Taste of Warwick, from both sides of the table

    To the editor: As a business owner here in Warwick for the past three and a half years and a resident for over 20 years, I have had the opportunity to be involved in many events, either directly or indirectly. Last evening, I experienced for the first time from the other side of the table the annual Taste of Warwick, an event sponsored by the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce that brings together local restaurants, farms, gourmet shops and caterers featuring a sampling of their fine cuisine. Having myself been a three-time participant, I decided this year for a variety reasons to attend rather than participate. I am glad I did because it gave me a renewed appreciation for what a wonderful evening this is. Tasting all the delicious food under the tent in the beautiful setting of the Warwick Valley Winery, and acknowledging how much hard work and dedication it takes to pull it off, I can only sit back and congratulate all involved. For those of you who have never attended, I suggest you put it on your calendar now for next September. I also thank all the local business who so graciously donated their time and talents to make this a success. Patricia Flynn La Petite Cuisine Warwick
