This year’s 13 judges had their hands (and mouths) full, as more than 20 food purveyors presented their signature offerings in this year’s great Taste Edmonds taste-off, all vying for the honor of displaying the coveted “Best of the Taste” banner during this year’s festival.
Judges tasted and compared dishes in three categories – main dish, side dish and dessert assigning points for taste, authenticity, presentation, and “yum” factor, and an independent team of officials totaled up the points.
This year’s Best of the Taste winners are as follows:
Best Main Dish – The Bulgogi Bowl from Seoul Bowl
Best Side Dish – Roasted corn on the cob from Roasted Corn
Best Dessert – Ice cream from the Lopez Island Creamery.
