If you haven't heard of the Share Our Strength / Taste of the Nation events, well, you're about to. Mindy Segal is one of the co-chairs of the program and when she's not running her restaurant Hot Chocolate she's been crazy busy setting up one of the most interesting and promising culinary events of the year.

She's bringing together some of the city's best chefs, pastry chefs, mixologists, and brewers to the Ravenswood Billboard Factory on August 13th to raise money to benefit causes related to childhood hunger.
