Share Our Strength’s ~TASTE OF THE NATION~ returns to AT&T Park on Thursday April 29th, featuring top chefs and mixologists, all of whom are coming together to donate their time, talent, and passion to end childhood hunger in America. Instead of a walk-around tasting and sit-down dinner, this year will just feature a tasting on the Club Level of AT&T Park.
You will be able to sample tastes from 40+ of the finest chefs in San Francisco, including Steffan Terje of Barbacco/Perbacco, Jennifer Biesty of Scala’s Bistro, Mark Sullivan of Spruce, Matthew Accarrino of SPQR, Hoss Zaré of Zaré at Fly Trap, and many more, including SFTaste’s Honorary Chair, Traci des Jardins, of Jardinière, Mijita, and Public House. There will also be signature cocktails from local mixologists and wines from around California, plus music, a silent auction, and other activities. 100% of ticket sales ensure no kid in America grows up hungry.
The VIP session starts an hour early (running from 5:30pm-9:30pm), and allows guests to hang out with four of the top bartenders in San Francisco, learn how they make their specialty cocktails, sample the goods, and take home some of the ingredients. Plus there will be “sneak peeks” from several chefs whose restaurants will be opening this spring (like Lauren Kiino of Bracina, and I have been hearing rumors of preview tastes from an upcoming SoMa restaurant that starts with “B”).
Tickets for Taste of the Nation San Francisco are $85 for General Admission and $140 for the VIP admission. But tablehopper subscribers get a discounted ticket price: $75 instead of $85 (use code Tblhop), and $120 instead of $140 (use code TblhopVIP).
