IVEDC Taste of the Valley

The Stockmans Club in Brawley was the venue for the second Taste of the Valley event hosted by the Imperial Valley Economic Development Corporation on January 29, 2010.

The event was designed to promote the importance of agribusiness in the Imperial Valley.

In addition to a front area with tri-tip, salad, vegetables, dessert and samples of a locally produced olive oil, a contest was held in the back area of the club where four teams vied for the best recipe using local ingredients.

People’s choice winner was Brandt Beef while Judges’ choice went to Valley’s Best Sidekicks.  The Imperial Valley Vegetable Growers Association and Family-Fresh Farms rounded out the competitors.
