More than 100 food and beverage samples from 35 different exhibitors will be available during the annual Taste of the Southside. The one-day epicurean event, and southside’s largest and longest running tasting event, will be held on Feb. 22 at the Valle Vista Golf Club and Conference Center from 4:30–7 p.m.
The event will feature the annual Chef Challenge Competition sponsored by Meijer, Inc., where Chef Richard Goss from Richard’s Brick Oven Pizza will be back to defend his title against two other competitors. Three competing chefs will be given mystery ingredients and must show their culinary skills by creating dishes for the panel of judges. For a second year, the Mixology Competition returns. Three local bartenders will create cocktails based on specific liquor brands and a panel of judges will name the winner.
Guests also have the opportunity to participate in a wine pull and a silent auction featuring sports memorabilia, wine baskets, restaurant gift cards and getaway packages.
