21st Annual Taste of Fair Oaks

21st Annual Taste of Fair Oaks at Northridge Country Club
 June 6th, 2014
This was my first time attending a Taste of Fair Oaks event, presented by the Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce, and it WON'T be my last! As an obsessive foodie this was a super fun and tasty way to become more familiar with the very town I grew up in, Fair Oaks. Not only was there an abundant amount of local and regional food, wine and microbrew samples, there was also a ton of new friendly fellow foodies to meet.
As my boyfriend and I made our way throughout the thick crowds we nibbled on pulled pork sliders, buffalo wings, hearty meat and bean chili, prosciutto wrapped melon with balsamic reduction, tacos with slaw, eggrolls, enchiladas, gluten-free mushroom raviolis with truffle cream sauce, tender beef and pork meatballs in a rich red sauce, dry-spiced meats and an array of desserts...just to name quite a few. And while we nibbled we also sipped on amazing wine, champagne and microbrews including an awesome, not too sweet apple cider. I just wish I had gotten more photos of all the culinary glory but it all just went down the hatch too quickly...
