A Grand Success: Taste of the Wasatch

Nearly 1,500 people enjoyed Taste of the Wasatch this year at Solitude Mountain Resort. Chef’s Vance Lott and Kris Ricks from Communal Restaurant, Stephen Lott from Pizzeria 712 and Ryan Peterson, restaurant manager, enjoyed serving attendees fresh and of course local corn on the cob with a shallot compound butter and parsley as well as white wine poached local peaches with Amarena Cherry Vinegar.

Attendees receive a plate and a wine glass and enjoy walking in the fresh mountain air while tasting various dishes from some of the finest restaurants in Utah.

“I loved Taste of the Wasatch. We are one of the only restaurants in the valley there and I really loved showing SLC who we are and what we are about. Multiple times people came to our booth to tell us that they’ve heard of Heirloom or that they even come down to our restaurants once a month. It’s awesome having supporters all the way up in SLC.”

Vance Lott, Head Chef: Communal Restaurant

One hundred percent of funds raised for this event help support efforts to fight hunger in Utah. According to Taste of the Wasatch’s Web site, “In Utah, one in six children live in homes where they experience food hardship – that means one in six kids do not know where their next meal is coming from, or if they will have one.” There are also hundreds of adults and seniors in Utah who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days. Funds from Taste of the Wastach help alleviate this hunger through food education and nutritional programs. Funds assist in obtaining immediate access to food items for the hungry as well as advocacy for stronger programs and additional hunger alleviation programs in Utah.

Join us for a wonderful event! Purchasing your ticket will help alleviate hunger in our community. Get your tickets for this years Taste of the Wasatch here.
