Nelson is known for having a great selection of fine and unique eating establishments with fabulous food. A ticket to the annual A Taste of Nelson evening will give you the opportunity to get together with friends and enjoy good food from the best, as well as fine wine, organic beer and fresh roasted coffee while supporting a great cause.

You will get a chance to taste a featured dish from each restaurant, and one of two selections from an area winery and brewery. At the end of it all you can enjoy a cup of locally roasted coffee.

All the food and beverages have been donated by local restaurants and vendors who have once again teamed up with the Multiple Sclerosis Society to support this fundraising event for the local chapter.

There will be gift certificates from the supporting restaurants to be given as free door prizes and some great silent auction items.  They’re working on an awesome raffle prize, but you’ll have to be there to win.

Tickets are $35 and are available at Culinary Conspiracy (610 Baker Street).  If you have a group of eight you can buy a table for $280 and they’ll reserve it for you.  So get your friends together or a group of co-workers and plan an evening. If you have a business or organization and would like to support the MS Society and buy a table, you can do that at Culinary Conspiracy.

A Taste of Nelson is on September 26 at 6 p.m. at the Best Western Baker Street Inn in the Osprey-Kestrel Room.

Tickets go on sale this Saturday. This event sold out well in advance last year so get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
