I’ll be returning once again to host the coveted “Chef’s Table” where chefs get up close and personal for 45 minute sessions or so under a big tent with chairs, tables and FREE FOOD (and sometimes drink!)  Come be inspired by Atlanta’s best Chef’s and learn some of their secrets.  I give away prizes, we dance and laugh…like a big cocktail party!  Our location overlooking the beautiful Fourth Ward Park was fantastic.  Please stop by and say HI!

For the first time, Taste of Atlanta will continue into the evening on Saturday of festival weekend with a concert from 7-11pm.  At 7pm, the famed 7 man band Yacht Rock Revue will be crooning classic hits and Halloween tunes the crowd loves to sing along to for an evening to remember at Historic Fourth Ward Park.  I’ve partied to their music so many times…always a party!

Guests will be able to bring their own chairs and blankets to enjoy tunes on the lawn, and local food trucks will be selling bites for purchase alongside drinks.
