Meet the Chefs 2018 is my 2nd time going and I was counting down until the day arrived. I don’t have the time to travel all over so this lets me get a feel of what’s out there and what I need to eat next. Event space The Vault, located in downtown Tampa, is where Meet the Chefs happened. I’ve been there a few times and all I can imagine is “wow, this is a great space for someone’s wedding reception”(no, not mine…that’s not happening no time soon).
For newbies, it’ll feel overwhelming walking in and not knowing where to start. There are so many choices to pick from that you don’t want to make the “wrong” decision. My suggestion: start with the entrees first, grab a drink to wash it down, and end with dessert.
I had a ball at Meet the Chefs this year and can’t wait to see who’s going to be included in the lineup. I guess I think no one knows who I am so it was surprising when a few attendees came up to me to say hello. Of course, we chatted and talked about the event, agreeing we both were having fun.
