taste of the nation boston 2011

After months of planning and preparations, Taste of the Nation Boston has already come and gone. Once it’s here it always seems to go by so quickly, but as always, the night was a huge success. For most of the night Bethany – my PR partner in crime – and I manned the press booth, but here and there we were able to sneak away to get some photographs of the wonderful people who made the night so special.

Below is just a snapshot of the evening and I’ll be posting these photos and more to the Share Our Strength Boston Facebook page later today. But the PR team – including Bethany, Shannon, Ann and Lindsay – brought in some fabulous Boston food bloggers, many of whom have already shared their amazing recaps of the event: Fun and Fearless in Beantown, We Are Not Martha, A Boston Food Diary, Delicious Dishings, Travel, Wine, Dine and Confessions of a Chocoholic.

My quick stroll began with a visit to Chef Richard Garcia and Mike Rosa of 606 Congress

I was also able to steal a shot of Chef Garcia’s asparagus soup…

Next up, I recharged with some macarons from Levy Restaurants, which were light, crunchy and delicious…

Toward the end of the night I was also able to try a hobnob cookie with PB and homemade plum jam from Craigie on Main

I of course had to make a stop at Whole Foods, who are always huge supporters of the event! They had a delicious, one hundred percent sustainable spread that included a smoked smelt, mini potato latke with creme freche, american sturgeon caviar and farming turtle micro greens…

Plus, a vegetarian option – yucca chips with grillos pickles…

I was also able to quickly catch up with some Boston Bloggah buddies… Becca of Girls’ Pint Out and Peter!

I say this every year, but I can’t stress enough how proud I am of this event. 100 percent of ticket sales and proceeds support Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger. To get involved you can take the No Kid Hungry Pledge and also find out if there is an event in your city.

Have you ever attended a Taste of the Nation event, in Boston or elsewhere?
