Traci Des Jardins is San Francisco's honorary chair of Share Our Strength, a nonprofit with the motto "no kid hungry," and she's pulled together an impressive selection of culinary talents for Thursday's Taste of the Nation benefit. More than 40 chefs and restaurants are participating; the teaser list that's been released includes Dominique Crenn of Luce, Jen Biesty of Scala's Bistro, Mark Sullivan of Spruce, Matthew Accarrino of SPQR, Hoss Zaré of Zaré at Fly Trap, and Elizabeth Falkner of Citizen Cake.

A VIP option not only allows a ticket holder to enter an hour earlier, which can be a key advantage at tasting events, they'll also preview flavors from forthcoming restaurants including Bar Agricole, Plum, and Benu and sample wines from RN74's Rajat Parr and cocktails from HMS Cocktails. The full 100 percent of proceeds go to the cause. Details after the jump.
