White plates filled with salmon crudo, delicately crafted cupcakes with candy pearls and tea drinks spiked with booze filled the Erickson Alumni Center on June 10 for the seventh annual Taste of Morgantown.
The event, which is a fundraiser benefitting the American Red Cross Northeast Chapter, hosted nearly 20 restaurants, specialty food vendors, breweries and top wine distributors Wednesday night, with each delivering delicious, innovative dishes and drinks in hopes of winning a judge’s or people’s choice award.
Atomic Grill, Bartini, Blue Ridge Beverage, Coach’s Crab Shack, Erickson Alumni Center, Iron Horse Tavern, Jo’s Globe, Morgan’s High Street Diner, Lakeview Resort & Spa, Morgantown Brewing Company, Mountain State Brewing Company, Table 9, Terre Café, The Cupcakerie, The Preston County Inn, The Tea Shoppe, The Wine Bar at Vintner Valley, Tin 202, and Tutto Gelato Café participated in this year’s event.
This year’s featured a carnival theme, as well as a heavy emphasis on local foods. My friend Kayla and I sampled as much of the fare as we could before having to be rolled out of the event.
