Foodies, families, and friends gathered to sample the delicious culinary creations of local chefs at the fourth annual Taste of Wilson County held on the lawn of Wilson Bank and Trust on October 18th. This year’s event raised thousands of dollars to benefit the Lebanon/ Wilson County Chamber of Commerce’s education programs. VIP attendees were treated to deviled quail eggs, truffle mac and cheese, tuna tartar, and acorn squash soup shooters from Forte Chefs.
