support efforts to end childhood hunger in Utah and across the nation. --- There is still time to get in on the fun, food, and camaraderie, all for a very important cause. 

More than 40 of Utah’s best restaurants and chefs will be represented, including the always-popular Baker’s Dozen, which features more than 15 pastry chefs’ sweet creations. In addition to food, a variety of wines will be provided, generously supplied by Phoenix Wine & Spirits, Southern Odom Spirits West and Young’s Market.

Taste of the Nation also includes a silent auction, live music and a live auction, which I will emcee. Live auction items this year include a Stein Eriksen Lodge getaway package, in-home wine dinners from Goldener Hirsch Inn, Fresco and the Copper Onion, and wine education classes for two, courtesy of Jimmy Santangelo.  

The event takes place from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m., and ticket prices are $75 per person for advance general admission ($90 at the door), $125 for advance VIP tickets with reserved seating and $1,200 for a group VIP table for 10 people. All ticket proceeds are donated to anti-hunger organizations, including Utahns Against Hunger. To purchase advance tickets, click here.
