Taste of the Symphony 2012, recap!

I am a few weeks late (ok, a month) in posting about theFlorence Symphony Guild's  Taste of the Symphony 2012...I guess you can dock my pay.  This year's event was themed "A Simply Southern Evening" and was thoroughly fantastic.  We had somewhere between 500 and 600 hundred people turn out to enjoy the festivities.  The decorations were lovely and the food was Divine!  It was a wonderful night and has me excited for next years event already. 
Even from the front gate, you knew you were in for an amazing evening!
I love the way the committee dressed up this gate!

The night was filled with friends, lots of laughter, wonderful drinks and probably the best food in the Pee Dee!  The chefs out did themselves this year providing such goodies as Low Country Shrimp & Grits, Quail & Grits, Mixed Seafood Crepes, Lamp Chops, Catfish Stew, Deep Fried Oysters, Blue Cheese Scones with Beef & Horseradish Chive-Cream.  There were also offerings of Sushi, Pork Tenderloin, Clam Chowder, Crab Cakes, Stuffed Mushrooms, Seared Breast of Duck with an amazing Roasted Beet Vinaigrette complemented with Fennel & Sun Dried Tomato Carolina Gold Risotto...not to mention more sweets than you can name.  I just can't say enough about how much the Chefs do to make this event special and to support the Florence Symphony Orchestra.  The Taste of the Symphony is a showcase of how much talent we have in our area and what a wonderful community we live in!
 
 
So, y'all mark your calendars for April 18, 2013 for the next Taste of the Symphony and join us for a fantastic night.  For more information on upcoming Florence Symphony Guild events please feel free to email: FlorenceSymphonyGuild@gmail.com
