Last Tuesday, my guy and I were invited to an amazing tasting event that my BBF's company organized for Bravo's Top Chef Masters. I think you all know by now that I'm a total foodie, so naturally this event was right up my alley, plus there was a photo booth where we got to play dress up (always a plus in my book). The event was hosted by Chase Sapphire Preferred, along with Bravo. Andy Cohen and Curtis Stone were in attendance (obvi) and 11 amazing chefs, seven of which were featuring tastings of dishes straight from the show!

The food was amazing! The cocktails - just as yummy... And even better, the proceeds from the event went towards a good cause.  Chase Sapphire Preferred announced a donation of $25K to City Harvest, a food rescue organization dedicated to helping feed a tremendous amount of hungry New Yorkers each year.

Now lets talk about the food... My favorite part was the gift bag... With featured recipes of the seven dishes we were able to try along with a "foodie survival kit" featuring all the basis essentials when it comes to spices. I can't wait tot try out some of the recipes, which of course I will share here... But to give you a sneak peak, and to make your mouth water, here are a few snap shots for your viewing pleasure.
