The Taste 2019: A Sparkling Success

The venue was sparkling, the food was delicious, and the wine and beer were flowing as hundreds gathered for the 26th annual Taste event on Thursday, September 12. The Food Bank for Larimer County’s annual food and beverage tasting event in which guests get to sample some of Northern Colorado’s finest cuisine from locally-owned restaurants – the Taste truly is the foodie event of the year.

Hosted at the Marriott, guests and supporters flowed between the Ballroom and the Pavillion browsing tasty indulgences, chatting, sampling local craft beers and variety of wines, enjoying live music and bidding on fabulous silent auction items. This year’s people’s choice award, known as the Toast of the Taste, was Blue Agave Grill!

In all, we raised more than $80,000 at this year’s The Taste for hunger-relief programs in our community.

This year’s presenting sponsor was UCHealth. Other Enticing Entree sponsors included by Flood and Peterson, Citizen Printing, Bohemian Foundation, Clay Pot Creative, Cargill, First Bank and Flexx Productions.

Thank you to everyone who came out for this awesome event and for making it a success!
