Taste of Indiana Serves Up this Month
Dig IN, A Taste of Indiana, will again showcase Indiana’s top chefs, growers/producers, brewers, vintners and value-added food producers at the third annual event from noon to 5 p.m. on August 25 at White River State Park in Indianapolis. As part of admission, attendees will be treated to two-ounce samplings of unique dishes made with farm-fresh Indiana produce and proteins from more than 30 of the state’s best food providers that will prepare their delicacies onsite while discussing their recipes and the all-Hoosier ingredients.
Some of the many healthy ingredients will include sun-ripened Indiana tomatoes, basil and Capriole goat cheese from a farm in Greenville, Indiana; bison, yellow perch and duck raised on Indiana farms; plus blueberries, jalapenos and sweet corn grown in Hoosier soil.
“Dig IN combines the best Indiana has to offer in the way of food and culinary creativity,” says Annie Schmelzer, chair of the 19-member Dig IN board that includes the state’s most active proponents of Indiana food and agriculture.
The Indiana Wine Grape Council and Brewers of Indiana Guild will provide wine and beer tastings, and local soft drinks and water will be served as well. Local bands, urban gardening exhibits, educational discussion panels and local expert Q-and-A sessions will also take place.
