HOWELL (WWJ) – From casual fare to gourmet cuisine, the Taste of Livingston County is set to satisfy every palate. The event takes place Saturday from 11:30 am until 3 pm in the cafeteria at Howell High School, 1200 West Grand River.

The Taste of Livingston County is one of the more popular attractions at the Livingston County Home & Garden Show. The event features generous samples from 18 of the area’s finest restaurants, caterers and delis.

“The menu at this year’s Taste is very diverse and includes delicious treats such as filet mignon tips and a hand-carved Black Angus top round carving station, homemade bratwurst, pizza, quesadillas, chocolate-covered strawberries, cupcakes, fresh-brewed coffees and teas, and more. It’s also an affordable luxury, providing a nice lunch outing with the family,” event coordinator Carol Donovan said in a release.
