Taste of the Nation

Executive Chef Kim Canteenwalla, Executive Chef Carlos Guia, Executive Chef David Spero

Because TravelsinTaste.com is always on the lookout for a way to give back, we frequently sponsor charitable events hosted by organizations such as Share Our Strength, which works with the culinary industry to feed the nearly 17 million children facing hunger in the United States. When we saw that Carlos Guia, executive chef of The Country Club at Wynn Las Vegas, was chairman of this year's Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation – Las Vegas, taking place June 2 at the Palms Casino Resort, we knew the event would be a huge success -- and we wanted to be a part of it! We therefore sought out Chef Guia, along with Kim Canteenwalla, executive chef of Society Café Encore, and David Spero, executive chef of Tableau, to discuss their commitment to ending hunger while getting a sneak peek at the event, including what guests can expect and what dishes this trio of culinary experts will be preparing.

The Country Club

First, we spoke with Chef Guia, who brought us up to speed with more detail about the event. "Taste of the Nation as an event is part of Share Our Strength, which is a 20-year-old organization that is committed to ending childhood hunger in America," Chef Guia explained. "Right now, about 17 percent of children are 'food insecure,' which means that they don't know where their next meal is going to come from or if they are even going to have a next meal. As chefs, we're very committed to helping out and giving back to the community as much as we can with our time, food, etc. It's bringing more awareness [to the issue of childhood hunger]."
