Taste of the Nation is coming up June 14 in Culver City and could still use a few more volunteers. More than 45 restaurants including Bazaar and Animal are participating so I imagine the volunteers will work hard but get plenty of tastes. Check out the website at Tasteofthenationla.org and then contact Paul Dreyer, firstname.lastname@example.org or 310/383-3499 for info on volunteering.
Taste of the Nation is held in Culver City from 1-4 pm and there's also a Mole cookoff with Jonathan Gold, cooking demonstrations and an honorary award for Nancy Silverton. Proceeds go to Share our Strength to fight children's hunger, and tickets start at $115.
