Taste of the Season
Author: Mario Machi
An Annual Culinary Delight
There’s no better way to usher in the holiday season than with great food and fun times at Taste of the Season, the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce’s annual holiday food tasting extravaganza.
With 40 local restaurants and food service establishments offering up some of their menu favorites, you’ll have a chance to try everything from Lowcountry classics like shrimp ‘n’ grits to an elegant Italian tiramisu. At the end of the evening, you can cast your vote for your favorite items. Awards will be presented to the restaurants serving the most popular dishes.
In addition to the variety of cuisines and excellent food, there will be a silent auction and a 52-card grand raffle. With a chance to win prizes such as gift certificates to local restaurants and vacation packages at area resorts, the auction and raffle are always very popular. What better way to start your holiday shopping, if you haven’t already? You’ll get some wonderful gift ideas and have the opportunity to bid on the ones that would be perfect for your friends and family.
The 17th annual Taste of the Season, will be held at the exquisite clubhouse at the Sea Pines Country Club on Friday, November 17, from 6-9 p.m. Traditionally, one of the island’s most popular events—and always a sellout—this year’s tasting promises to be the best yet. Tickets are $30 and are available by calling the Chamber of Commerce at 785-3673.
