Help end child hunger by gathering your closest foodie friends and attending the 7th annual Share Our Strength Taste of the Nation event June 8th at the Montage resort in Laguna Beach.
A handful of celebrity chefs, including celebrity chef Ludo Lefebvre of Los Angeles (pictured); Nina Compton of Fontainebleau in Miami Beach; Greg Daniels of Haven Gastropub in Orange; Chef Alan Greeley of The Golden Truffle in Costa Mesa; and L.A.-based Duff Goldman from Charm City Cakes, will be preparing fresh farm-to-table delicacies to be enjoyed with wine, signature cocktails, and the panoramic ocean views. The event will also feature a silent auction, and a live auction, along with live entertainment by O.C. band, The Kalama Brothers. There will also be a Celebrity Chef Tasting, and a VIP "Meet the Chefs" reception. Last year, Taste of the Nation Laguna Beach raised more than $200,000 to help connect children in need with up to two million meals.
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $200 per person, or $225 at the door for the tasting alone. To attend the VIP reception, tickets are $275 in advance or $300 at the door. For tickets, and more information, go to ce.strenght.org/events/taste-nation-laguna-beach.
