Event Details

About the 10th Annual Taste of DeSoto


The Taste of DeSoto is a unique food tasting event highlighting the cuisine of approximately 50 restaurants in DeSoto and surrounding counties.


The Taste of Desoto began when local business owner and caterer, John Woods, shared his vision with Tom and Cindy Pittman of the Desoto Times-Tribune to create a culinary event that would highlight the cuisine of local restaurants and chef’s, promote their business to a wider public and raise monies for local charities that may not have the infrastructure to have an annual fundraiser.  Woods and the Pittmans pooled their resources and teamed up with The American Liver Foundation and later the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi and many dedicated volunteers to create an event that has become one of the largest and best attended fundraisers in North Mississippi.  Though a percentage of the proceeds continue to go the ALF in honor of local businessman and liver transplant recipient, Tim Mote, most of the monies raised remains in North Mississippi to support worthy causes, including an endowment at Northwest Mississippi Community College for the promotion of the culinary arts and the Hotel/Restaurant Management Department
