Taste of the Deerfield Valley - Dover Vermont

I received the press release re-printed below via e-mail today from Celeste Dwyer, ( For additional information, visit

DOVER, VT—April 29, 2010—Celebrate the Valley announces major additions to this year’s Taste of the Deerfield Valley event slated for Saturday, September 11 from 9am-5pm at the base of Mount Snow Resort in Dover, Vermont. Myron Mixon, three-time World BBQ Champion and TV star of TLC’s Pitmasters, will join the Taste of the Deerfield Valley food fest on Saturday to demonstrate his barbecueing skills. The night before the Taste, Mixon will entertain and demonstrate his barbecue prowess at a special dinner hosted by a local Inn.

The Taste of the Deerfield Valley showcases dozens of top restaurants in the area to give the public the opportunity to taste specialty items from each of them and the opportunity to vote for their favorite taste. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Junior Iron Chef program. The Deerfield Valley Food Pantry will be on-hand accepting food donations.

Also joining the Taste this year, Myron Mixon will be joined by Chef Robert Barral, owner of CafĂ© Province and former New England Culinary Institute executive chef paired with the Twin Valley Schools’ Junior Iron Chefs. They will start the day with a special demonstration on Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon will feature tastes from over a dozen restaurants, live music, craft fair and kids activities.

The Taste has also teamed up with the Deerfield Valley Healthcare Volunteers to help revive the popular “Art on the Mountain” three-day art show at Mount Snow.

The following day, Sunday, September 12, the Deerfield Valley Community Cares is organizing the Best Dam Walk —a great way to walk off any indulging at the Taste. There are several walks available. The one-way walk is the most appropriate for families and will begin at 10am. Each entering adult will be asked to have $50 worth of sponsors (five people at $10 each or any other combination) and each child under 12 will be asked to have $10 worth of sponsors. The walk will be held rain or shine.

Taste of the Deerfield Valley is sponsored by the Celebrate the Valley, Inc., the Town of Dover, g.housen, 92.7 WKVT, Outside Television and g. Housen. Tickets for the Taste are $15 for adults, $5 for children age 7-12, and free for children 6 and under. Cooking demonstration tickets are additional. For more information, please go to:
