Hope you're hungry. It's Memorial Day weekend, and that means it's time for the Taste of Cincinnati. A huge crowd turns out every year to sample food from the area's finest restaurants. The idea for "Taste" came from an executive with a local restaurant favorite.
Today's Stumper is:
The suggestion for "Taste of Cincinnati" came from an executive with which company?
2. Jeff Ruby's Culinary Entertainment
The answer is Frisch's. According to the website for "Taste of Cincinnati" the festival started in 1979 as a one day event, at the suggestion of Karen Maier, vice president of marketing for Frisch's restaurants. She got the idea after reading about Taste of the Big Apple. The website says 5000 people attended the first "Taste" in Piatt Park. This weekend, 500,000 people are expected to sample food from 40 different restaurants. It's billed as the nation's longest running culinary arts festival.
