|Folks enjoying Taste of Kalispell Saturday night.|
I love food. Good food, beautiful food, artful food. I found it all at Taste of Kalispell. Add to that: Cocinando, a Latin orchestra provided music for dancin' (which Christopher, Burrito and I did), there was an art display to enjoy in the museum, and door prizes.
But of course the star of the show was the food and wine.
Here are my top 5 favorite tastes of the 20 or so restaurants and caterers providing samples of their fine offerings:
|5. Homemade meatball at Bonelli's Bistro--bursting with flavor from fresh herbs and a lovely marinara sauce. Genuine comfort food.|
|4. North Bay Grille provided this perfectly summer-appropriate Thai Chicken Salad. The earthiness of the sesame oil and peanut butter, the crunch of the cabbage, carrots and peppers, the tender strips of chicken, the spicy finish. It was perfect, particularly with a robust glass of Mission Mountain Winery's Cabernet.|
