Taste...A Tradition Of Chef's Caring For Community

For over a quarter century many Southern Ocean County Chef's have gathered annually to offer a culinary experience called "Taste", that delights the senses in order to bring attention to the work our local community food pantries do in their efforts to end hunger. In 2020, when the Covid Pandemic hit our 25th Annual Event had to be cancelled and since then the event has been re-imagined in a bit different manner.

In 2021, HFOSO.org launched "Taste @ Home" which merged a live dinner at Ott's with a Taste @ Home Dinner that included live Chef's Demos to follow along with at home. See Below For The Recipes from 2021.

For 2022 We are excited to announce that HFOSO will once again be offering a Live Dinner at Ott's "Solstice Soiree" and a special option Taste @ Home Solstice Soiree Party Package for up to 8 people.  . See Below For Details. 

We will also be offering a number of "Taste @ Home" offers from our culinary partners through out the year and encourage you to watch for them.
