A Taste of Happiness Supper Club

Last night I attended a Supper Club event at a private home in Sanford created by A Taste of Happiness.  A Taste of Happiness is the brainchild of Chef Juan “Jay” Arjona & Chef Doug Long both who have impressive restaurant resumes which you can read on their website. The event was non-profit and donated all the proceeds to Just Our Soldiers Helpers (JOSH) https://justoursoldiershelpers.org/

Each month A Taste of Happiness has an event and they donate the proceeds to a different charity.

A Taste of Happiness website is here http://itastehappiness.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/A.Taste.Of.Happiness.2012

If you would like to attend the next event which is scheduled for the end of October please contact A Taste of Happiness on their website. 

The food was excellent, a great combination of flavors, hard work and creativity.

A few of the dishes that really stood out to me were: the Stuffed Jalapeno Appetizer that was on a wonderful bed of sour pineapple and coconut cream.


The other standout dish was the compressed watermelon infused with ginger and served with a small slice of Chorizo and a layer of Balsamic vinegar on the bottom. The watermelon paired with in the Chorizo was a superb unexpected combo which I really enjoyed.
