If anyone needs a reason for going to any future IdeaFestival held in Louisville I can provide one. In addition to all of the amazing speakers that I got to enjoy, there was the event called "Taste of Innovation". It was held Thursday night at The Galt House and the theme was "Think Global, Eat Local".  Below is a list of participants courtesy of the IdeaFestival and all I can say is yummmm!!! I sampled just about everything and I have to add, "Thank God for Rooibee Red Tea" since I'm pregnant and everyother offered beverage I could find had alcohol in it.
