I attended the Taste of the Nation in New Haven this past Wednesday, March 14, 2012. It was AMAZING.
I walked into a huge room filled with booths, each booth was run by a different local restaurant. They each had about two samples of food on a small plate about two inches around. The variety of foods was absolutely extraordinary. I tried foods that I’ve been meaning to try for years including steak tartare and foie gras. They also had recipes with a twist that I never would have thought of such as carrot soup with rum and green tea smoothies. For those that prefer more traditional food there were many options including sliders, pulled pork, and ribs. There is no way to describe all the drinks and food there but I would highly recommend attending one of these events.
What is Taste of the Nation?
Taste of the Nation began in 1988 with a mission to end childhood hunger. They bring together the best chefs and mixologists to nearly 40 cities across the nation to raise money to donate to charities that fight childhood hunger. They believe that no child should ever go hungry. When you purchase tickets to this event 100% of your money goes to this cause because the entire event is run by volunteers. In New Haven last Wednesday $32,102.90 was donated to local charities. What a huge contribution!
