Mangos Stay up Late in Hartford
Enjoy Mangos Around the Clock! Mango Hometown Tour arrives in Hartford on August 26, when two star local chefs will compete in a mango taste-off. Chef Chris Torla of Trumbull Kitchen and Chef Billy Grant of Grants Restaurant have been challenged to create a mango-inspired dish highlighting late-night cuisine and Hartford flair.
Come witness the throw-down first hand. Join us at Trumbull Kitchen on Friday, August 25 at 3:30 p.m. as three local experts judge the dishes, and then guests will taste both creations for themselves. The event is free and open to a select number of Hartford mango fans!

There is no cost to attend, but space is limited.
Local grocery store favorite, Price Chopper, will be part of the action as well. Besides showcasing different varieties of mangos, they will provide consumers with resources like recipes, tips for selecting and cutting a mango, as well fresh ingredients that complement the fruit’s bright flavor.
