The third annual Taste Fore the Tour, a fundraiser for the Twin Cities-based VEAP food pantry, takes place this weekend. Although tickets are sold out, it arrives with the second edition of the special Taste of the Tour Celebrity Recipe Collection, now available for sale.
Proceeds help raise money to make meals, supporting the great work that VEAP (Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People) does by providing access to healthy foods and social services to individuals living in Bloomington, Edina, and south Minneapolis. Each year, VEAP distributes over 4 million pounds of food to over 27,000 members in need.
The organizers of the sold-out tournament have also created a celebrity-studded recipe collection to raise additional funds.
The $30 cookbook contains recipes from 25 local and nationally known chefs and personalities, including chefs Ann Ahmed, Mike DeCamp, Gavin Kaysen, Mark Hagen, Diane Moua, Justin Sutherland, and Andrew Zimmern, plus personalities like Jason DeRusha, Dave Lee, Lou Nanne, Tony Oliva, Lee Valsvik, Ron Schara, and more.
