The Pikesville Chamber of Commerce tries to put on events which give people a look at their community while creating interest to entice them to visit the area. The chamber will be at it again later this month – using food to help with the task.
The chamber will host its annual Taste of Pikesville event on April 26. This not only gives those curious a peek at Pikesville and some of its food businesses but also assists the Baltimore Hunger Project, where a portion of the proceeds are headed.
Jessica Normington, the chamber’s executive director, added that there will be a prelude to the scheduled main event that night.
The VIF (Very Important Foodie) event is set for 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and will feature a higher ticket price while giving people an opportunity to spend some time with three of the area’s top chefs from last year – from Gourmet Again, Wegmans and Island Quizine – who are going to make something specific for VIF folks, paired with a local beer.
The entire affair is a mix of food and mingling with a Pikesville flair.
“The sole purpose of the [night] is to show the community the plethora of options we have at our disposal as far as restaurants are concerned,” Normington said. “And it’s an opportunity to do it all under one roof.”
This is the sixth year for the Taste of Pikesville, and Normington said it drew more than 400 people to the same location last time around. The difference this year is that there will be more space, as two ballrooms and a hallway will be used; in the past, one ballroom held the event. Also, valet parking will be available.
