FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Some of the best chefs in Northwest Arkansas whipping up culinary concoctions at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks for this year’s Chefs in the Garden.
A dozen chefs from several Northwest Arkansas eateries like Bordinos, Cafe Rue Orleans, and Tula gave people a taste of what they offer.
Mike and Deena Wright came from Springdale to the event. “We’ve been to like 4 restaurants so far. Restaurants we may not have ever walked into have we not been here to sample their food,” Deena said.
“It’s a great event, a good cause, wonderful food, great people,” Mike said. “Excellent, excellent adventure.”
Andrew Harrison lives in Fayetteville. He says this gives him a taste of what local restaurants have to offer. “This is actually good exposure for me to the local restaurants,” Harrison said. “I’m gonna try a sample of what they offer.”
Tonight’s event was sold out.
Ticket sales benefited not only the garden, but the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank as well.
