SLCene Suggests: Taste of the Wasatch at Solitude

by on August 1, 2013

TASTE OF THE WASATCH, SOLITUDE RESORT, Sunday, Aug. 4, Noon, $90/$125 for VIP in advance

When it comes to foodie extravaganzas in Utah–and we have an increasing number of events year-round that certainly qualify–there’s no beating the annual summer benefit for Utah’s hungry held at Solitude Mountain Resort. The Taste of the Wasatch brings together several dozen of Utah’s best restaurants for a tasting party that showcases both great new spots–this year including Del Mar al Lago, Zest and Avenues Proper Restaurant & Publick House–along with old favorites that are always serving up something awesome–just try and keep me away from The Glitretind at Stein Erickson Lodge’s always-killer ribs. Those places are among an amazing array of places serving all manner of cuisine, all for the benefit of organizations dedicated to fighting hunger in Utah. In fact, 100 percent of the proceeds from the event go to the Utah Food Bank, Utahns Against Hunger and Ogden Weber Community Action Partnership. Throw in wine and beer, an excellent silent auction and live music courtesy of The Staff, along with the awesome environment of Solitude resort, and you have the makings of an awesome Sunday afternoon. Due to changes in the liquor laws, Taste of the Wasatch is now only for 21 and older patrons, so help make up for any loss of money from kids who used to come by joining the fun. One bit of advice–hit the Utah Bakers Dozen dessert area first if you want to have any chance of being hungry for sweet treats before hitting the other booths.
