A look at Taste of the Nation

With nearly 50 premier restaurants cooking their tastiest small dishes, Taste of the Nation is one of Utah’s finest culinary extravaganzas. And it looks nearly as good as it tasted. ---

The four-hour event up at Solitude Mountain Resort also featured wine and beer samplings, music and a silent and live auction. And it’s all for a good cause: 100 percent of ticket sales supports Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger. For the hard figures raised at this event, read this blog by Dan Nailen.

While I realize watching a slideshow of delicious food will only be for the most hardcore foodie—or those wanting to relive the weekend’s gluttony—it might inspire some culinary excellence in you, or a desire to head to Solitude next year.

It’s also worth noting that these photos were taken on my phone, so the quality is not magazine-grade. And while these are some of my favorite dishes at the event, by the time I meandered about, several of the booths had already packed up.
