Yes, that sounds obvious - we eat when we're hungry, duh. However, that's not the hunger the annual Taste of the Wasatch aims to end. For over a decade, the quintessential Wasatch dining event takes over the lawn at the base of the Solitude Village with Utah's finest chefs, cases of wine, local beers and dozens of desserts in the name of ending childhood hunger.
If you're thinking this concept sound a tad ironic, you're right. Eating copious amounts of gourmet food to raise dollars and awareness for charity is dripping in irony. Think of the Taste of the Wasatch weekend as an opportunity to help those less fortunate: from silent auction items available at the event, to time and resource donations.
This four-hour Sunday event also allows for the opportunity to chat with the chef's, learn which wines (or beers) pair with what types of foods and take in the fresh mountain air. It's no secret food tastes better at altitude, so you have to have a plan to fit it all in. Yes, this sounds rather gluttonous, but it's for charity! I've perfected this art, though it took ten years of trial and error to dial in the right program. We like to make a weekend of it in the Solitude Village, staying Saturday and Sunday nights, if possible.
