GoodTaste! Erie, the region’s freshest food and cooking show, will serve up a fun food-filled day from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Ambassador Event Center, 7794 Peach Street.
GoodTaste! Erie is a family-friendly celebration of Erie's fabulous food scene -- from restaurants to the rich seasonal bounties that are grown, produced and sold regionally.
The event will serve up a vendor marketplace, live demonstrations and workshops, holiday recipes and (of course!) non-stop sampling of delectable food and beverage offerings by dozens of local restaurants, wineries and food producers.
Topping the menu is nationally recognized DANCAKES, pancake artists who wield a squeeze bottle filled with colorful batter -- on the Main Stage at 1 p.m. This edible art features anything from cartoon and anime characters to portraits of celebrities and the average Joe. Maple syrup is optional – artistic awe is not!
“Erie’s vibrant food scene is getting more sophisticated every day,” explained Show Producer, Dee Weinberg. “GoodTaste! Erie is a scrumptious opportunity for foodies from across northwestern PA to enjoy a tasty line-up of national and local chefs demonstrating their culinary wizardry.”
Workshops – included in the admission price – include:
- Health Benefits of the Mediterranean Diet by Dr. Lisa Maine
- Olive Oil Truths, Myths and Recipes by Oakmont Olive Oil Company
GoodTaste! Erie is also supporting Erie’s highly respected City Mission and their holiday meals for the disadvantaged. All attendees who bring a non-perishable food donation to the show will be entered to win a Thanksgiving dinner for four from Honey Baked Ham.
Adult tickets are available for $10 in advance here. If available, tickets at the door will be $15; admission for children under 12 is free.
