Taste of Amelia – 25th Anniversary

Taste Of Amelia

The 25th Anniversary Taste of Amelia Island is just two weeks away.  Join us Friday, November 18th, from 6 to 9 p.m., at Omni Amelia Island Plantation, in the Amelia Ballroom and adjoining lobby. For the first time, Burlingame will be participating in this great annual event.  Chef Chad Livingston is preparing a taste of his exceptional Pork Tenderloin dish from our summer menu.   Come enjoy smokey pork tenderloin & bbq green beans on a Johnny cake at the Burlingame booth and check out the other great fare offered by Amelia Island’s superb restaurants while supporting the Nassau Volunteer Center.


This year sees the return of the island’s best Chefs and Restaurant.  Complimenting the food will be a selection of fine wines, a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, live music, and the event’s first-ever “Best Dish of the Taste” award, voted on by attendees.  A completely re-branded event, this year’s silver anniversary Taste will be designed and decorated by Robyn Branch Design, with other special touches provided by our audio-visual partner, Encore Event Technologies.

From fine dining to pub fare to seafood, ethnic food and down home southern country cooking and delicious desserts, this year’s Taste is a foodie celebration.

Great Cause
