Taste of the Nation 2010

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:

Classy Cocktail Lady of LUPEC

da Sel de Terre Baby-with Pom

Watermelon and Cucumber Infused Tequila, and their bronzed models

out in full force

Dessert tamales from Ole

Jody Adams of Rialto

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!
