Tickets are now on sale for Taste, a fundraising food event benefiting the Kidney Foundation of the Greater Chattanooga Area, Thursday, March 7, from 5:30-9 p.m. at Stratton Hall.

With a $35 advance ticket ($40 at the door), guests will enjoy unlimited sampling from over 20 locally owned and operated restaurants plus one drink ticket to be used for beer, wine, or other non-alcoholic beverage. Liquor will be available at a cash bar.  

This year, for the first time, guests will also have the option of reserving a full table for seating and socializing with their friends or their company colleagues through the Taste website.

In the spirit of all things food, a chef competition will be a highlight of Taste. The competition, from 7-8 p.m., will include Chattanooga chefs competing to create a gourmet dish using one secret ingredient provided by Whole Foods Market.  

The winning chef will be selected by a panel of judges to receive a prize at the end of the evening.  

Taste consists of a variety of local flavors ranging from the familiar, like Southern Burger Company, or Petunia’s Silver Jalapeno to the elegant St. John’s Meeting Place, or the Mexican flavors of Ovalle’s Mexican Café, among many others.

The delicious array of food served at Taste is complemented by local musicians such as alternative songwriting duo Woodford Sessions and local funk/soul band, Function. Couture clothing will also be a feature of Taste, with strolling models wearing fashions provided by some of Chattanooga’s local boutiques.  

Taste will provide financial support for programs and services of the Kidney Foundation of the Greater Chattanooga Area, keeping all funds raised from participants and donors here in Chattanooga.
