Each year the Edison Chamber of Commerce and the Pines Manor proudly host the incredibly successful Taste of Middlesex. It was a very popular community-wide eating frenzy event where fine dining eateries showcased their culinary skills to satisfy our taste buds.  All ticket purchasers received a 90-day 15% discount dining card to participating eateries. This discount card cannot be combined with any other offers.

We filled the room with 40 food and 10 beverage participants! Over 575 people came to taste the scrumptious food samplings and sip fine wine, beer and spirits.

The Edison Chamber of Commerce is pleased to fulfill our social responsibility by helping several local non-profit organizations, including Middlesex County College Foundation, through this event.  Hands of Hope for the Community received the donated non-perishable food and Renovation House took home delicious and healthy leftover food for the residents.

This was a spectacular event!
