This Saturday I'm going to share some pictures from an event and organization I love: Share our Strength's Taste of the Nation: Boston. This year 1 in 4 children went hungry in America. Taste of the Nation is a 100% volunteer driven event to raise money for SOS which they then redistribute to hunger-relief organizations around the Boston area and the rest of the United States. Top chefs and businesses volunteer their food, wine, cocktails, and service to the event, and it's always a blast. This is my second year volunteering (For Pictures of Last year, see this post) and after working a 2 hr shift, I got to join in the festivities. Here are a few pictures:

The most amazing marshmallows in the world. Made from agar-agar instead of gelatin and infused with passionfruit or blackberry. OUT OF THIS WORLD. Going back to Market just for these.
It was an amazing event and I can't wait to return next year. I wish some of these top chefs had focused more on vegetables, because everything was very meat-heavy, but I loved all the emphasis on Local foods
Enjoy your weekend!
