Where: Fair Market
The lowdown: Central Texas-based chefs, restaurants, sommeliers, mixologists, and culinary lovers gathered at Fair Market on February 7 to help end child hunger at Austin's Taste of the Nation event series debut for No Kid Hungry.
Co-hosted by Austin chefs Bryce Gilmore, chef-owner of Barley Swine, and Amanda Rockman, culinary director of New Waterloo, the event brings together 30 of the city’s culinary leaders for a delicious night of bites and libations.
DJ Jester spun tunes while attendees dined on dishes from Austin's hottest restaurants and bars, including Launderette, Half Step, Il Brutto, Paperboy, and Goodall's Kitchen. All of the proceeds from the event benefitted No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America.
