The Licking County 30 Mile Meal Project partnered with the Buckeye Lake Winery on September 28, 2013 to bring you an adventure in taste. The event boasted five food tastings sourced from local farms, created by five of Licking County’s premier chefs, and paired with five wines specially selected by the winery! The inaugural event featured chefs from the Granville Inn, Ella, Snapshots, Buckeye Lake Winery & Bon Appetit. Dessert was provided by Go Cat Bakery/Chocolates with a Purrrpose and Goumas Confections!
Post event, we polled attendees to find out what they thought of the event and their awareness of local foods.
Here is what we found:
