Taste of Huntsville 2011

21 Oct 2011

Shane and I, along with two enthusiastic and hungry friends, went to the Taste of Huntsville for the first time this year. It is an event that is 36 years old and benefits charity. This year’s event benefitted CASA and Heals, Inc. After buying a $30 ticket in advance or $35 at the door, you enter into a room lined with tables where local and national restaurants offer up some of their signature dishes in bite-sized portions. Even though the portions are small, sampling food from 30+ vendors leaves your stomach thankful that this event only comes around once a year.  Some dishes fell flat and some shined, but all tasted a little better because they were offered for a good cause. Some of our crew’s local favorites included the peanut butter pie from New Market Bar-B-Q, the grits with shrimp roux from Creative Catering, the quail in roasted tomato sauce from Mezza Luna, and the ribs from Lawler’s Barbecue (ribs, people…not the more-affordable-for-them-to-offer pulled pork, but ribs!). We look forward to seeing all of our readers there next year!

  1. Hi there! Just wanted to say THANK YOU for sampling our food at the taste! We appreciate your kind words and are pleased that our Peanut Butter Pie was one of your top favorites. Did you guys try our Smoked Mac n’ Cheese and Turkey Breast? Just curious as to what you thought. Come see us some time to try the rest of our great menu! We’ll be at rhe upcoming business expo next week providing more samples of our food. We hope to serve you guys again soon. Thanks!

    • We enjoyed all of your food, but the peanut butter pie was outstanding. We’d love to come and visit your restaurant sometime and do a full review. Maybe we’ll make it by soon. Thanks for the comment! -Melanie
