Central Florida’s most celebrated chefs and beverage purveyors will gather on September 8, 2018 at the Orlando World Center Marriott to serve up support for the annual Taste! Central Florida and raise funds for childhood hunger relief in the community.
Featuring the area’s most accomplished chefs, brewers, wine purveyors and spirit vendors, Taste! Central Florida℠ invites the community to enjoy an evening of tasting portions of signature dishes accompanied by fine wines, craft beers, and specialty cocktails. This annual celebration of the community’s culinary excellence is a volunteer-driven event with local chefs, brewers and distilleries donating their time, talent and creations to make this event one of the largest fundraisers of the year for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
For the first time last year, 100 percent of event proceeds remained in the community and were directed exclusively to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, amounting to nearly $125,000 for each organization − the largest in event history.
This year’s event returns with an impressive roster of 39 restaurants and more than a dozen brewers, distilleries, wine purveyors, and specialty beverage vendors. Newcomers include Big Fin Seafood Kitchen, The Glass Knife, The Old Jailhouse, Pharmacy Orlando, Ravello at Four Seasons Resort Orlando, Tiffins at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Big Top Brewing Company, Dragon’s Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout, Playalinda Brewing Company, and Wild Buck Whiskey & Mermaid Rum.
