The general admission for this weekend's 7th Annual Share Our Strength Taste of the Nation event at Studio at the Montage is $200. If you want to get the VIP admission, where you get to attend a "Meet The Chefs" reception after dinner, it'll be $275.
No, it ain't cheap. But this is a charity event where 100% of each ticket helps support the Share Our Strength charity in eliminating childhood hunger. The Montage's resident chefs Craig Strong and Lee Smith will be there, joined by such celebrity chefs as Ludo Lefebvre and Alan Wong, and also, local chefs Alan Greeley of Golden Truffle and Greg Daniels of Haven Gastropub.
The tasting event runs 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and includes wine, specialty cocktails, and music and that view. The chef meet-and-greet is immediately after that and runs until 9 p.m.
