Top Chef Carla Hall was the guest judge today at the 2011 Taste of Del Ray sponsored by the Del Ray Business Association.
Families, couples, singles, babies in strollers and face painted toddlers all sampled delicious tidbits from fourteen local restaurants. Think sliders, ice cream, bruschetta, mini-chulupas and more, much more.
Chef Hall also had her own tent with samples of her bite size sweets and savories. Clearly a crowd favorite, she posed for pictures, signed cookbooks and talked to everyone.
Another crowd favorite was Pork Barrel Barbeque, sporting a recent first place trophy for their barbecue chicken. With the opening of their Del Ray flagship just weeks away, Brett and Heath have added something new to their product line - Que, Eau de Barbecue!
But maybe the biggest lines of all were at ACKC with their seemingly endless vats of Gifford’s Ice Cream. What’s not to love?
But hey, let’s get down to business. Who were the winners of the 2011 Taste of Del Ray?
