After 21 years of Taste of Addison, the city has decided to get rid of it and bring a much better concept to Addison – Fork & Cork.
Addison is excited to introduce an-all new culinary event, Fork & Cork, May 16 and 17, 2014 at Addison Circle Park. Designed for the epicurious, this intimate, two-day event will bring together celebrated chefs, craft breweries, wineries and spirit makers—tempting palettes with more culinary style.
Fork & Cork attendees can get their hands dirty with interactive cooking classes, dive into delicious bites from some of the best restaurants in the DFW area, and imbibe in divine cocktails, craft beers and wines. Fork & Cork evolved out of the success of Taste Addison and will replace it as the city’s annual signature food event—and take Addison back to its culinary roots.
Friday night features an all-inclusive $65 food and drink ticket with restaurants serving bite-size samples. A portion of the proceeds from Friday night will benefit Café Momentum—a non-profit organization that teaches critical skills that allow youth to apply what they have been taught in re-release programs in a safe, real-world environment of nurturing accountability.
The $35 ticket on Saturday includes the Grand Tasting Tent, the Pat Green concert, and access to restaurants cooking taste-sized dishes onsite for $1 to $5 each. In addition, a limited number of $100 VIP packages will give special access to hands-on cooking classes, Marcus Samuelsson’s demo, special tasting opportunities, chef meet and greets, valet parking and more.
I am personally very excited about the switch. I’m glad that Addison is moving away from Taste of Addison and bringing a new concept to the city.
