Spotlight: Taste! Central Florida

Many of Central Florida’s finest purveyors of food and drink will be in one place tonight – at the Orlando World Center Marriott for an event called “Taste! Central Florida.” The exclamation point after the word “taste” says that’s what attendees get to do: sample some of the area’s finest signature dishes and libations (many of those drinks are the grown-up kind)…for a good cause. This is one of the biggest annual fundraisers for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.

Second Harvest’s Maureen Mikel tells 90.7’s Nicole Darden Creston about the event, starting with what guests can expect.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined WMFE in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy. When local issues have received international attention, Nicole has reported worldwide for TV news outlets such as CNN, HLN, ABC, Fox News Channel, and BBC News 24.

When she’s off duty, Nicole can often be found performing with one of Central Florida’s many theatre companies, or taking in local arts, culture and music.
