Taste of Vail

The 20th annual Taste of Vail got under way on Thursday, April 8th with several events including the Lamb Cook-Off and Apres Ski Tasting.  Local chefs were quite creative in their lamb dishes and participating wineries showcased an assortment of wines.  The weather was perfect and quite a crowd attended.

The 2nd Place winner was a lamb tamale topped with jicama slaw and green chili from the restaurant Ocotillo located in the Vail Marriott. The sample margarita was sweet and tangy. (I really wished it was full sized.)

Festivities continue today with several seminars and with the popular Mountain Top Picnic.  Saturday is the final day ending the food feast. The big daddy of food and wine tasting is the Grand Tasting and Dinner Dance at the Vail Mountain Marriott Saturday night. This main event features all Taste of Vail restaurants, wineries, and guest chefs. For a complete schedule of events and ticket information please call 970-926-5665 or visit www.tasteofvail.com
