Put on your fancy pants because Taste of the Nation is coming to San Francisco's City View at the Metreon this Thursday. In its 8th year, the annual culinary benefit will bring together some of the City's most celebrated chefs to raise money for No Kid Hungry, a campaign dedicated to ending childhood hunger by providing children with healthy food and nutritional programs.
Attendants can nosh on bites from some 56 Bay Area restaurants. This includes dishes from Michael Tusk (Quince, Cotogna), Mark Liberman (AQ, TBD), Thomas McNaughton (flour+water, central kitchen and salumeria), Charles Phan (Slanted Door), David Bazirgan (Dirty Habit), Nancy Oakes (Boulevard), James Syhabout (Commis), Gayle Pirie (Foreign Cinema), and others.
There will also be beverages from wineries, distilleries, and breweries. Plymouth Gin is bringing in bartender Maxwell Britten from Maison Premiere, a James Beard-nominated oyster house and cocktail den in Brooklyn, to pair some drinks with Hog Island Oysters. He'll be mixing up three cocktails: Delta Deanna (Plymouth Gin, lime juice, celery juice, celery bitters, and Mumm champagne), Southern Cross (Plymouth Gin, Muscadet, and orange bitters), and Staghound (Plymouth Gin and Oloroso Sherry).
The event will also host live entertainment and a silent auction with luxury items.
