Emmi Roth USA will be a national partner and the official specialty cheese sponsor at four Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation events, including the upcoming Taste of the Nation – San Francisco.
At Taste of the Nation – San Francisco, Emmi of Switzerland will feature Corporate Chef Evan Topel serving a Cornucopia Salad with Kaltbach Cave-aged Le Gruyère Switzerland AOC, a Truffle Kaltbach Cave-aged Mac & Cheese and Le Gruyère AOC Cheesecake with Concord Grapes. Guests will also have the opportunity to sample an Emmi of Switzerland specialty cheese flight, including Le Gruyère and Kaltbach cave-aged Le Gruyère.
Taste of the Nation events bring together chefs from around the country to raise money for the No Kid Hungry campaign. The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable meals through Cooking Matters. Since 1988, Taste of the Nation has raised more than $86 million.
“We are proud partners of the No Kid Hungry campaign, and sponsoring Taste of the Nation events is the perfect way to continue to show our support,” says Guido Kaelin, VP of Marketing at Emmi Roth USA. “We are excited to connect with chefs and food lovers around the country through these events, as we continue to support Share Our Strength’s mission to end childhood hunger in America.”
Taste of the Nation — San Francisco will be held March 21, 2013 at the historic Bently Reserve. Emmi of Switzerland will also sponsor Taste of the Nation – New York on April 29. Guests will have the opportunity to sample Roth specialty cheeses from Wisconsin at Taste of the Nation – Los Angeles on June 9, as well as Taste of the Nation – Chicago on August 7.
In addition to sponsoring the events, Emmi Roth USA will donate $1 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign for each new “like” on the Cheese 4 Chefs Facebook page during the event months of March, April, June and August 2013.
