The 10th Annual Taste of Newark will be held Sept. 29 from noon to 3 p.m. on the Old College Lawn, UD Main Campus. The rain location is at Clayton Hall. Tickets are $45 each if purchased before the event, and $60 at the door.
At Taste of Newark, guests enjoy the specialties of more than 50 Newark restaurants, accompanied by the finest area wine distributors. The event's special guest is executive chef David Puser. Puser has worked as a chef in Switzerland since 1989 and has served for more than a decade as the executive chef of the Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality.
Featuring food from more than 50 restaurants and 30 wineries, Taste of Newark also has celebrity cooking demonstrations and more. Fueling the competition is the annual "Iron Chef"-style Battle of the Chefs. Now in its fifth year, the event gives chefs one hour to concoct dishes from a secret list of ingredients. Competing this year are Anthony Carnevale II from 16 Mile Taphouse, Jeovany Valle from Caffe Gelato, Mark Chopko from Courtyard Newark, Donny Merrill, Jr., from Skipjack, and Jeff Matyger from Taverna Rustic Italian.
