The South Kingstown Parks and Recreation Department is offering a series of international food tastings on the bay as part of its summer adult-program schedule.

ATaste of Provence will feature the chefs at Wickford Gourmet, who have created a sampler of breads, cheeses, salads, and other goodies to conjure up the flavors of this famous culinary region of France. Fine food and a splash of wine will round out an unforgettable evening on the bay. The event will be held Wednesday, June 28, from to 7 to 9 p.m. The cost is $42 per person for residents and $49 for non-residents of South Kingstown.

A Taste of Spain will follow on July 5 and will include a tasting of sausage, cheese, olives, and other Mediterranean flavors of Spain. Sangria wine complements this evening's culinary excursion. The cost is $42 per person for residents and $49 for non-residents of South Kingstown.

Third in the series is A Taste of the Bay, on July 12, with platters of oysters, little necks, smoked fish, sweet mustard and cream cheese. Sample this raw bar while enjoying a two-hour sail. A Taste of India is scheduled for July 19 and A Taste of the Southwest is the final tasting opportunity on July 26.
