Nearly 600 people crowded into the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center for the first Taste of Rehoboth in August 2013. The event was the brainchild of the Rehoboth Inspired Chefs Initiative, a group of local chefs and restaurant professionals from Rehoboth, in partnership with Milton’s Dogfish Head Brewery. It raised over $11,000 for the Food Bank of Delaware.
