Chicagoist Food Pr0n: Taste of the Nation

By Carrie Becker in Food on Aug 13, 2010 6:00PM

Last night more than 1,000 local food lovers loosened their belts and opened their wallets for the annual Share Our Strength Taste of the Nation at the Aragon Ballroom. Shocked by the astounding number that more than 12.4 million children face hunger across our great nation (1 out of every 4 children in Chicago runs the risk of going hungry), Chef Mindy Segal and Hub 51 Owner RJ Melman rallied local chefs and mixologists to donate their time and culinary talent to deliver a succulent spread of small bites, inspired by street food, and inventive cocktails.

We were in food pr0n heaven and have the photos to prove it. Enjoy!
