Ligonier Valley Historical Society offered an “epicurean adventure” with its 28th annual Tastes of the Town held April 25 at Laurel Mountain Ski Resort in Ligonier Township.

Part of the adventure was the trek up the mountain and through the woods to the ski lodge, offering sweeping vistas of the Ligonier Valley below.

The rest — and best part — of the adventure was sampling the foods: a culinary cornucopia of appetizers, entrees and desserts from some of the area’s finest restaurants, cafes, bakeries and delis.

Every year, diners cast votes for their favorites, with the winner awarded the Big Fork Award, which went to the ribs, au gratin potatoes and carrots from Foggy Mountain Lodge and Restaurant in Stahlstown.

Guests also take their chances on raffle prizes of items donated by local shops and galleries.

Event proceeds benefit educational programs at the Compass Inn Museum in Laughlintown, and supports the society’s mission of “Keeping Our History Alive.”

“Giving back has never tasted so good,” says LVHS executive director Theresa Gay Rohall.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
