Join local VIPs, dignitaries, and friends of Pearl S. Buck International for this gala gourmet event! Taste of the World showcases the area’s premier food and beverage offerings from local restaurants as well as food and drink purveyors. At this event, a panel of culinary judges will choose the winner of the Top Taste Award and guests will vote for the Fan Favorite Award. Beautiful and unique objects and experiences will also be offered at a fun live auction and a silent auction. Held on the grounds and in the Estate Pavilion of the beautiful Pearl S. Buck estate, this is one perfectly delicious evening-out for foodies and friends!
