Enjoy an evening of unlimited food, drinks and spectacular views of our dynamic San Diego Bay waterfront at Taste of the Port on Thursday, September 21, 2017. With a focus on sustainable cooking with locally-sourced ingredients and fresh fish, this second annual event will feature fare from top waterfront restaurants; a variety of beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages; live entertainment; a sushi booth; and a live cooking competition during which three of San Diego’s premier chefs face off and battle to be named the 2017 Green Chef of the Bay.
Taste of the Port, organized and hosted by the Port of San Diego, will take place from 5:30 – 9:30 p.m. on September 21, 2017 at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier at 1000 North Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101.
New to Taste of the Port, and during VIP-hour only, VIPs will enjoy live demos provided by local fishermen on how to filet a fish and shuck an oyster. San Diego’s commercial fishing industry reels in a variety of seafood that can be purchased at local stores and markets – including the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market on Saturdaymornings where local chefs can pick up anything from Ahi and Cal King Crab to Swordfish and Urchin to serve at their restaurants.
“We are proud of the Port of San Diego waterfront and we believe in the safekeeping and environmental care of it – land and sea. Together with our partners and sponsors, this event promotes and encourages sustainable cooking with locally-sourced ingredients to ensure San Diego Bay is and will be a vital resource for years to come,” said Port Chairman Robert “Dukie” Valderrama.
In partnership with Cleantech San Diego, Green Love Associated Students at San Diego State University, and Ocean Connectors, Taste of the Port is the perfect opportunity to sample cuisine from around the waterfront and to be part of the Port of San Diego’s progressive sustainability efforts in a fun and enjoyable way.
Taste of the Port is part of the Port of San Diego’s Green Port Month in September – a time to promote sustainability and to increase environmental awareness among San Diego residents and visitors.
