Morgantown to host "Taste of West Virginia" Thursday

Taste of Morgantown

It's almost time for one of my favorite events in Morgantown: The Taste of West Virginia.

The event, which is a fundraiser benefitting the American Red Cross, will bring together more than a dozen local restaurants who will create delicious dishes in hopes of winning a judge's or people's choice award.
Support the American Red Cross and delight your taste buds during the 9th annual Taste of West Virginia. A foodie’s paradise, the event will provide a vast array of bites from the area’s best restaurants, who will showcase their unique cuisine and compete for one of seven culinary awards.
I'm really excited to return again this year to judge, and I'll even have copies of The West Virginia Pepperoni Roll for sale.
