Lodge takes on culinary soiree

Taste of Agassiz will continue after all

The Taste of Agassiz will live on, despite the folding of the organizing committee.

The popular event will be hosted by the Fraser River Lodge this year, after a successful event at the same location last year.

The Taste of Agassiz is an upscale evening highlighting local culinary delights, served by the top chefs of Agassiz area restaurants.

The Lodge’s event coordinator, Jenna Kliever, said this year’s Taste of Agassiz will follow the same concept, with mingling, music and plenty of food.

The Taste of Agassiz ran for five years, by a group of volunteers with a vested interest in the agricultural and food industries. They included Debra Amrein-Boyes, Georgia Kliever, Ken Schwaerzle, Bruce Swift and Victoria Brookes.

However, the volunteer committee members issued a plea to the community last year, to see if someone else could take the reins. After hosting the event successfully, the lodge owners decided to take it on.

To celebrate their new endeavor, the lodge is featuring their own executive chef Miodrag Sretenovic, and their sous chef, Corey Fields.

The cost will remain the same, at $50 a ticket.

Barton’s Insurance is sponsoring the event, which is being held November 4 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. If the event continues to be successful, Kliever said they will look at ways to turn the Taste of Agassiz into a fundraiser for the Agassiz Agricultural Society, which would benefit both the local 4H and the Agassiz Fall Fair.

Tickets are available at the Fraser River Lodge. For more information, phone 604-796-1210.
