Foodie event: Taste of the Nation returns to West Palm 

March 06, 2018
Chef Clay Conley (Buccan Restaurant Group) is a co-chair for this year’s Taste of the Nation grand tasting event.

When the top chefs in the county gather in one place, the heat map lights up like a brûlée torch. We can expect this to happen in a few weeks when Taste of the Nation returns to the Kravis Center.

The grand tasting night, which takes place April 5, is the largest culinary-for-charity event of the year, featuring nearly 50 area chefs, plus beverage pros. The cause: to support the national No Kid Hungry drive to connect families with food and nutrition sources. 

At last year’s sold-out event, more than 600 people helped raise some $100,000 for the cause. Organizers say that translates to one million meals for the needy. 

Beyond bites: There’s plenty to drink at Taste of the Nation, including craft cocktails, wine, local beer and locally roasted coffee.  Photo:
