At last, Taste of the Nation ( has returned to the Hudson Valley, and I can think of nowhere more appropriate for it to be showcased than at the Culinary Institute of America ( Created by Share Our Strength (, this wonderful nationwide fundraiser supports anti-hunger programs and unites the efforts of those of us who believe that food is more than just a profession — as we feed others for a living, we strongly believe that no human being should go hungry, whatever the circumstances. Join me as I taste my way through the rooms of the CIA with Tara, one of my best friends (and an affable partner in crime).

Following are the highlighted tastings from our adventure:
