In every episode Taste and Toast, host Ashanti Middleton raises her glass and lowers her fork to review the best foods, beverages, and cocktails at eateries across the country.
She takes viewers into the belly of the feast with a casual style and high-class swagger combination that has won the hearts of foodies from all walks of life!
Taste and Toast speaks to a new generation of socially networked, mobilized, tech-savvy, culturally aware individuals seeking the most adventurous, interesting, culturally relevant, and tasty restaurants around.
