It is a sin to eat food without taking Allah's name.

Assalam oalikum,
Allah has forbidden us to eat that food on which his name has not been taken. For eg: when we sacrifice animals on Bakri-Eid, Allah's name is taken before the animal is sacrificed. This makes the meat of that animal halal or permissible for us to eat.
وَلاَ تَأْكُلُواْ مِمَّا لَمْ يُذْكَرِ اسْمُ اللّهِ عَلَيْهِ وَإِنَّهُ لَفِسْقٌ وَإِنَّ الشَّيَاطِينَ لَيُوحُونَ إِلَى أَوْلِيَآئِهِمْ لِيُجَادِلُوكُمْ وَإِنْ أَطَعْتُمُوهُمْ إِنَّكُمْ لَمُشْرِكُونَ (6:121)
• 6:121 (Asad) Hence, eat not of that over which God's name has not been pronounced: for this would be sinful conduct indeed. And, verily, the evil impulses [within men's hearts] whisper unto those who have made them their own [106] that they should involve you in argument [as to what is and what is not a sin]; and if you pay heed unto them, lo! you will become [like] those who ascribe divinity to other beings or forces beside God. [107] -
Chapter 6, Al-Anam, verse 121 of the Quran mentions that the meat that has been sacrificed without taking Allah's name is haraam or forbidden for the followers of Islam.
It is also compulsary to take Allah's name before eating food otherwise satan, who steals food to satiate his hunger,also starts eating along with us.
