Support Your Local Foodie: The ‘Grand Tasting’ Benefit for the Sun Valley Culinary Institute

On Sunday, September 23rd the Sun Valley Harvest Festival will culminate its weekend of food and friends with its finale, the Grand Tasting. From 12:00-3:00 pm, sample an eclectic variety of culinary creations provided by the Valley’s finest chefs and caterers, along with tasting local craft beers, distilled spirits, and our six featured wines from our sponsor wineriesWe’ll be serving everything from savory main dishes, side dishes, artisanal pizza, desserts, ice cream, hors d’oeuvres and much more. Wander through and chat with chefs as you sample their fare, learn about each of the wines and how to pair them with food, learn how to properly taste vodka and make the perfect martini.

Your ticket to the Grand Tasting doesn’t just get you an afternoon of epicurean indulgence; proceeds of this event directly benefit the development of Sun Valley Culinary Institute. By helping to financially support this newly formed institute, we hope to establish a world-class culinary offering that will build on the College of Southern Idaho’s existing culinary and hospitality programs, emphasize farm to table menus at local restaurants, and catalyze a budding “foodie culture” in the Valley. At the SVHF, we have a natural desire to help out a local organization that seeks to increase culinary knowledge and passion for all things gourmet!

Get your tickets for the Grand Tasting here and enjoy an afternoon celebrating and supporting foodies like you!

We also would like to thank Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Ketchum for sponsoring this benefit!
