SLCene Suggests: Taste of the Wasatch at Solitude

by on July 29, 2014


TASTE OF THE WASATCH, SOLITUDE RESORT, Sunday, Aug. 3, Noon-4 p.m., $90

Utah has its fair share of food festivals, benefits and tastings throughout the year, but nothing I’ve been to captures all of the above in the same way as the annual Taste of the Wasatch event at Solitude, a fundraiser for groups working to help the hungry in Utah. Restaurants and chefs from across the Wasatch Front and Park City areas showcase their skills for an afternoon in the stunning setting, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to organizations such as Utah Food Bank, Utahns Against Hunger, the Ogden Weber Community Action Partnership and 3 Squares, Inc. It’s hard to beat the joyous vibe as hundreds of folks make their way up Big Cottonwood Canyon to join the fun. Sadly, hunger in Utah is a problem that continues, with one in five Utah children considered “food insecure” or at-risk. We’re talking about children of the working poor as well as the homeless. Taste of the Wasatch is one great way to lend a hand. There will be live music by Daniel Day Trio, craft beer and wine on hand, as well as a silent auction full of goodies and the Utah Bakers Dozen, featuring excellent desserts from the state’s best pastry chefs and bakers. You can read about my afternoon at last summer’s event here, and be sure to get your tickets while the getting is still good. Taste of the Wasatch is a 21 and older event.
