What is The Tasty Expo?
The Tasty Expo is a series of national food and beverage events that will feature local and national vendors. The series is scheduled throughout the summer in food-loving cities from coast to coast, including Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, Washington D.C., San Diego, Nashville, and others. But, luckily for Signature Place residents, it will kick off in the Kansas City area!
Come hungry because the Tasty Expo will include more than 200 food and drink tasting stations. Get your fill by sampling foods such as steaks, chicken, salsa, vegetables, sauces, cakes, jerky, honey, nuts, toffee, a variety of snacks, and so much more. Then, quench your thirst with your choice of beer, wine, tea, and other drinks.
If you’re looking for some recipe ideas or interested in new cooking techniques, check out the live chef demonstrations. They’ll showcase new creations every half hour.
Finally, the BBQ Battle of the Grill pits up to 50 teams against each other to smoke and grill your favorite meats. One lucky team will win up to $500 in prize money. The competition is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society.
