The event is held on the Tampa campus of Hillsborough Community College, and students from the college's culinary department will be on hand serving up food made with ingredients provide by Tampa's Vigo Importing Company.

"We are proud to help with the event, and give the HCC culinary students a chance to work alongside professional chefs at the event," said Alessandra Alessi, of Vigo Importing Company.

A portion of the proceeds from Sunday's "Taste of Westshore" will be donated to help support HCC's culinary school, which graduates highly trained students in the hotel, restaurant, and service industry.
