Yesterday At Taste of the Nation: Photos Of Hunger-Fighting Food

Taste of the Nation Los Angeles had its annual event yesterday at the Culver City Media Park, and as usual, there was a lot of good food and drink. All ticket sales, as well as money received from charitable donations and the silent auction, went directly toward fighting childhood hunger.

There were demonstrations and stage appearances from chefs like Michael Voltaggio, Ludovic Lefebvre, Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, as well as a a huge selection of prizes available through auctions and raffle tickets. All told, it was a highly successful and well run event, with food lines never lasting longer than three or four minutes. Visit the Taste of the Nation website for more information about the cause, and take a look at our photo gallery after the jump.
