Cooking In Olive Garden’s Test Kitchen

Olive Garden Orlando Yelp Elite Event.jpg

On Tuesday night, 30 lucky Elite Yelpers got the opportunity to tour the Darden Headquarters and get their hands 'doughy' in the Olive Garden Test Kitchens. Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida was on hand to tell the Yelp Elites about the 75 million pounds of food that Darden has donated as a part of the Darden Harvest program and the Elites generously donated $310 for Second Harvest (which, in food bank math, equals $2,790 worth of groceries!). The Chefs rewarded the Orlando Elites for their generosity and hard work with an 11-course tasting of the Olive Garden's new and improved menu! Read all of the reviews of the event here and see all of the fabulous photos on the Flickr page.
