Here are some quotes on the event from our employees and some attendees:
Michael Goodman - VP of Food and Beverage Operations
Thank you so much for having your excellent restaurant – Morgan’s – participate in our Rotary’s annual “Taste of Lakeville” fundraiser! It was such a pleasure to see people lined up seven deep at your tent – the food was marvelous – fresh and beautifully prepared – just like every day at Morgan’s. I should know, I eat there often enough!
The “Taste of Lakeville” is a Lakeville treasure – thanks to food vendors like you all at Morgan’s, and to the tremendously supportive Lakeville citizens – we raise more than $100,000 each year, and it all stays in Lakeville! Your participation means that Rotary can provide mentors for middle and high school students; we can support Lakeville’s seniors, and Lakevillians without food, or a roof over their heads. We can provide playgrounds for the handicapped and staff to help local non-profits shelter and strengthen desperate, abused women and children.
Thanks to Morgan’s, and other fine local restaurants, the Rotary is able to give meaningful support to the community we all love. Thank you so much for your participation!

While being somewhat new to the area, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The weather was being uncooperative, and we had A LOT of setup to do. However, upon arrival there was electricity in the air (and not from the weather). I started to get excited! It's hard not to though, when you're serving All Natural Grassfed Tenderloin!! Our Chefs were delicately slicing the Strauss Farms (Franklin, WI) Filet and serving it over a Creamy Onion Risotto that they were making ON THE FLY right there in our tent! The Cream and butter for the Risotto were from Hope Creamery in Hope, MN! Lastly, we topped it with a Smoked Tomato Demi-Glace made with Steve's Hydroponic Tomatoes out of Wells, MN! 3 of the 6 Local farmers we work with, were represented in this offering. Word quickly got around, and before we knew it there was a line of people braving the weather to sample our wares. At the end of it all, we met a bunch of great people, sampled some great food, and received the Judge's choice award for Best Food Item! Thank you Lakeville and everyone involved in Taste of Lakeville for the opportunity and hospitality!! See you next year!

The Morgan's Farm to Table concept is amazing, and that is reflected in their excellent food. I'm also really proud to say that the owners reside in Lakeville and are outstanding community members. Morgan's has my full support!
