Taste of the Nation is my favorite foodie event of the year. 100% of ticket sales supports Share our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger. Restaurants such as The Ravenous Pig, Cress Restaurant, A Land Remembered at Rosen Shingle Creek, Cafe Tu Tu Tango and more all came to help.
Last year, over 35 restaurants from all over Central Florida presented “tastes” ranging from pork belly dishes, desserts, lobster tacos, bratwurst sandwiches, prime angus beef cuts, and much more all in the name of charity. Many of the dishes were truly outstanding, loaded with complex flavors, textures, and made from the utmost quality ingredients. I felt like I was in some foodie heaven.
