Another year of Dig IN – A Taste of Indiana is behind me. Boy did I count the days until the event arrived. I long for it every year, knowing that my time will be spent tasting some of the best of Indiana chefs, restaurants, farmers, producers and artisans.
I’m familiar with this event in many ways. I’ve not only blogged the crap out of it (all out of love), but I was a Gastronaut again this year, which meant that I took photos and videos as I chowed my way from tent to tent and promoted it ahead of time to help generate ticket sales. All of those photos can now be found in one place – on this blog!
It’s pretty easy to see why I love this event so much. Look at those amazing dishes! I can’t believe that we had the opportunity to taste so many amazing things in one place. Where else could you do that for $40.00 minimum? I heard a statistic that if you ate everything that was offered at the event, you’d eat 5 pounds of food.
I also want to give a shout out to all of the volunteers, staff, chefs, restaurants, artisans, producers, sponsors and every person that made this event possible. I know it takes a lot of work to put something for 4,000 people together, and I truly think they put together a wonderful event. It was hot, but there was free bottled water and plenty of shady spots to rest in while you ate your food. So, it goes without saying that I’ll go to Dig IN 2014, but the question is, will YOU?
