Chicago’s Taste of the Nation® for No Kid Hungry will be held on Friday, November 8th, 2019.

Co-chaired by Joe Flamm, Executive Chef- Spiaggia, Diana Davila, Executive Chef and Owner- Mi Tocaya Antojeria, and Elissa Narow, Pastry Chef- Frontera Grill,  the 30th annual Chicago’s Taste of the Nation unites the region’s best chefs and mixologists.

You can look forward to bite-size fare, craft cocktails, and delectable desserts while mingling with Chicago’s top tastemakers- all of whom are coming together to donate their time, talent and passion to end childhood hunger in America. In addition to an incredible chef presence, Taste of the Nation will host a bartender Speakeasy with mixologists pouring specialty drinks as well as a Pastry Shop serving the city’s most sought after desserts and baked goods. Celebrated chefs from surrounding cities will also be serving delicious bites at the first “Taste of the Midwest” pop-up.

Doing good has never tasted better. 100% of proceeds support the No Kid Hungry campaign’s work to end childhood hunger in America.

Please note, Chicago’s Taste of the Nation is a 21+ event.
