Taste of Pride Rescheduled for Saturday

Written By Scott Joseph On November 9, 2016

When Hurricane Matthew threatened to blow through the area last month, he sent a lot of people scrambling, first to find cover, then to reschedule events that had to be cancelled.

The biggest event for that weekend was arguably the Come Out with Pride celebration that was to have occurred around Lake Eola Park on Oct. 8.

And from a culinary standpoint, one of the most anticipated events for the Pridefest was the first-time A Taste of Pride, featuring locally and nationally recognized chefs. That was cancelled, too.

But there have been some changes. Some of the celebrity chefs who were scheduled to participate in October are not on the roster this time. Notably Art Smith and Cat Cora, two popular, and out, chefs. Melissa Kelly, whose Primo is one of the premier restaurants at Grande Lakes Orlando, won’t be coming, either, it seems.

But several other cooking stars will be there, including flog favorites Kathleen Blake (The Rusty Spoon); Kevin Fonzo (K Restaurant); and Greg Richie (Baoery, Soco).

Another thing that’s changed with the new date is the price. It’s now $95 per person (previously $150, so a lot better),for the walkabout event, which will be in a cordoned off area of Lake Eola Park with the promise of the best views for the evening’s fireworks show. Besides food from the assembled chefs, there will be cocktails, wine and beer.

A Taste of Pride will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12. Click here for information about tickets.
