Chicagoist Food Pr0n: Hot Chocolate's Fourth Anniversary Beer Dinner

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Feb 24, 2009 4:30PM

Last night Mindy Segal brought together some of the best chefs in the city to celebrate Hot Chocolate's fourth anniversary with a $100 per person dinner to benefit Share Our Strength, a non-profit that works with local food banks, restaurants and community groups to combat hunger at home. Segal is the chair of Share Our Strength's "Taste of the Nation" event, scheduled for August 13 at Ravenswood Billboard Factory (Full disclosure: this Chicagoist staffer is also on the event committee).

Segal and her guest chefs, Bill Kim, Brian Huston, Chris Pandel, Stephanie Izard and Elissa Narow, put together an 8-course dinner paired with beer selections from Boulevard, Goose Island, Piece, Unibroue, Three Floyds and Dogfish Head that screamed "we aren't messing around this evening."
