By now I'm sure you've heard me mention, at least 10,000 times, how excited I am to be attending this year's Taste of the NFL's Party with a Purpose. Now in it's 24th year the "Party with a Purpose" pairs chefs from all 32 NFL markets with some of the greatest NFL players ever in an effort to raise money for food banks around the United States.
Chefs John Howie of Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar in Seattle and Steve DiFillippo of Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Boston are representing this year's two Superbowl Bound Teams, along with 40 award winning chefs from around the country, and will be creating something spectacular, for attendees to taste.
Chef Howie will serve his signature tortilla soup with shrimp-avocado ceviche relish (get the recipe)

and Chef DiFillippo will be serving his signature hand-rolled potato gnocchi with braised veal, beef, pork and tomato sauce. (get the recipe here)
Both sound delicious to me and I can't wait to see what the other chefs have up their sleeve for this event. Be sure to follow along on social media #KICKHUNGER & #TasteoftheNFL for all updates of the event.
