The Iowa Pork Producers Association is holding its 32nd annual Iowa Pork Taste of Elegance competition and our pork-loving consumers are once again invited to join us in the celebration!

The Taste of Elegance is a professional chef competition with Iowa pork as the center of the plate! A closed judging portion is followed by a tasting reception where attendees enjoy savory samples of the chefs’ competition dishes. This year’s chefs will all be challenged to create an unforgettable entrée with the pork tenderloin cut.

Iowa wineries and breweries will serve samples throughout the evening in a semi-elegant setting with a complimentary dessert bar, a live pianist and accessible cash bar. This unique event celebrates Iowa pork while joining farmers from across the state with consumers who love their product!
