Jan. 31, 2012 - PRLog -- More than 1,000 food and wine enthusiasts will feast on the New York metro area’s finest foods, desserts, pastries and wines at South Nassau Communities Hospital's 19th Annual “An Evening of Good Taste” to be held at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, NY, on Monday, March 5, from 6PM – 9PM.

“Evening of Good Taste” includes a professionally judged competition, which is sanctioned by the Long Island Chapter of the American Culinary Federation.  It has divisions for schools, restaurants, vintners, bakeries and ice sculptors and awards are given for appetizers, entrées, desserts, overall table presentation, bread, viennoise, pastries, decorated cakes, wine display, vendor display and carved ice sculptures.  Patrons can also vote for their favorite selection in the People’s choice Award.
