Project Angel Food's 2nd annual food-lovers event, “DELISH: party with culinary experiences,” saw co-host Annabeth Gish from FX’s “The Bridge” and Project Angel Food board member John McIlwee come out for an exciting array of dishes and fun this weekend.
DELISH goes beyond the typical food tasting by inviting guests to experience what makes food so captivating and entertaining. Offered an eclectic mix of over 35 food & beverage stations serving a variety of tasty tidbits & delicious drinks, guests picked up various “extras” and “how-to’s” that can turn a plain, simple dish into one that is forever memorable. Culinary experts & ace mixologists helped guide guests as they mixed and matched their picks of the many food & beverage options available.
Project Angel Food debuted its new DELISH children’s section: “Sweets, Candies and Crafts” featuring lollipop trees, healthy snacks, cupcake, apron & chef hat decorating, and a candy “bar” and lounge.
