Taste of the Nation South Florida: Chefs and Locals Feed Hungry Kids

Taste of the Nation, the annual event to end childhood hunger in America took place last night in the grand Americana ballroom at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. It was an evening filled with lots of food, drinks, chefs, and prizes.

The event was followed by a Chef After Party where chefs and VIP ticket buyers got to rendezvous poolside in the Loews cabanas. Shake Shack, Misha's cupcakes, Bombay Sapphire all provided food and drink -- that is if you could eat or drink any more. The three-hour -- four for VIP ticket holders - event was already enough to leave you in a food coma. Pictures and our picks for best dishes following the jump.
