Northeast Chamber’s International Taste and Tour Includes Sweet Treats

Google food and community … go ahead … it is an enjoyable process. Find incredible ideas such as that from Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt: “Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.” Legendary master chef Emeril Lagasse says, “Cooking is so popular today because it’s the perfect mix of food and fun.” Humorist Erma Bombeck wrote, “Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.”

There will be no dessert passed up during the Northeast Chamber of Commerce’s International Taste and Tour. Northeast International Taste and Tour Sept. 6 will give guests the tastes of Ethiopia, France, Haiti, Italy, Mexico, Somalia, Vietnam and America. Cuisine will be sampled under the roof of Don Bosco Center, 580 Campbell Ave. From images of previous events, it looks like desserts are a significant part of the menu.

Along with the adventurous world cuisine, guests are invited to take a trolley ride and tour the sights of the Northeast. Mark Alford from Fox 4 will serve as the guest master of ceremonies. After quenching the appetite, dancing will be on tap with music provided by Grand Marquis Band. Along with dining and dancing, there will be a live auction with auctioneer Randy Easley.

Here’s a breakdown of the evening’s activities:

5-7 p.m., social hour and trolley tour
