U.S. food producers will be promoting wines, meats, cheeses and other foods at a public event Thursday in the Hotel Real Intercontinental in Escazú from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., said a U.S. Embassy release. The idea is to get the public and commercial outlets here to learn about the U.S. products.
Chefs David and Kristen Tallent of Bloomington, Indiana, are in charge of preparing the foodstuffs and selecting the appropriate wines, the embassy said. They have a restaurant in their hometown, called Restaurant Tallen. The restaurant specializes in local southern Indiana dishes, according to its Web page.
By no coincidence, U.S. Ambassador Anne S. Andrew is from Indiana. However, the wine is coming from California.
