Richmond Heights artist trades for Taste of Maplewood Booth; Taste winners

Richmond Heights artist, Andi Kozak, has art displayed at Tiffany’s Diner and wanted a booth at Taste of Maplewood, but said the price was a little expensive for her as an artist. So she proposed a trade with the Maplewood Chamber of Commerce.

“I was really over the moon when they liked what I did,” she said. “Jeannine (Beck, chamber director) said ‘oh yeah—normally they’re just paper—this is great.’”

Kozak said she had a great day and made a lot of contacts. “I love supporting the chamber. I’m happy to be involved.”

Taste of Maplewood winners:

  • Best Sweet Tooth – Maya Cafe – Spicy Apple Empanada
  • Best Savory – The Wood – Stuffed Zephyr Slider
  • Best Cocktail – Las Palmas – Ginger Palomita
  • Best Overall Taste of Maplewood -Maya Cafe – Spicy Apple Empanada
