Originally posted on Go Local St. Croix:
So this year was my first year attending “A Taste of St. Croix” (simply known as, “the Taste”) as a local food advocate and blogger. And honestly, I had very little idea what to expect and do other than I knew that I wanted to attend the event with one goal in mind: Seek out and find the local food, and report on it. I wanted to show a perspective of the event that was different from the beautiful and glamorous photo shoots, the glitz and the glitter, the laughter and the full tummies and happy smiles going into the night. I was a woman on a mission, and I had ONE mission: Find the local food ingredients, and taste what had been done with it.
I am happy to report that I wasn’t disappointed. The theme of this year’s St. Croix Food and Wine Experience week has been “Food, Farm, Philanthropy,” and what I found at the Taste was that most of the chefs and restaurants had incorporated some aspect of that theme in their dishes. Most had at least one or two local ingredients, and several had many more, with some being composed of almost entirely local food ingredients. And I had some wonderful surprises! Everything I tasted was very good, bordering on delicious. To paraphrase the words of visiting chef Simon Stojanovic, local food doesn’t have to be boring! And that’s the message that many of our local chefs were embracing as they created their dishes.
It all goes down…April 18th, 2013 at the Divi Carina Bay Resort & Casino from 6 to 9 p.m.
