Best Damn Thing I Ate: Flavors Of Central Texas
This past Thursday, I had the opportunity to MC and host the 8th Annual Flavors of Central Texas presented by The Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce and it was amazing! Over 35 local vendors and restaurants in one location offering free samples of their food, I LITERALLY got STUFFED within the first hour!
I got to try out so many delicious and different foods including Wild Mushroom Ravioli, Brisket nachos, Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes, SO MUCH food, I'm having trouble remembering what all I ate! As I was walking around, folks would just hand me plates of food and tell me "Try It", it got to the point I had to turn folks away so I don't waste their delicious offerings!
One of the highlights of the night was "The Jalapeno Eating Contest" where competitors had to eat as many jalapenos in 60 seconds as they could. Crazy right?
Major congratulations goes out to Ravenous in Killeen who took home 2 "People's Choice Awards" for "Best Appetizer" and "Best Entree", Sweet Eats who took home "Best Dessert" and Work Of Art Cakes winner of "Best Booth"!
I'm looking forward to next year's "Flavors of Central Texas" and I definitely want to the thank The Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce for inviting me to host! Follow them on Facebook to stay up to date on next year's event!
